Criminal Defense and Juvenile Defense
Being charged with a crime in New Jersey is a frightening and life-changing experience: a conviction means the potential loss of your freedom and lasting damage to your reputation. The best way to protect your future is to contact the experienced criminal defense attorneys at Rosenblatt Law PC.
If you are a juvenile or the parent of a juvenile that has been charged with delinquency for offenses that, if committed by an adult, would constitute crimes or offenses, it is important to have an advocate in your corner that is experienced in the different rules, procedures, and possible outcomes that apply in juvenile cases.

If you have been convicted of a crime or you have lost a civil case, it may be possible to appeal the verdict; however, your trial attorney may not have experience with the appeals process. At Rosenblatt Law PC, we have in depth knowledge of the rules of procedure in both the state and federal appellate courts. Our appellate attorneys also have exceptional legal writing and oral argument skills that are essential for successful appeals in all types of criminal matters.
Legal Malpractice and Attorney Ethics
All practicing lawyers have a duty to provide their clients with skilled and competent representation. When an attorney fails to act in a manner that is consistent with the accepted standards of care and causes damage to the client as a result, the client has a right to sue to recover damages. At the same time, a lawyer who has been accused of legal malpractice has a right to first-rate representation.
To prove a legal malpractice case, the plaintiff must show the existence of an attorney-client relationship; that the attorney breached the applicable standard of care; that such a breach proximately caused (or was a substantial factor in causing) actual damages. Legal malpractice cases are difficult and therefore require specific knowledge and experience. If you believe you have been harmed by your attorney, we know how to assert your rights diligently. Similarly, if you are a lawyer who has been wrongly accused of legal malpractice or an ethics violation, we will defend your reputation and your livelihood. Finally, our attorneys also provide expert testimony in
legal malpractice cases.
- Breach of attorney-client privilege
- Mishandling of client funds (e.g. commingling)
- Failure to adhere to court deadlines
- Violations of time limits and statutes of limitations
- Misinterpretation of the law
- Excessive billing and fee disputes
Civil Asset Forfeiture
At Rosenblatt Law PC, we provide counsel to clients and to other criminal defense attorneys whose clients’ property has been seized and subjected to civil forfeiture. With our experience and background, we understand the tactics authorities use to seize assets and will work tirelessly to protect clients’ property rights and recover what is rightfully theirs.
Civil forfeiture laws give law enforcement officials vast power to seize property if they suspect it has been involved in criminal activity, regardless of whether the owner has been convicted of or even charged with a crime. Civil forfeiture has increasingly become a tool that state and federal authorities utilize in drug crimes, white collar crimes, and RICO cases.
