The Experienced And Sophisticated Representation You Need
Under the law, you are presumed innocent, even when the “court of public opinion” has already decided you are guilty. Police and prosecutors have many resources and advantages. To level the playing field, you need a skilled and aggressive defense.
We are William Fetky and Jonathan Petty, criminal defense trial lawyers with a long record of favorable outcomes. We have been hired for some of the biggest cases in New Jersey – defending public officials, elite athletes and high-profile business owners – but we regularly represent ordinary people who are accused of crimes and fearful about their future.
Criminal Defense Is All We Do
We have devoted our professional lives to defending the accused. Based in Middlesex County, we handle cases throughout Central New Jersey and statewide. And while we are best known for major crimes, we handle the full range of criminal matters, including:
- DWI and traffic crimes
- Disorderly person offenses (shoplifting, domestic assault, resisting arrest)
- White collar offenses (fraud, embezzlement, identity theft, money laundering)
- Crimes of violence (aggravated assault, robbery, murder)
- Drug offenses (possession, trafficking, manufacturing)
- Sex crimes (rape charges, sex with minors, child porn)
- Parole and probation violations
- Juvenile offenses
- Criminal appeals and post-conviction relief
- Expungement of past arrests and convictions
Uniquely Qualified To Challenge The Allegations
Before he opened his own criminal defense practice, William Fetky served 14 years as a police officer in New York and as an assistant prosecutor in New Jersey. That “insider” experience helps us defend our clients because we understand the law enforcement procedure and prosecution tactics. We can anticipate their moves and spot the weaknesses in their case.
What also sets us apart is the fact that we regularly take cases to trial. While the vast majority of cases are resolved out of court, the other side knows we will not fold at the first plea offer, and they know that we win a lot of cases when we do get in front of a jury. That courtroom reputation in turn gives us better leverage in negotiations.
Put Your Trust In Our Experience
We have 45 years of combined experience, including hundreds of criminal trials. When your freedom, your livelihood and your reputation are on the line, you can count on Fetky & Petty, LLC, for strategic and spirited defense.
