Municipal Charges And Traffic Offenses
Municipal court is the catch-all for minor crimes and violations that are not indictable offenses. With 45-plus years of combined experience, our criminal defense attorneys have handled the full range of municipal offenses, including:
- Drunk driving (DWI)
- Speeding tickets and traffic violations
- Simple assault
- Domestic assault
- Violation of a restraining order
- Shoplifting and petty theft
- Trespassing and vandalism
- Possession of marijuana
- Disorderly conduct
- Criminal harassment
Aggressive Representation To Limit The Consequences
Municipal court offenses carry a range of potential penalties, including jail time, license suspension, fines, probation and community service. Traffic violations also count as points against your New Jersey driver’s license. The arrest and/or conviction will go on your criminal record, which can cause future problems for employment, housing, college financial aid, volunteer activities and other aspects of life.
Our attorneys will aggressively challenge the circumstances of your arrest and the evidence in the criminal complaint or summons. We are frequently successful in getting municipal charges dismissed or reduced. In other cases, we have negotiated for lesser punishment or deferment programs that keep the charges off one’s record.
