Alissa D. Hascup, Esq.

New Jersey Criminal and DWI Defense AttorneyAlissa Hascup NJ Criminal Defense Lawyer

Alissa D. Hascup, Esq. is a graduate of the University of Richmond and Hofstra University School of Law. After interning with the New York County Defender Services and the Hofstra University Criminal Justice Clinic (where she received the highest honors), Ms. Hascup formally began her legal career in 2004 at a small criminal defense firm in Monmouth County, New Jersey.  There, she was exposed to a wide range of cases, including Homicide, Weapons offensesSexual offenses, and DWI’s. She assisted in the representation of individuals charged with criminal offenses at the Federal and State levels, as well as the representation of public officials and law enforcement officers charged with criminal and administrative offenses.

In 2007, Ms. Hascup joined a small criminal defense firm in Essex County, New Jersey.  During her time there, she continued to successfully defend individuals throughout the State of New Jersey, including those charged criminally at the Federal level with offenses such as Racketeering, Bank Fraud, and Drug Distribution, at the State level with offenses including Homicide, Terroristic Threats, and Aggravated Assault, and at the Municipal level with DWIs and traffic violations.  Ms. Hascup also continued to successfully represent law enforcement officers charged with administrative offenses.

Ultimately, in 2009, Ms. Hascup joined the Morris County Prosecutor’s Office as an Assistant Prosecutor in the Domestic Violence Unit.  Ms. Hascup effectively represented the State of New Jersey at trial on a number of domestic violence restraining order violation (“Contempt”) cases and related Assault and Harassment cases before being promoted to the Trial Unit, where she enjoyed immediate success prosecuting defendants for serious indictable/felony-level offenses including Bank Robbery, Armed Robbery, Eluding, Possession of Handguns, Endangering the Welfare of Children, and Aggravated Sexual Assault.  She also regularly served in the capacity as an “on-duty” prosecutor for the Major Crimes Unit, where she was tasked with responding to crime scenes and assisting in the underlying investigations with witness and suspect interviews and Search Warrant preparation.

At the Morris County Prosecutor’s Office, Ms. Hascup effectively represented the State of New Jersey at trial where defendants were charged with crimes such as Attempted Murder, Aggravated Assault, Burglary, and Unlawful Possession of Weapons.  She also skillfully argued a host of motions, handled hundreds of plea agreements, and appeared regularly before the courts for the sentencing of defendants.  Ms. Hascup’s successes were often published in the Star Ledger and the Daily Record.  She received global recognition in 2012 for her prosecution of a California man charged with Possession With Intent to Distribute CDS – 364 Pounds of Marijuana.  Also in 2012, Ms. Hascup was sworn in as a Special Deputy Attorney General for the purposes of prosecuting a multi-county Eluding and Burglary case involving known members of the Bloods gang.

In January of 2013, armed with her extensive prosecutorial experience, Ms. Hascup left the Morris County Prosecutor’s Office to return to private practice. She now aggressively and zealously defends individuals throughout the State of New Jersey charged with serious criminal offenses.
