About

Being accused of a crime has far-reaching consequences. Each step in the criminal law process threatens your freedom, your employment, your reputation and the well-being of your kids.

I know it's not easy to know where to turn or who to go to for help. This is why I offer people a chance to meet with me for free at the Law Office of Michael A. Policastro to talk about their options. My law firm represents clients in Middlesex County, New Jersey, and the surrounding areas in all types of state and federal criminal cases.

Hiring someone to defend you against criminal charges is one of the biggest and most important decisions you will ever make. Choose someone who is honest with you and has the record to back up what is said.

Ask Me About My Track Record And Ask My Competitors About Theirs

Some lawyers do not like taking cases to trial. This isn't me. I'm in trial all the time, and I'm getting results. Going to trial isn't always in your best interest. I have a reputation for negotiating skillfully and taking cases to trial if need be.

I built my law office on word-of-mouth referrals. My many satisfied clients are the testament to my success.

When you're looking for a criminal defense lawyer, I encourage you to ask any lawyer you meet with to show you his or her record. When was the last time this lawyer went to trial and won a big case? Was it three, five or even 10 years ago? Do you think that attorney has what it takes to protect you at every turn, bringing your case wherever it needs to go? I'm not afraid to show you my track record of successes. I'm prepared to handle your case the right way — the best way for you.

Helping People When They Need It Most

I was a successful entrepreneur and business owner for many years before I decided to become an attorney. I became a criminal defense lawyer because I am passionate about helping people and fighting for justice. This is far more than a job or a career to me, and I believe that is why I am so successful.

I don't do this for the money — I don't need to. I do this to protect the rights of people in New Jersey, to advance justice.

I get results for my clients because I truly care about them. As your lawyer, my mission is to tell you the truth and solve your legal problems as quickly as possible.

I Will Work Within Your Budget. Payment Plans Available.

The best lawyer is not always the most expensive lawyer. I am proud to offer excellent legal services for reasonable fees, and I work within my client's budgets to the extent possible. If you're worried you can't afford an excellent attorney, ask me about payment plans during your free consultation.

Do not hire me — or any other lawyer — because of something you read on a website. This is a major decision, and you need to feel comfortable with your criminal defense attorney. Call 732-400-5161 to schedule a free consultation with me anytime, including nights and weekends. I'd be happy to meet with you and help you understand your options before you decide whether I'm the right attorney for you. Se habla español.
