My experience with the Criminal Justice System dates back to my internship and clerkship with the Hon. Paul J. Vichness, JSC. I also had the pleasure of interning for the Essex County Prosecutor's Office, where I later was sworn in as an Assistant Prosecutor. During my experience as a law clerk, as well as an Assistant Prosecutor, I gained valuable experience with legal research and writing - a skill that I have honed and utilize to date on behalf of my clients.
After leaving the Essex County Prosecutor's office, I was an Assistant Prosecutor for the City of Newark where I assisted in organizing and supporting the City's Quality of Life program. I worked closely with the Port Authority Police to prosecute illegal limousine activity at the Newark Airport. I also taught at the Newark Police Academy, training newly promoted Sergeants and Lieutenants about Newark municipal ordinances, and counterfeit DVDs and CDs being sold in the City in violation of State law.
Since leaving the City of Newark, I had my own law practice, and returned to teaching as an adjunct professor for the Criminal Justice Departments at Kean University, County College of Morris, and the College of St. Elizabeth. I am also a Senior Instructor for Garden State CLE, teaching other attorneys about various areas of criminal law.
In 2013, I joined the Rem Law Group and specialize in Criminal Defense, DWI/DUI, Motor Vehicle Offenses, and Domestic Violence.

I had the pleasure working with Tamra when we were assistant prosecutors in Essex County. She was my trial partner and one of the most dedicated attorneys that I have ever known. She is extremely bright, diligent, and practical. Since that time, I have had the pleasure of recommending several criminal and municpal matters to Tamra. The feed back I got from the referrals was excellent. I will continue to recommend Tamra in the future for such matters and would strongly suggest that anyone looking for a criminal/municipal attorney consider Tamra.
