    Marijuana Is Legal In New Jersey. What Does That Mean?

    The Attorney General has issued guidelines related to the new law in New Jersey which has legalized marijuana. The first instruction to all prosecutors is that any pending charge of distribution of marijuana or hashish be dismissed.

    If you have any of the above charges currently pending against you, they will be dismissed.

    The Attorney General’s Directive also addresses cases which had been previously resolved. For all of the same criminal charges listed above that have already been resolved, any guilty verdict or plea for placement in a diversionary program prior to February 22, 2021, will be vacated. Any outstanding fines, periods of incarceration, supervision, probation, or parole will also be vacated if they were imposed because of a violation of one of the above-described statutes.

    You should call Katie or Michael at Attorneys Hartman Chartered to discuss your status under the new law. You can contact us at 856-393-6073 or by emailing us at ahartman@attorneyshartman.com.

    I was served with disciplinary charges at work which then developed into criminal charges. Katie explained each issue to me, and was able to resolve both the criminal case and my discipline! She was always available to me if I had questions and I am very happy with the outcome!


    After working with another attorney, who messed up my case, I hired Katherine Hartman to represent me. I found her to be sincere, trustworthy, knowledgeable and patient in explaining everything to me. In short, Katherine kept me out of jail and I would hire again! (Even though I hope I never have to see her again!)


    I highly recommend the Hartman Law Firm. Katie Hartman is a true professional, and an absolute advocate for her clients. She takes pride in making herself available for her clients in regards to questions or concerns relating to your case. She will leave no stone unturned!


    I wish I could select a higher star rating. Our Company was assisted by Michael Mormando of Attorneys Hartman in a municipal case and we simply could not be happier with the way our case was handled. Michael was extremely knowledgeable and professional. He is a true master of his craft and we would highly recommend his services


    Katherine was such a pleasure to work with! She was very caring, responsive, and professional throughout my whole experience. I will continue to recommend her and her firm to all of my friends and family
