Corruption Attorney Serving
Paterson, New Jersey & the New York Metropolitan Area

Protect Your Reputation Against
Corruption Charges

Corruption is an abuse of public trust and usually involves an official in public office. Crimes involving bribery charges are also crimes that are levied against public officials. Many times, these crimes involve illegal financial arrangements during which the abuse of power is leveraged for self-serving purposes, inconsistent with official duty and the rights of others.

These crimes are not taken lightly by the courts. Oftentimes, these charges besmirch the call to duty of all public officials, and sentences are meted out especially heavily, as with police corruption or corruption of a government official in high office. The Law Offices of Joel M. Bacher have been successfully defending these cases for over 40 years, and the charges run the gamut. If you’ve been charged, contact us to learn if we can help construct a defense to steadfastly if not forcefully defend your rights against the charges you face.

Bribery, Corruption and Other
White Collar Crimes

In order to convict you of bribery or other corruption-related crimes, prosecutors generally have to prove corrupt intent. This is not easy to do. Especially, if you make sure to enlist the help of a skilled criminal defense attorney right away before you talk to the police.

Let's Fight the Charges


Regardless of the “facts” upon arrest, if you are booked for corruption, bribery or other financial offenses, do not talk to the police about your version of the “facts.” Remember that their job is to gather evidence against you, even if you know them personally or they seem to be reasonable or friendly. The one person who will have only your interests at heart is your attorney.
