Central New Jersey Municipal Court Defense Attorney
Whether you received a traffic ticket, were pulled over for a DUI, have been charged with a drug offense or are facing any other disorderly persons offense, you have rights.
In New Jersey, if you receive a ticket for any type of moving violation, you stand to receive points on your license in addition to a fine. An attorney experienced with municipal court defense may be able to highlight potential weaknesses in the case against you and arrange a plea agreement with the municipal prosecutor to reduce or even eliminate the imposition of points and fines.
New Jersey is very serious about DUIs. DUIs are one of the few offenses in New Jersey that prosecutors are generally not allowed to dismiss as part of plea bargains, unless they are provided with compelling evidence that the DUI might not be proved at a trial. Nevertheless, police are required to comply with a very particular set of rules and procedures when handling DUI cases, and so it is critical to obtain and review all of the documentation and even videotapes that the State might use against you to determine whether they can meet their burden of proof. In certain cases, experts can be retained to further challenge the State’s evidence. Even in cases in which the underlying DUI cannot be dismissed, an experienced municipal court attorney may be able to reduce or even eliminate the other offenses you were charged with as part of the DUI.
In New Jersey, if you have never been convicted of any prior drug offenses, you may be eligible for a conditional discharge, which could result in the ultimate dismissal of the charges against you. Even if a conditional discharge may not be available, an experienced municipal court attorney can assess the circumstances of your case, and can help you determine whether and to what extent the charges brought against you and the evidence produced by the State can be challenged, to provide you with a more favorable outcome.
