New Jersey Municipal Court Lawyers with an Advantage
The Municipal Courts of New Jersey may well be considered the most important courts in our judiciary system as it serves the largest volume of citizenry of this State. Municipal Court, sometimes referred to as traffic court, is the lowest level court in the New Jersey, but its seriousness should not be underestimated as penalties can actually, in some cases, be greater than those in Superior Court. Matters include motor vehicle violations and minor criminal offenses such as simple assault, domestic violence, drug possession, and harassment.
At CLDDS, we excel at successfully defending our clients in Municipal Court matters. Our attorneys are experienced trial lawyers, fully prepared to provide our clients with sound counsel and powerful advocacy.
We are prepared to handle a wide range of Municipal Court matters including:
- Traffic Violations
- Assault Charges
- Simple and Aggravated Assault
- Domestic Violence
- Drug Possession
- Driving Under the Influence (DUI)
- Driving While Intoxicated (DWI)
- Motor Vehicle Violations
Our attorneys seek to obtain the very best possible results for our clients. We aggressively defend our clients with the aim of avoiding conviction. Frequently, we are able to successfully challenge the basis for the issuance of the traffic summons or arrest. In others, where the prosecution’s case is strong, we use our experience to negotiate an advantageous plea agreement.
When a new client comes to us after a DUI arrest, speeding ticket, or disorderly conduct charge, we spend the time necessary to discover all facts that will lead to an effective defense for that person. If a case can be dismissed in traffic court for any reason, we work hard to achieve that result. When a “guilty” plea is the only option, we take advantage of any mitigating circumstances that will help us negotiate a favorable plea bargain for our client.
We are always aware of the need to give clients the best value for the fees they will pay. We present realistic options along with insightful advice born of our experience and knowledge of the law.
