Being charged with committing a criminal offense is not something a person should take lightly. Criminal proceedings differ vastly from civil matters such as divorces and custody battles because of the stakes involved. A successful criminal conviction can result in the deprivation of life, liberty, or property. That is why the Bill of Rights in our country’s constitution limited the government’s powers when it comes to criminal proceedings. Because the stakes in a criminal case are so much higher than other legal actions, it is in your best interests to consult an experienced criminal defense attorney from Livingston to protect your due process rights.
At Ziegler, Zemsky & Resnick, our legal team has dedicated much of its practice to representing Livingston residents and their families in various family law matters. However, it is not uncommon for criminal law and family law to overlap. Thankfully, our legal team also has experience handling criminal cases. We provide the same compassionate and personalized approach to client services for our criminal defense clients as we do with our family law clients to make sure your legal rights and interests are respected.

Comprehensive Criminal Defense Counsel
Criminal and civil proceedings are two sides of the same coin. Although both are crucial parts of the American justice system, they function differently. For the most part, civil proceedings mostly involve disputes between private parties or an agent of the government acting as a private party. A private individual can sue another private individual or the government and vice versa. These proceedings typically involve one party claiming some right or privilege against the other party.
Conversely, criminal cases involve the government trying to punish private persons for committing wrongs against society as a whole. The government represents “The People” against a criminal defendant, trying to prove that they committed the crime using evidence gathered by law enforcement from their criminal investigations. Criminal cases are primarily punitive in nature. If convicted, you can face imprisonment for months or even years and incur hefty criminal fines.
