NJ criminal defense lawyer Michael Peter Rubas has handled hundreds of felony criminal matters throughout the Courts of the State of New Jersey ranging from homicides, kidnapping, and weapons possession to drug cases and theft cases.

Mr. Rubas spends the necessary time to fully prepare cases and to get the best possible results in each case.

The filing of criminal charges can turn someone’s life upside-down. Mr. Rubas recognizes that such charges cause anguish for not only the client but their entire family. As such, it is necessary to retain counsel that has the experience and aggressiveness that you need in order to see your charges reduced or dismissed.

Criminal defense lawyer Rubas has the experience defending clients from all kinds of criminal charges, including those that involve:

  • Homicides
  • Vehicular Homicides and Assault by Automobile
  • Violent Crimes
  • Sexual Assault and Child Endangerment Matters (see below)
  • Final Restraining Orders
  • Theft and Property Crimes
  • White Collar Crimes
  • Unlawful Weapons Possession

Mr. Rubas also specializes in the defense of clients charged with sexual assault and child endangerment crimes. The mere accusation of sexual abuse carries extreme stigma and requires the most skilled and aggressive possible defense. Further, a common result of any conviction, even with a plea bargain, is lifetime registration as a sex offender. Thus, it is critical to understand every step of the trial and plea-bargain process.

Mr. Rubas has an intricate understanding of the interview and investigative techniques of the Special Victims Unit, the prosecutor’s use of the widely debunked and misplaced theory of Child Sexual Abuse Accommodation Syndrome, and the difficulties with child hearsay statements and fresh complaint testimony. Finally, Mr. Rubas understands and can provide an in-depth analysis of the requirements of Megan’s Law and Parole Supervision for Life.

Mr. Rubas understands the prosecutions’ tactics and will strategically build your aggressive defense.
