Municipal Courts

The New Jersey Municipal Court Attorneys at LS&P Lawyers have years of experience successfully representing clients in municipal courts throughout the State. If you have been charged with a traffic offense or disorderly persons (misdemeanor criminal offense) the lawyers at our Firm are ready to give you a free consultation and have the right answers to your questions.

The Municipal Courts in New Jersey have jurisdiction over all Title 39 motor vehicle violations and all Title 2C disorderly persons offenses. Common traffic offenses heard in the municipal court are speeding (NJSA 39:4-98), Careless Driving (NJSA 39:4-97), Driving While Suspended or Revoked (NJSA 39:3-40) and Driving While Intoxicated or DWI in violation of NJSA 39:4-50. Other common traffic offenses like Reckless Driving (NJSA 39:4-96), Leaving the Scene of an Accident (39:4-129) and Driving without Insurance (39:6B-2).

All traffic offenses carry potentially serious penalties. Heavy fines, loss of license, insurance premium surcharges and motor vehicle points are common. In some instances, county jail time can be imposed. There are many defenses to most traffic tickets, but not every attorney is up to speed on the status of the law and procedure as it relates to municipal practice.

Likewise, a conviction for a disorderly persons offense such as harassment (NJSA 2C:33-4), disorderly conduct, shoplifting, simple assault, possession of marijuana and paraphernalia etc., can result in a criminal record, loss of license, fines and jail time. The maximum penalty for a disorderly persons conviction is $1000 and a 6 month jail time. As stated, your license can be suspended, especially with drug related convictions.

The New Jersey Municipal Court system is somewhat disjointed. This is because almost every town and city in New Jersey has its own municipal court. Unfortunately, there is very little uniformity in the administration of these courts. The prosecutor’s are different in each court and the judges are as well.

For this reason it is important that you consult a lawyer who has experience going to the court that your case will be heard in. Lawyers at our Firm have appeared in hundreds of municipal court throughout New Jersey and understand the intricacies of most. We have begun to compile information about these Courts and will continue to provide this information to you via the listing you will see below; however we have not yet completed the list.

If you have been arrested and charged, or issued summons or ticket for a municipal court related offense, you can reach our lawyers 24/7 for a free informative consultation at 908-705-0500.

Before going to LS&P Lawyers, I consulted 3 immigration law firms and all of them told me they can't help me and will not be responsible for me being deported back to the Philippines. At LS&P Lawyers, the attorneys told me that I will get my green card and showed me the legal basis. I felt greatly relieved and a new hope emerged. I'm so thankful to God for this blessing and commend LS&P Lawyers because I am now a green card holder. Conrado B.
