Criminal Defense Lawyer & Former Prosecutor
Highlands, New Jersey gets its name from its geography. It sits on high on bluffs which overlook both the Atlantic Ocean and nearby Sandy Hook peninsula. The borough has also gained notoriety of late as the home town of film maker Kevin Smith, even being featured as the setting for some of his movies. However, this is not just a sleepy fishermen’s town. Indeed, Highlands has many noted seafood restaurants and bars where locals and vacationers like to “let loose.” Surely, it is no surprise that people can get themselves into trouble under these circumstances.

Highlands Municipal Court
The Borough of Highlands Municipal Court is limited by law in what may come before it. This means that the matters are primarily of a misdemeanor nature. Still, a conviction for something like a DWI, traffic violation, or municipal ordinance violation, can cause you a myriad of problems. Just because a charge might not technically be a criminal offense does not mean that you are not subject to prison-time or a permanent record. Given the poor job market, getting charged with any of the following offenses could keep an employer from hiring you: Possession of Drugs, including Marijuana, Driving Under the Influence, Driving While Intoxicated, Shoplifting, Noise Violations, Disorderly Conduct, Assault, Criminal Mischief, Drinking in Public, Underage Drinking, etc. Our criminal defense attorneys represent clients for the above charges quite often in Highlands. If you or someone you care about is looking at one of these violations, give our offices a call at your earliest convenience.
The Highlands Municipal Court is at 171 Bay Avenue, Highlands, New Jersey 07732. The Judge is the Hon. Peter Locascio, and the Court Administrator is Betty Searcy. The Prosecutor is James N. Butler, Jr. and the Public Defender is Tomas Smith III. There is more information at http://www.highlandsnj.us/index.html.
