Why would I appear in New Providence Municipal Court?
New Providence municipal court is limited to presiding over disorderly persons cases, DWI cases, and traffic infractions. Common offenses and infractions found on the court docket include underage drinking, possession of drug paraphernalia, disorderly conduct, speeding, reckless or careless driving, and driving while suspended. While these may not seem like very serious crimes, the sentences for a guilty verdict can be very harsh. If you are found guilty, you could be facing a large sum of fines, loss of driving privileges, a permanent criminal record, and up to six months in the county jail. To avoid the worst of these penalties, it is wise to hire a qualified attorney who has experience defending these charges.

About New Providence
New Providence is a large borough of 11,171 on the northwestern edge of Union County. It has very low violent and property crime rates, due to the large amount of wealthy professionals and other executives which call New Providence home. However, it is close to Interstate 78, the Garden State Parkway, and the New Jersey Turnpike, which leads to a ton of traffic violations and tickets. Also, 27.8% of the population is less than 18, so disorderly persons offenses commonly associated with teens occur. Common offenses are possession of less than 50 grams of marijuana, underage drinking, simple assault, and criminal mischief.
