About me

At the Law Offices of Eric B. Morrell, we have extensive experience defending people in New Jersey who have been charged with Indictable Offenses or Disorderly Persons Offenses. In our years of practice, we have successfully protected the rights of thousands of individuals. We also frequently represent Rutgers students in criminal, DWI and municipal court matters. 


As part of our comprehensive legal representation, The Law Offices of Eric B. Morrell have established solid relationships with a team of experts to assist our client's criminal defense. To do so, we may encourage our clients to work with external resources such as Private investigators, DWI Consultants, psychologists, counselors, and bail bondsmen. This allows us to keep our fees reasonable while providing  comprehensive and thorough representation.

    I have worked with Eric for the past 5 years as a colleague . Eric has consistently obtained great results for the clients I have referred to him which I attribute to his diligence and superior ability to present his clients' factual circumstances in court. I highly recommend Eric as the attorney you need when facing serious legal consequences.
