Essex County

The Essex County Superior Court is located at 50 West Market Street in Newark New Jersey. The Court presided over indictable criminal charges. Examples of this type of charge are Possession of CDS, Distribution in a School Zone or Park, Aggravated Assault, Theft over $200, Prescription Drug Fraud and Gun Possession offenses.

This is just a few examples of the sort of criminal cases the court hears, but one thing is for certain. Attorneys at our firm have the experience and track record to give you the best shot at beating the rap. If your case goes to trial, we have the not guilty verdicts under our belt. If your case needs to be negotiated, we have countless success stories.
