How Brimage Guidelines Affect Your Case

In a case called State v. Brimage 153 N.J. 1 (1998), the New Jersey Supreme Court established guidelines that severely limit the discretion of prosecutors and mandate minimum sentences and parole ineligibility for certain drug offenses.

However, there are exceptions to these standards. Faced with this harsh reality, you need an aggressive and effective defense effort. Our attorneys have experience obtaining alternative outcomes for first-time offenders, including drug court and other outcomes. We will work diligently to obtain the best possible outcome for you.
