Our Criminal Attorneys Know Arson Defense
Helmer, Conley & Kasselman, P.A. has three lawyers that are Certified by the Supreme Court of New Jersey as Criminal Trial Attorneys. Call us for our extraordinary level of experience and recognized legal skill.
The law defines arson as intentionally setting a house, store, building, or vehicle on fire. The definition of this serious crime can also extend to setting grass or trees on fire. The consequences of a NJ arson conviction can include:
- Prison time;
- Lengthy probation;
- Loss of insurance; and
- Denial of entry into certain drug, alcohol and/or psychiatric care programs.
Some arson convictions require that 85 percent of the sentence be served without parole. Because arson cases frequently require scientific evidence, it is very important for those facing these charges to have a knowledgeable criminal defense law firm like Helmer, Conley & Kasselman, P.A. representing them.
Our NJ criminal defense attorneys have frequently avoided convictions for those charged with this serious criminal offense. Or they have urged the state to reduce arson charges to a lesser offense, such as criminal mischief.
