Morristown & Newton Criminal Defense Attorney
If you are under investigation for criminal activity or have been arrested and charged with a crime, you want an experienced attorney who knows how to get results. The consequences of simply being arrested can be devastating and can limit your options for months or years. A conviction can cost you a substantial amount of money, your freedom and even your job. We can help.
At the Law Office of Howard D. Popper, PC, we bring more than 25 years of practice experience to people across New Jersey, including people charged with most types of crimes. We built our reputation and practice on our commitment to getting the best result for you. When you hire us to defend you in a criminal matter, you will always work directly with attorney Popper, never with an inexperienced associate or a paralegal. We will aggressively fight to protect your constitutional rights, using our considerable knowledge, skill, experience and resources to work toward the outcome you seek.
Our General Criminal Defense Practice
We aggressively fight for the rights of people who have been charged with the following crimes:
- Indictable offenses — We handle all types of serious crimes, from Superior Court Offenses such as aggravated assault and domestic violence to gun crimes, from robbery or burglary to homicide or certain drug offenses.
- Disorderly persons and petty disorderly persons crimes — We defend people charged with all types of minor offenses prosecuted in municipal court, including simple assault, resisting arrest, disorderly conduct, shoplifting, possession of less than 50 grams of marijuana, passing bad checks and public lewdness.

When representing you in a criminal matter, we will take all measures necessary to ensure that your constitutional rights were not violated. We will carefully investigate the facts and circumstances of your case to verify that there was probable cause for any search, seizure or arrest, and that you were properly notified of your rights if taken into custody. We will also confirm the source of all information against you to ensure that law enforcement officers followed procedures, and we will thoroughly question all potential witnesses in your case.
