Passionate Defenders of Justice To Help You Pursue The Truth & Second Chances

Attorney Michael Roberts

Award-Winning Rising Star Attorney
Michael Roberts, New Jersey Criminal Lawyer

Michael Brett Roberts has believed from an early age that every person accused of a crime deserves a zealous defense. No matter your age, ethnicity, gender, or past, Michael feels you need your attorney fighting for you like they would fight for their own freedom, money, or reputation. Michael believes that good people make mistakes and he believes in second chances.

For the past nine years, he has been honing his craft by taking on tough cases, dealing with difficult judges and prosecutors, and, most importantly, by helping his clients. He has handled matters ranging from domestic violence to possession and distribution of CDS to first-degree murder.

He was honored to be awarded the New Jersey Law Journal New Leaders of the Bar Award in 2015 and 2016, and the Middlesex County Bar 2015 Young Lawyer of the Year. He has been recognized as a Rising Star by Super Lawyers® for the past three years. Michael has also been featured on local television speaking on gun rights, firearm laws, and bail reform. He has been a featured presenter to other lawyers on various topics throughout New Jersey. Michael proudly serves as a Trustee to the Middlesex County Bar Foundation, a Trustee to the New Jersey State Bar Criminal Section, and is the head coach to the Rutgers University Mock Trial, the same university where Michael earned his J.D. and his bachelor’s in political science and philosophy.
