The law office of Louis G. DeAngelis is a highly respected law firm in Bergen County, NJ. As a public defender, Mr. DeAngelis has defended thousands of cases over the past decade including major felony crimes, such as armed robbery, aggravated sexual assault, aggravated assault, white collar crimes, and serious drug crimes.

In 2005, Mr. DeAngelis started his own criminal law practice in Englewood, NJ. Since the practice opened its doors, Mr. DeAngelis has devoted his professional career to representing individuals who been charged with criminal offenses and DWI violations. His trial experience - as a public defender and as a private criminal defense lawyer - gives him unique insight into how the other side evaluates a case and prepares for court.

Mr. DeAngelis is a sole practitioner who has a strong commitment to serving the best interests of his clients. He understands that this is the most important event happening in your life right now. You can rest assured he will work tirelessly on your behalf and seek a favorable resolution to your criminal matter.


How Louis differentiates his practice from others is he will provide you with personalized attention. When you hire Louis, you know that your case will not be passed off to a new attorney or junior associate and he will be defending you until the end. He will help you from the initial interview meeting until the case is successfully resolved in the most favorable manner for you. Louis works frequently with skilled and experienced private investigators, accident re-constructionists, forensic psychologists and psychiatrists, and other experts who may be necessary for building a successful defense strategy in your case.

Everything Louis does is centered around achieving a dismissal or a not-guilty result in your case, so that you can get through life without having a criminal record.

Knowing the local prosecutor is critically important and helps tremendously in getting the charges dismissed. Since Louis has been a public defender in Bergen County for many years, there is a high likelihood that he has worked alongside the prosecutor in recent cases and therefore has the ability to discuss your case at a level that many other Bergen County attorneys cannot.
