The Superior Court of New Jersey, which is present in each county, is the trial division of our Court system. It is at this level that a defendant would either enter into a guilty plea or have a trial, which may result in a conviction. After being sentenced in a criminal matter, there is only 45 days available to you to file an appeal to the Superior Court of New Jersey Appellate Division. Therefore, it is extremely important to contact Kahn, Gigliotti & Lehrfeld immediately if you feel that your plea or conviction was either erroneous or a poor decision on your part.
Kahn, Gigliotti & Lehrfeld has a very talented legal research and writing appeals team. Members of this division focus their practice almost exclusively on Fourth Amendment issues which involve the lawfulness of search and seizures.
