Criminal Defense: Providing Intelligent And Aggressive Representation On Behalf Of The Criminally Accused
The criminal defense practice at Faugno & Associates, L.L.C., is headed by founding attorney Mr. Paul Faugno. Many lawyers refer to themselves as trial lawyers or litigators when, in reality, these lawyers have very little jury trial experience. Mr. Faugno is a tested and proven trial attorney and has a track record of trying cases before jurors to successful verdicts, in both state and federal courts.
In defending his clients in Hackensack and throughout northern New Jersey, Mr. Faugno considers the presumption of innocence to be one of the greatest protections that our Constitution affords our citizens, irrespective of race, color or creed. Mr. Faugno has a reputation for defending cases successfully when other attorneys have advised their clients to accept plea agreements. However, he also understands the importance of resolving cases pretrial when it is in the best interest of the client. It is here that the excellent reputation he has developed with prosecutors, judges and colleagues over his 35 years of practice enables him to effectually negotiate resolutions when it’s in the best interest of his client.
Mr. Faugno has handled all types of criminal cases. His practice deals primarily with serious felony offenses at both the state and federal level, including:
- Drug crimes (possession, distribution, cultivation, etc.)
- Sexual assault
- White collar crimes
- Internet crimes
- Official misconduct (governmental misconduct)
- Homicide and attempted homicide
Paul Faugno is a member of the New Jersey Criminal Defense Association and has been designated a Super Lawyer every year since 2008. His trial experience in the field of personal injury parallels his reputation in the criminal defense area. Paul Faugno has a proven track record of substantial verdicts before jurors in various jurisdictions involving a wide array of personal injury cases.
Very few lawyers can attest to having such success in both criminal defense and personal injury. His ability to handle this broad range of cases is truly reflective of his talent as a trial lawyer.
