At LS&P Lawyers our defense attorneys represent clients in East Orange Municipal Court for all criminal, DWI and motor vehicle offenses. Walking into court alone can be overwhelming and intimidating.

What Types of Cases Does the East Orange Municipal Court Handle?
The East Orange Municipal Court has the power to preside over disorderly persons cases, DWI cases, and traffic violations. A disorderly persons offense includes a number of different minor offenses: possession of less than 50 grams of marijuana, possession of drug paraphernalia, disorderly conduct, obstruction, criminal mischief, shoplifting etc. Common traffic offenses in the area include speeding, driving without insurance, reckless driving, and leaving the scene of an accident. These may not seem very severe, but if you are convicted the consequences can be devastating. Heavy fines, a criminal record, a suspension of your license, and even jail-time can all result from a guilty verdict. DWI convictions are even more unforgiving, so it is essential for you to seek experienced and aggressive legal representation. Our attorneys have years of practice with these kinds of cases and will know how to handle your charge. One of our attorneys even has advanced training in the Alcotest and Field Sobriety Test, both of which are methods used by police to determine if you were intoxicated while driving. Very few attorneys in the state have this sort of training, which can be used to find irregularities in the officer’s performance of the test. These tactics weaken the State’s case and improves yours, so if you have been arrested for DWI call us immediately at 908-709-0500.
This court is presided over by Hon. John H. Watson, Jr. He received his law degree from Rutgers University and has been practicing for over 35 years.
