Essex County NJ Criminal Defense Attorney

With Offices in Verona and Long Beach Island, NJ

The New Jersey Justice System conducts its regular activities in Municipal and Superior Courts which are dispersed across the State and tasked with adjudicating a vast array of criminal and traffic matters, ranging from indictable felonies such as robbery and aggravated assault to low-level criminal offenses such as simple assault and disorderly conduct. When charged with a crime classified as a disorderly persons offense or petty disorderly persons offense (similar to a misdemeanor), you will likely be required to appear in the Municipal Court associated with the municipality in which the alleged offense occurred. Similarly, when charged with DWI or DUI, your case will be heard in the local Municipal Court in the town where you were arrested. On the other hand, when facing charges for an indictable offense (a first, second, third, or fourth degree crime), your case will be forwarded to the Superior Court in the county in which the alleged offense occurred. Finally, if you are a minor, your juvenile case may be transferred to the Family Division of the Superior Court in the county in which you reside.

The significance of the specific court where your case is decided cannot be underestimated, as it dictates the manner in which your case is resolved (i.e. trial by jury or before a judge), confines the avenues that may be available to you as alternatives to conviction (i.e. diversionary programs such as conditional discharge, conditional dismissal, and Pre-Trial Intervention), and determines the potential penalties that may be imposed if you are convicted (i.e. community service, fines, probation, and/or a term of incarceration). Perhaps the most important decision that you make when seeking to address a criminal or motor vehicle matter in a New Jersey court is the legal representative who will serve as your guide and advocate throughout the adjudication process. An attorney who frequently appears in the court where your case will be held can prove indispensable when determining your fate.
