The Union County Superior Court is located at 2 Broad St. in Elizabeth New Jersey. The Superior Court has jurisdiction over all indictable offenses. Indictable offenses are the same as felony charges; except that you have the right to a grand jury in New Jersey, a body of individuals who sits to determine if the charges and allegations are sufficient for the case to continue. A grand jury is not a trial, and defendant participation is unusual, but not out of the questions.

There are several judges that preside over criminal cases in the Superior Court. They are with location:

  • Judge Robert J. Mega, P.J.S.C. , Annex, 4th Floor
  • Regina Caulfield, J.S.C., Annex, 2nd Floor
  • Joseph P. Donohue, J.S.C., Annex, 3rd Floor
  • Frederic R. McDaniel, J.S.C., Annex 2nd Floor
  • Scott J. Moynihan, J.S.C. Annex, 4th Floor

In addition, Judge Gross is the presiding judge of the Union County Municipal Courts and takes care of the first appearance calendar.
