If you have been charged with a municipal court offense, from a vehicle violation to disorderly conduct, you don’t have to simply accept the consequences. An experienced lawyer can help you minimize the consequences.
At the law office of Perrotta, Fraser & Forrester, LLC, our lawyers bring considerable experience to people in New Jersey charged with a crime, including traffic violations and other offenses heard in the municipal courts. Each of our partners has more than 20 years of legal experience, and one of our attorneys is a former police officer, with a solid understanding of the methods law enforcement officials use to arrest or charge people with municipal crimes.
We aggressively protect the rights of people facing criminal charges, using our skill, knowledge, experience and resources to protect your constitutional rights.
We provide comprehensive counsel in all matters tried in municipal court, including:
Motor vehicle offenses such as speeding, careless driving or operating a vehicle without a proper license or without insurance
Disorderly persons offenses, including littering, vagrancy and public drunkenness
Our goal in all municipal prosecutions is always to minimize the penalties assessed. If you face charges involving a vehicle offense, we will seek to minimize or avoid any points on your record, as well as the suspension of your license.
Because of our considerable experience in municipal court matters, we know how to effectively use the process to get the outcome you seek. There is no jury in a municipal court case, so all interaction is between the prosecutor, the defense attorney and the judge. We can quickly assess the strengths and weaknesses of your case and determine whether a negotiated plea is in your best interests. We are well known and respected by prosecutors in the municipal courts and can often resolve your case beneficially without the cost of a trial.
