The Insights Of An Ex-Police Officer And Prosecutor
William Fetky served 14 years as a police officer in Westchester County, New York, before switching careers.

Jonathan Petty clerked for the Hon. Roger W. Daley in Middlesex County in law school. During his clerkship, he worked with Judge Daley on juvenile waiver decisions that reached the New Jersey Supreme Court. After earning his law degree in 2008, he joined Mr. Fetky’s criminal defense practice. Mr. Petty is admitted to the bar in New Jersey and Pennsylvania, and to the U.S. District Court of New Jersey. He has been selected to Super Lawyers Rising Stars in 2020, 2021 and 2022.
We Are Trial Lawyers With A Solid Track Record
Many defense attorneys are skilled negotiators but shy away from the courtroom. We are in court nearly every day in bond hearings, evidentiary hearings and other proceedings, and we regularly take cases all the way to trial. That is our mindset from the beginning of the case, to put the prosecution on notice that we mean business and to put our clients in position for the most favorable resolution.
We have won notable victories in motions, trials and appeals, in addition to many negotiated deals for our clients. We have handled many high-profile cases, such as the recent trial of Ted Connors who was charged with two murders in a cold case dating back more than 25 years.
Time Is Of The Essence
If you are accused of a serious crime or under investigation, you cannot afford to wait and see. You need a proactive defense to protect your rights and intervene on your behalf. We strive to mount a true defense and spare you from the worst consequences.
