Why do I have to appear in Metuchen Municipal Court?

The Metuchen Municipal Court presides over disorderly persons offenses, traffic violations, and DWIs. A disorderly persons offense is criminal offense that is not indictable in the county superior court. “DPs” are commonly thought of as minor offenses and while this may be the case, a conviction will lead to not so minor consequences. Once convicted for a “DP” the judge may order you to pay hefty fines, fees, community service, supervised probation, or even a stay in the county jail.

A conviction for a DWI in this court is also very serious and also carries a mandatory license suspension. This could impact your ability to get to and from work and may result in losing your job or making it difficult to obtain one.

If you are scheduled to appear before the Metuchen Municipal Court, even if the charge or ticket is small, it is important to at least consult a professional, experienced lawyer to make sure you know everything you need to know and are thoroughly prepared.

The Metuchen Municipal Court is presided over by Hon. Gary M. Price. He graduated from Seton Hall School of Law admitted to the New Jersey Bar in 1988. He will serve as a Municipal Court judge through 2015.

About Metuchen

Metuchen is a borough of around 13,500 people completely surrounded by Edison Township. It occupies an area of just under 3 square miles, so population density is high. This could explain the higher rate of property crime in the area, although it is much smaller than the national average. Both Route 27 and CR-531 pass through town and police are very diligent in writing tickets. Therefore, traffic violations and DWIs are somewhat frequent. The lawyers of LS&P Lawyers defend all types of criminal charges and they will make sure that you receive the best representation possible.

The Metuchen Municipal Court hears an average of 15 disorderly persons cases and 30 DWI & traffic infractions every week. Our attorneys are familiar with courtroom procedure and will help you through every step of the process.
