Lawyers' Assistance


In keeping with the reason that the ACDL-NJ was established, the purpose and goals of the ACDL-NJ's Lawyers' Assistance Committee are to provide support and to be available to any criminal defense attorney in the State of New Jersey accused of any wrongdoing, criminal activity, ethical violation or contemptuous conduct arising out of that attorney's representation of a criminal defendant. The Committee is to lend legal assistance, legal research, counsel, and support in any court, whether it be Municipal, Superior, or Federal, to those criminal defense lawyers who, through their concern, compassion, and zeal find themselves being singled out for punishment, criticism or retribution by the very system which we seek to represent and protect. A call brings forth to that criminal defense lawyer some of the best legal talent in the state to their aid.

If you are a lawyer in need of assistance, contact acdl@acdlnj.org.
