Egg Harbor Township historically ranks second to Atlantic City annually in terms of criminal, DWI and traffic charges in Atlantic County. This makes perfect sense to our attorneys given how many appearances they make in Egg Harbor Township Municipal Court and the Atlantic County Superior Court on charges arising in the town. Individuals often forget that the township is the most populated municipality in the county, home to Atlantic City International Airport and several major roadways, namely, the Garden State Parkway, Atlantic Expressway, and N.J. Route 9. All of this translates into thousands of opportunities for members of the Egg Harbor Township Police Department and the New Jersey State Police to file charges for motor vehicle violations and criminal offenses.
