John Paragano, Criminal Defense Attorney

One of the first questions someone who is facing potential criminal charges will ask themselves is, do I need to hire an attorney?  Whether you believe your charges are minimal, you are only under investigation and have not yet been charged with a crime, or you are facing serious criminal charges; without the proper representation from an experienced criminal defense attorney, you could put yourself, and your family, at risk of serious life-altering consequences.  The right attorney will play a vital role in protecting your rights and developing a strong defense strategy for moving forward.

Navigating the criminal justice system can be overwhelming, intimidating, and frightening especially if you do not have the right representation guiding the way for you.  With over thirty years of criminal defense experience, including six years serving as a Municipal Court Judge in Union Township from 1999-2005 (Union County), John Paragano has a deep understanding of New Jersey law and the New Jersey justice system.  His extensive experience paired with the relationships he has built with clients, colleagues, prosecutors, and other members of the criminal justice system, has earned John Paragano a reputation for being an aggressive and skilled advocate.  He will work tirelessly to protect your rights.

Being accused of a crime, whether you are guilty or not, can have a negative impact on your life both personally and professionally.  A simple accusation can result in family and friends distancing themselves from you and could potentially lead to professional consequences.  No matter the allegations or charges brought against you, the Law Offices of John Paragano will not discriminate.  John Paragano practices law based on the Constitutionally protected right that each accused person is innocent until proven guilty. With this guiding principle serving as the foundation of his law practice, John Paragano works relentlessly to defend clients charged with criminal matters ranging from simple infractions such as property crimes and misdemeanors to more serious crimes including sex offenses and homicide.  Whether you are facing a fine or a potential life sentence, the Law Offices of John Paragano will fight to protect your rights every step of the way.
