Experienced New Jersey Criminal Lawyers

Our New Jersey Criminal Practice Group, chaired by former Morris County Chief Assistant Prosecutor and Einhorn Harris Counsel Matthew James Troiano, includes a roster of experienced attorneys dedicated to protecting the rights of the accused, and those immersed in complex investigations or crisis situations who are in need of legal representation.

Our Criminal Practice Group is led by Chair and Counsel Matthew James Troiano, a veteran prosecutor and seasoned trial attorney, who has handled a variety of high-profile criminal matters, including multiple homicide trials.  He is joined by Partner Michael R. Ascher, a former New Jersey Deputy Attorney General and Assistant County Prosecutor; Counsel Brian D. Kenney, a former Morris County Assistant Prosecutor and experienced criminal defense lawyer; and Partner Matheu D. Nunn, a former Morris County Assistant Prosecutor and Municipal Prosecutor, who handles a broad range of litigation and serves as co-chair of the Firm’s Appellate Practice.

Our Criminal Law Attorneys Focus on Providing Superior Criminal Defense Strategies and Counsel for Complex Investigations. 

As criminal defense attorneys with behind-the-scenes insight gained through years as successful prosecutors, the attorneys in our Criminal Practice Group can quickly and easily navigate the complex Criminal Justice System and identify weaknesses in the Prosecution’s case from the initial investigation through the grand jury process, and, ultimately, in their presentation at trial. Leveraging the benefit of this insider insight, the Einhorn Harris Criminal Practice Group has been able to resolve serious criminal charges for many clients, without the need for trial, while also reducing their criminal exposure, to include their exposure to jail time or prison. If, however, the case cannot be resolved, our criminal defense attorneys are prepared to present a rigorous trial defense, including an independent investigation, any and all applicable motions, and the use of expert witnesses.

Years of Experience in Municipal Courts Can Help our Clients Resolve Local Court Matters.

In addition to representing clients charged with serious violations at the State and Federal level, the Criminal Practice Group also has extensive experience with municipal court matters. Because our criminal defense attorneys have spent years working within the municipal court system, we have insight that can often lead to a quick resolution for the benefit of our client.

The Criminal Practice Group at Einhorn Harris is prepared to handle any criminal or municipal court matter (criminal or traffic) that can arise in New Jersey, whether in State or Federal Court, including:
