New Jersey Municipal Court Defense
The law office of Weinstock Levin represents clients in municipal courts throughout New Jersey. Many traffic and criminal cases are tried in municipal court. You need experienced representation to protect your rights. One of our experienced attorneys will work with you to reach a fair result.
Even a seemingly minor citation or criminal charge can have significant consequences if it ends up on your record. We will represent you in any matter before a municipal judge, including:
- Speeding and other moving violations
- Driving while intoxicated (DWI)
- Disorderly conduct and petty disorderly conduct
- Municipal ordinance violations, such as a complaint about a barking dog or a building code violation
- Fish and game violations
Besides these cases, many criminal cases begin as complaints in municipal court after an arrest by city police. We have represented clients in hearings at municipal courts across New Jersey, including in Atlantic City, Jersey City and Newark.
Why Having A Defense Attorney In Municipal Court Matters
Some people choose to represent themselves in municipal court. They may think that defense attorneys do not take “minor” cases, or that they will save on legal fees. This is a mistake. Even in a relatively simple case, there are procedures and deadlines you may not realize. A mistake can take away your ability to defend yourself and could result in an expensive fine. If you are found guilty of DWI or a moving violation, you will get points on your driver’s license and may even lose your license to suspension.
Instead of trying to take care of the charges yourself, let one of our lawyers handle it. We will advise you of your options and make sure you get the best possible outcome. We are often able to settle out of court to keep you out of jail and minimize the impact on your life. Contact us a soon as possible.
