WE ARE SOMERSET DEFENSE LAWYERS
Our skilled attorneys serve residents of Somerville, Somerset County, and surrounding areas when they are facing criminal matters, no matter how serious or seemingly minor. With decades of experience successfully arguing cases in courtrooms across New Jersey, our lawyers bring a wealth of knowledge and local perspective to our clients’ cases.
In New Jersey, minor offenses are categorized as “disorderly persons offenses” or “petty disorderly persons offenses.” These cases are heard in municipal courts located wherever the charges were filed. More serious charges, referred to as “indictable offenses” and graded as a first degree, second degree, third degree or fourth degree, are heard in County Superior Courts. Federal cases are heard in United States District Courthouses in Trenton, Camden, and Newark.
SOMERSET COUNTY COURTS
In New Jersey, municipal courts have limited jurisdiction, dealing with motor vehicle and parking tickets, municipal ordinance violations, minor criminal offenses, and other minor offenses. More serious criminal cases are heard in the Somerset County Superior Court.
