Travis J. Tormey is an experienced criminal defense attorney whose deep roots in New Jersey have fostered a wealth of relationships with figures across the state’s legal landscape. Travis graduated summa cum laude from Rutgers University and cum laude from Seton Hall University Law School. During law school, Travis worked for the United States Attorney’s Office in Newark for now-Governor Chris Christie.
Travis exclusively practices criminal law, working with a wealth of experience that includes previously serving as a partner at a state-wide criminal practice firm where he handled drug possession, assault, gun possession, and drunk driving cases. During his time there, his high profile work included representing the former deputy-mayor of Howell Township in Monmouth County, who was accused of embezzling $17,000.00 from the township.
While many criminal attorneys are apt to go with a basic plea deal in working on criminal defense, Travis takes a more aggressive approach. Whether it’s filing motions to suppress evidence or taking the case all the way to trial, he’s willing to put in the extra effort. At the same time, he’s always honest and straightforward with clients, willing to discuss a case’s likely outcome and openly advise a client on the most efficient approach. Now, Travis founded the Tormey Law Firm, LLC with offices in Paramus and Morristown, New Jersey. As a result, Travis appears on an almost-daily basis in courts in Morris County and the surrounding areas developing relationships with local prosecutors and judges.
Travis’ experience in criminal law is matched only in his experience blogging, as this is his third publication. Travis previously authored a blog while he was in finishing up at Seton Hall and then at his previous firm. Also, Mr. Tormey’s blog was cited in an AOL News article entitled, “Snooki arrested for being Snooki: What defines disorderly conduct?” Travis was also quoted in the Asbury Park Press as a legal resource regarding Megan’s Law.
