Experienced Defense Attorney Serving Ridgewood, NJ

Attorney Scott Gorman provides experienced, strategic and aggressive legal representation for clients facing the following types of charges in Ridgewood, NJ:

Driving Under the Influence (DUI)

In New Jersey, DUI charges carry the potential for fines, jail time, loss of driving privileges, insurance surcharges and other steep penalties. Repeat offenders are even more at risk, and individuals who are arrested after causing an accident, driving in a school zone or with a minor in their vehicle can face enhanced penalties as well.

Domestic Violence

Sexual assault (rape), violent assault, stalking, cyberstalking and other crimes carry enhanced penalties when charged in situations involving boyfriends, girlfriends, spouses and other family members. Attorney Scott Gorman provides vigorous defense for clients accused of domestic violence, and he has particular experience shedding light on false allegations.

Drug Crimes

Drug crimes carry significant penalties under New Jersey law, and, depending on the substance involved, possessing even a few ounces or milligrams can lead to charges for a first-degree or second-degree indictable offense. Attorney Scott Gorman represents clients charged with all types of New Jersey drug crimes, including possession, cultivation, manufacturing, distribution and trafficking.


In New Jersey, most criminal convictions are eligible for expungement once five years have elapsed since the later of the completion of probation or parole, release from prison, or payment of all fines.
