Our Experienced Municipal Court Attorneys Serve All Of Somerset County

The municipal courts in Somerset County possess limited jurisdiction to handle the types of cases previously described. They may also preside over arraignments of first, second, third and fourth degree crimes. Once these initial appearances are completed, however, all proceeds are conducted at the Somerset County Courthouse located at 20 North Bridge Street, Somerville, New Jersey 08876-1262. Our firm is comprised of several former prosecutors and other skilled defense lawyers that make up a team of eight (8). We routinely appear in Somerset County municipal courts including:

Although the county has a relatively low volume of serious crime, there is a substantial amount of municipal court cases. For example, the Bridgewater, Bernards Township, Franklin, Hillsbough, Branchburg, and Warren all hear over five thousand motor vehicle violations annually, including driving while intoxicated. The number of criminal charges are also brisk in these and the other courts in this venue. This probably explains whey our attorneys appear in those courts so frequently.

Just because you were arrested or charged with a disorderly persons offense, the equivalent of a misdemeanor, that does not mean that you do not have risk exposure without proper presentation. Most cases falling within this grade of offense can result in sizable financial consequences and up to six (6) months in the county jail. A serious traffic or motor vehicle charge, not just a DWI, can also result in wide reaching ramifications. For example, driving with a revoked license, leaving the scene of an accident, and operating without insurance can all result in jail. It is never wise to attempt to defend a serious traffic violation or criminal offense without sound representation. A lawyer at our firm is available now to discuss how we can help you handle your charge. Call us 24/7 at 908-722-1011.
