Personal Injury – An Overview

Personal injury lawsuits are filed by people (or their representatives) injured due to the negligence of someone else. That means your injuries were caused by the actions of another person or company. The injury may be either physical or emotional, and it can arise from a variety of sources or types of conduct. Some of the most common types of personal injury cases include slip and fall, automobile accidents, assaults and battery, medical malpractice, and product liability. In general, the goal of a personal injury action is to determine who was responsible and to compel the responsible party to compensate the injured person for the losses sustained. If you or someone you know has been injured by the careless actions of another, contact us to find out how we can help you preserve your rights.

Strong Criminal Defense

Barrett & Pavluk, LLC provides sound representation, always fighting on your behalf if you are accused of:

  • Motor Vehicle Municipal Court Offenses

  • Assault Charges
  • Theft Crimes
  • Disorderly Conduct

If you are accused of a crime and need representation, Barrett & Pavluk, LLC can help. Firm partners Judson Barrett and Arthur M. Pavluk III will personally meet with you to discuss the charges against you and inform you of potential penalties. At that time, we may discuss possible diversionary programs which may help you avoid prosecution, including the New Jersey Pre-Trial Intervention Program (PTI).

What is the Pretrial Intervention Program (PTI)?

The Pretrial Intervention Program (PTI) provides defendants, generally first-time offenders, with opportunities for alternatives to the traditional criminal justice process of ordinary prosecution. PTI seeks to render early rehabilitative services, when such services can reasonably be expected to deter future criminal behavior. The PTI program is based on a rehabilitative model that recognizes that there may be an apparent causal connection between the offense charged and the rehabilitative needs of a defendant. Further, the rehabilitative model emphasizes that social, cultural, and economic conditions often result in a defendant’s decision to commit crime.

Simply stated, PTI strives to solve personal problems which tend to result from the conditions that appear to cause crime, and ultimately, to deter future criminal or disorderly behavior by a defendant.

What Are The Benefits of the Pretrial Intervention Program (PTI)?

  • If PTI is successfully completed, there is no record of conviction and the defendant avoids the stigma of a criminal record.
  • Early intervention allows rehabilitative services to be provided soon after the alleged offense, in an attempt to correct the behavior that led to the offense.
  • Many of the costs associated with the formal court process are eliminated through acceptance into PTI.

What are the Conditions for Participation In Pretrial Intervention?

Supervision under the PTI program may average from one to three years. Certain standard conditions are imposed on those accepted into PTI, such as, random urine monitoring, and assessments for fees, penalties and fines. Additional conditions may also be imposed to require the performance of community service, payment of restitution, and submission to psychological and/or drug and alcohol evaluations with compliance to recommended treatment programs.

If a defendant successfully completes all the conditions of PTI, then the original charges are dismissed and there is no record of conviction.

If a defendant does not successfully complete the conditions of PTI, then the defendant is terminated from the PTI program and the case is returned to the trial list.

Who is Eligible for Pretrial Intervention (PTI)?

Any defendant who is charged with an indictable offense may apply.
