William E. Wachowski has more than 12 years of criminal law experience with him. Attorney Wachowski is a native Pennsylvanian, and earned a B.S. degree in education from Temple University in 1992. Thereafter, he worked as a middle-school teacher for six years before deciding to become a lawyer. Attorney Wachowski enrolled at Rutgers School of Law, received his J.D. in 2001, and has been practicing law in New Jersey ever since.
Attorney Wachowski recently had a jury trial wherein his client was potentially facing fifteen (15) years behind bars if convicted, with parole ineligibility (meaning if convicted the client would have to serve at least forty-two months of their sentence before being eligible for parole). The charges were Terroristic Threats and Possession of a Handgun for Unlawful Purpose. The jury returned NOT GUILTY on all charges in less than one (1) hour of deliberating.
At the beginning of his law career, Attorney Wachowski handled medical malpractice cases. However, he thereafter turned to criminal law as a prosecutor for numerous municipalities in New Jersey. He then launched his own solo practice, focusing on defending individuals charged with indictable crimes, ranging from simple drug possession to murder.
Attorney Wachowski enjoys the competitive aspect of trying cases in court and has developed a reputation for his skills in trials as well as negotiating with prosecutors on behalf of his clients. “I also enjoy helping people who have found themselves in bad situations,” Attorney Wachowski says.
Attorney Wachowski is a volunteer firefighter and EMT and takes great pride in not only helping people with their criminal matters, but also people in emergency situations. He also enjoys freshwater and saltwater fishing.
