Reputable. Respected. Results-Oriented.

Strong And Smart Defense For Anyone Accused Of A Violent Crime

No matter how serious the charges, our system is built on the presumption of innocence. Never forget that you have rights and defenses, and that the government has the burden to prove its case. To give yourself a fighting chance, you need an experienced criminal defense lawyer who knows the law and the local justice system.

Faugno & Associates, L.L.C., has successfully defended those accused of crimes of violence, from homicides to assaults. If you get us involved early, we can make a difference in the outcome. We aim high – acquittal, dismissal, reduced charges or the shortest possible sentence.

Don’t say a word to police until you’ve had a word with your lawyer.

We Don’t Judge You. We Defend You.

Lead trial lawyer Paul Faugno has handled high-profile felony cases throughout New Jersey, with notable results in jury trials. Whatever the charges, we have probably defended a similar case. We welcome all violent crime cases – state or federal charges – including:

  • First-degree or second-degree murder
  • Manslaughter or negligent homicide
  • Vehicular homicide
  • Assault and aggravated assault
  • Armed robbery or carjacking
  • First-degree burglary or home invasion
  • Kidnapping
  • Arson
  • Rape charges or sexual assault of minors

Taking Aim At The Prosecution’s Case

A conviction for violent crimes means years or decades in prison. We start with the mindset of strongly asserting your rights and fighting the charges. Mr. Faugno and his colleagues understand what’s at stake and they know how to work your case. Every facet of the police investigation and the arrest is examined for defense opportunities, from the legality of surveillance and search warrants to the validity of statements by victims, witnesses and informants. We prepare thoroughly for trial, which improves leverage for plea negotiations if and when that option makes sense for our clients.
