Our office is located at 24 Commerce Street, Suite 1001, Newark, NJ; Phone: 973-982-1200 and our main website is http://www.hwblaw.com which we invite you to visit for more information about us and our law practice.

Howard Bailey is committed to helping his clients and their families (as well as the casual reader visiting this blog) understand the sometimes trivial issues that can influence the prosecutor to downgrade or dismiss a case; or, influence a judge to ‘throw the book’ at a defendant.
After more than 40 years of experience in the field of criminal law as a criminal defense lawyer licensed in the State of New Jersey; as an Assistant Essex County Prosecutor; and, before that as a police officer, he also believes that humor (and sometimes laughter) helps to explain an issue, while not losing sight of the need for information that educates the reader as to why a particular issue does/does not help get a case thrown out by the prosecutor or judge.
He invites constructive comments on the articles he posts in particular; and, on this site in general. He reserves unto himself the right to eliminate comments that use offensive language (and yes, you know what those words are so don’t use them if you don’t want him to delete what you wrote) or improperly disparage the law, lawyers, or the legal system; or, which are in his sole opinion are irrelevant to the issues he discusses or the purpose of this blog.
