Law Office of Eric Mark
Before you talk to the police, call my offices. As a Jersey City criminal defense attorney, I stand up for the rights of people accused of wrongdoing. Whether you are charged with a crime or being investigated, I will fight for the outcome you desire. I have the resources to handle any type of case including:
- Possession of a controlled substance
- Aggravated arson
- Retail theft
- Domestic violence
- Sexual assault
- Criminal trespass
- Terroristic threats
- Endangering the welfare of a child
- Resisting arrest
- Obstruction of justice
- Hindering apprehension
- Computer Crime
- Identity theft
- Criminal restraint
Driving Under the Influence:
DUI, drinking and driving, DWI – they mean the same thing and they are serious charges with life-changing consequences. To seek the best outcome, you need to hire a lawyer immediately or risk losing your license, your freedom and your financial future. DWI convictions in New Jersey and Jersey City carry penalties of license suspension, hundreds of dollars in fines, mandatory Intoxicated Driver Resource Center (IDRC) programs, community service and increased insurance costs.
As an aggressive and experienced DUI attorney in Jersey City, my strategy is to:
- Analyze evidence, police procedures and equipment for errors
- Seek and interview witnesses
- Review any videotapes from the scene.
- Seek reductions in charges and penalties, as well as advocate rehabilitative programs.
Call my office before you fill out any paperwork. The United States immigration process is one of the most challenging in the world. Not every lawyer is an immigration attorney. I have the resources and skills to handle endless paperwork and nerve-racking interviews. I offer you the knowledge to help with complicated forms, and the experience necessary to present the best possible case for seeking:
- Visas – tourist, job, family, fiancé, spouse
- Asylum and refugee status
- Defense for deportation
- Shelter from human trafficking and criminal actions
- Permanent residence (green card)
- Achieving citizenship through naturalization
- Diversity lottery
I take immigration cases to heart because of my experience living and working as a law intern abroad. I watched with pride as my own wife went through the immigration process, so I can relate to my clients in a highly personal way. I understand both the frustration of the system and the exhilaration of success.

About Eric M. Mark
After graduating from Pepperdine University School of Law, I became an Assistant Prosecutor in Somerset County, NJ. I handled criminal and juvenile prosecutions of all natures from the investigation stages through trial. I argued numerous cases in the Appellate Division and submitted briefs to the New Jersey Supreme Court.
While a law student I had several eye-opening experiences that helped me gain my appreciation for the law and our justice system. I was a judicial intern to the Honorable Katharine S. Hayden of the Federal District Court in Newark, NJ and I was a legal intern at the Ministry of Justice of the State of Israel. These places showed me people, cases and laws of various philosophies and different backgrounds.
