Passaic County NJ Public Offense Attorney
Defending Clients Charged with Offenses Against the Public in Passaic County, New Jersey
Under New Jersey law, a person obstructs the administration of law if he or she purposely obstructs, impairs or perverts the administration of law or other governmental function, or prevents or attempts to prevent a public servant from lawfully performing an official function by means of flight, intimidation, force, violence or physical interference or obstacle, or by means of any independently unlawful act. In other words, some individuals are accused of making a bad situation worse by breaking the law and then breaking the law again in an attempt to cover up the first offense, elude the police, avoid an arrest, or prevent a conviction.
If you face obstruction charges in addition to charges on an underlying offense such as domestic violence, criminal charges, or drunk driving, then you could receive significant additional jail time and a permanent conviction on your permanent record.
Ms. Hascup will review the facts of your case to determine if your constitutional rights were violated or whether the charges against you are unsupported by the facts alleged. She is a former prosecutor and now puts that experience to work for you. Contact Ms. Hascup today at 862-257-1200 to schedule an initial consultation, which is always offered free of charge.

Denville NJ Eluding Police Defense Attorney

Ms. Hascup understands the seriousness of your charges and has successfully defended many individuals who have found themselves in similar, unfortunate circumstances.
Recently, Ms. Hascup represented a college student who faced 5 to 10 years in prison on charges of second-degree eluding after being arrested in Parsippany, New Jersey. Because he was not a citizen of the United State, he also faced the collateral consequence of deportation if convicted. The client was riding a motorcycle for the first time when he was stopped by police. Ms. Hascup reviewed the video footage and was able to convince prosecutors that her client initially did not see police pursuing him. The video also permitted Ms. Hascup to argue that her client flipped the motorcycle while attempting to stop because of his unfamiliarity with the motorcycles, and not because he was fleeing. Because of the result that Ms. Hascup was able to obtain, the incident will be removed from the client’s permanent record once he completes a probation term, and he no longer has to fear that deportation will end his college career.
