Defending You Against Serious Criminal Charges

If you face criminal charges, it is important to remember that thanks to the U.S. Supreme Court’s Miranda decision that you have the right to remain silent and to have a lawyer with you during questioning. Most people know that, but do you know all your rights if you face serious legal charges? If you are accused of felony drug offenses, violent crimes charges and a variety of white collar crimes, you could face long prison sentences, huge fines and life-altering consequences. You will want an attorney who is knowledgeable, respected, involved – and serious. That attorney is Michael P. Koribanics, founding attorney of Koribanics & Koribanics.

After working as a former assistant prosecutor for Hudson County, Attorney Koribanics became a criminal defense lawyer. He has spent more than 30 years defending people against state and federal charges and representing clients subpoenaed to appear before federal grand juries.

Mr. Koribanics is certified by the Supreme Court of New Jersey as a criminal trial lawyer. He is a veteran of the court room and has been admitted to argue before the U.S. Supreme Court. Through his weekly contributions as a Law & Crime Legal Analyst on the Law & Crime Network, his expertise has become a valued resource for other attorneys.

All Drug-Related Charges Are Serious

There are differences in drug possession and distribution charges. If you are arrested with 50 grams or less of marijuana, it can be charged as possession. You face distribution charges for larger amounts. However, possession of any level of more dangerous drugs (including cocaine, ecstasy and heroin), could carry more severe penalties.There are other sentencing things to keep in mind. If you were arrested with drugs in your car, you could lose your driving rights. Possession of drug paraphernalia could carry criminal charges and people arrested with large amounts of a controlled substance could be charged with attempt to distribute charges that can be charged as felonies. Koribanics & Koribanics can help you challenge inappropriate steps taken by law enforcement to gain evidence, or discuss your best options for defense if the evidence against you is substantial.
