Evesham NJ Criminal Lawyer
Evesham ranks near the top every year when it comes to criminal and traffic offenses issued in Burlington County. Its municipal court probably hears the most DWI, simple assault, harassment, disorderly conduct, marijuana possession and other disorderly persons offenses annually. A misdemeanor criminal charge like these can have serious ramifications and the situation only gets worse if an arrest results in the filing of an indictable crime, for example, possession of heroin and cocaine, aggravated assault, and shoplifting $200 or more in merchandise. All of these violations need to be taken seriously, even those handled exclusively in municipal court, as a criminal record and other penalties result from a conviction. At our Mt. Laurel law firm, the Law Offices of Jonathan F. Marshall, we have a track record that includes thousands of cases just like yours that have been successfully handled in Evesham and elsewhere in New Jersey. If you would like to discuss the specifics of your offense with an lawyer on our staff, call us anytime of day or night at 856-234-8900 for a free consultation.
