Joel Bacher, Criminal Defense Lawyer for Armed Robbery Charges

If you have been arrested on armed robbery charges, you are probably experiencing stress, discomfort, and an uncertainty on what the future holds for you. Maybe even anger, especially if consider yourself wrongly accused. Rest assured this: If I become your lawyer defending the charges you face, you will receive an aggressive and robust defense. We will immediately seek a dismissal or downgrade. If we go to trial ---- and I am rare among lawyers having special certifications for trial by the New Jersey Supreme Court --- I will fight tooth and nail for your acquittal.

A charge of Armed Robbery is a very serious charge, make no mistake. It involves fear, force or threats with weapons in the commission of an illegal taking of another's property with the victim present. Penalties can be heavy. Oftentimes other more severe charges are available to a prosecutor in an armed robbery offense, including, where possession of a deadly weapon is present. A weapons possession charge is rolled in as well.


If you are charged with armed robbery, you do not want to add fuel to the fire and provide information that can be held against you. DO NOT try to mitigate the charge. DO NOT admit to anything by telling your side of the story to police. If you are charged, or even about to be charged, DO NOT talk to the police. Period. DO NOT talk to the victim. The only person you should talk to is a criminal defense attorney who can review your armed robbery charge. The police, on the other hand, when questioning you, despite what your mother may have told you, are not your friends. Although they appear friendly as such, that is how they do their job to get information to hold against you. Be polite, yes, but be firm, and request a call to a criminal defense lawyer at your first opportunity and continue to remain silent in the meantime. Your freedom may depend on it.


If you or someone you know has been arrested for armed robbery I urge you to contact an experienced criminal defense attorney for representation and counsel. The State's prosecutor's office will always have the responsibility of proving you committed the offense beyond a reasonable doubt. And if the Court has any reason to believe you did not commit every element to every charge, the charges against you may be reduced or dismissed. I, Joel Bacher, am here to defend your rights. I have, for forty years, successfully defended numerous charges that involved violent crimes including armed robbery. My Wayne law office has achieved numerous acquittals, dismissals and downgrading of charges for a wide range of violent crimes. We prepare thoroughly for every case in the event of trial. We believe the way to mitigate if not dismiss an armed robbery charge is to negotiate and litigate from a position of strength.
