Defense in Municipal Court Cases
Municipal courts in New Jersey hear any number of misdemeanor and non-criminal cases. However, just because you haven’t been charged with a crime doesn’t mean the consequences for a conviction aren’t serious. If you’re appearing before a municipal court, experienced Newark defense lawyer Anthony Carbone can provide the aggressive representation you need.
Cases that appear before a municipal court include:
- Speeding, running a red light, and other traffic infractions
- Reckless driving
- Driving with a suspended license
- Not having state-required car insurance
- Disorderly conduct
- Simple assault and other minor offenses similar to but less severe than criminal charges
New Jersey courts take these and other municipal matters very seriously. For example, certain traffic infractions result in lost points from your driver’s license; accrue enough points through multiple offenses, and you face the suspension or even loss of your license. In extreme cases, someone convicted of a disorderly person charge could face jail time.
For more than 20 years, Mr. Carbone has served as the defense attorney for many clients facing serious charges in municipal and criminal court. He will assess the case against you and build a strong defense on your behalf that forcefully questions the evidence.
