New Brunswick Criminal & Traffic Offenses

New Brunswick Defense Lawyer

Former Prosecutor

Office Location: 75 Paterson Avenue, New Brunswick, NJ 08901

New Brunswick is a small New Jersey City which is the home of Rutgers University and is literally packed with business and industry. The City has a population in excess of 50,000 and is a hub for commerce with significant traffic arteries leading to its downtown including US Highway 1, State Highway Route 18, the New Jersey Turnpike, and State Highway Route 27. Given the concentration of activity in New Brunswick, conflicts and even arrests sometimes occur. If you find yourself in such a situation, the criminal defense lawyers at our New Brunswick law firm, the Law Offices of Jonathan F. Marshall have the expertise to insure that you are provided the best opportunity to avoid a conviction. Every criminal defense lawyer at our law office routinely appears in New Brunswick Municipal Court and is fully familiar with the Court. We defend individuals charged or arrested in New Brunswick with criminal and traffic offense such as DWI (driving while intoxicated), Possession of Marijuana, Drugs & Drug Paraphernalia, Driving While Suspended or Revoked, Driving Without Insurance, and alcohol related offenses like Disorderly Conduct, Resisting Arrest, Criminal Mischief, Simple Assault and Drinking Underage. Please feel free to contact our office 24/7 to speak to one of our defense attorneys if you have received a summons or been arrested. Initial consultations with an attorney are always without charge.

New Brunswick DWI Charge

A conviction for DWI in New Jersey carries significant consequences under N.J.S.A. 39:4-50 and the Judges in New Brunswick Municipal Court enforce the law as written. It is therefore important that you enlist a knowledgeable defense lawyer if you were issued a summons for DWI in New Brunswick. A first offense for DWI carriers 3 months to 1 year loss of license and numerous penalties including a severe escalation in your car insurance premiums and a $3,000 surcharge payable to the New Jersey Division of Motor Vehicles. If you are convicted of a second or third offense of DWI in New Brunswick, the penalties only get worse and include a mandatory sentence of six (6) months in jail for a third offense. Our lawyers are always happy to discuss DWI charges in depth free of charge.

New Brunswick Possession of Marijuana, Drugs & Drug Paraphernalia

No one wants a drug or paraphernalia conviction on their record and, in many cases, there is no reason for someone to be faced with this outcome. Our attorneys are frequently able to avoid a conviction for possession of marijuana, some other drug, or drug paraphernalia, in New Brunswick Municipal Court. A conviction for possession of marijuana, an illegal drug or drug paraphernalia, not only gives rise to a criminal record but also calls for a license suspension of six (6) months. We are often, however, able to avoid these negative consequences so you should not hesitate to take advantage of a free initial consultation with one of our lawyers if you have been charged or arrested for possession of drugs, marijuana, or paraphernalia in New Brunswick.

New Brunswick Driving While Suspended or Revoked Ticket

It is unfortunate that our lawyers repeatedly receive telephone calls from individuals facing jail time for a second or subsequent offense for driving while suspended or revoked as we find that this is a very defensible charge in the first instance. N.J.S.A. 39:3-40 mandates additional license suspension for driving while suspended or revoked and New Brunswick’s police department engages in significant enforcement of this statute, particularly, given the access of NJ Division of Motor Vehicle information via police car computers. If you were arrested or charged with driving on a suspended license or license that was previously revoked in New Brunswick, NJ, please do not expose yourself to the snowball effect of a conviction. Our lawyers are happy to assisted you.

New Brunswick Driving Without Insurance Summons

Our lawyers find the incident of driving without insurance or while uninsured to be higher than usual in New Brunswick than elsewhere. This may be a function of the high volume of traffic, concentration of motor vehicles, or due to other factors present in New Brunswick. Irrespective, a summons or ticket for driving while uninsured or without insurance may typically be defeated by a skilled lawyer. No one should have their license suspended for a year for a first offense of driving without insurance under N.J.S.A. 39:6B-2, and this usually does not occur when our lawyers are representing someone in New Brunswick on this charge.

New Brunswick Alcohol Related Offenses: Disorderly Conduct, Resisting Arrest, Criminal Mischief, Simple Assault and Drinking Underage

There are many bars and activities involving alcohol in New Brunswick and this can sometimes lead to problems with the police and other individuals. Alcohol is often a common route when someone is arrested or charged with Simple Assault, Disorderly Conduct, Resisting Arrest, Criminal Mischief, and certainly Drinking Underage. If you or a loved one has been charged or arrested for a disorderly persons offense, there is no need to risk a criminal record as our attorneys are customarily successful in obtaining dismissal and/or a downgrade of these charges to a municipal ordinance violation which negates a criminal record.
