Toms River Defense Lawyers With Real-life Experience

If you face criminal charges in the Toms River area of New Jersey, the Law Offices of Jonathan F. Marshall can assist you with a legal team that was hand-selected specifically for the depth of the attorneys’ extensive experience in the Garden State. Our law firm’s nine attorneys have worked for decades as prosecutors and public defenders in local courtrooms across New Jersey. We know how New Jersey criminal law is actually applied to criminal cases in court — as well as what strategies can help before cases go to court.

We know, from having been in courtrooms throughout the state for thousands of cases, that too many New Jersey residents face criminal charges without proper legal representation. Too often, people are found guilty or plead guilty and suffer harsh sentences and tarnished records that could have been avoided. It doesn’t have to happen to you.

At the Law Offices of Jonathan F. Marshall, we hold dear the principles that every defendant has a constitutional right to a robust legal defense, and that the prosecution must prove its case before a guilty verdict is possible. We question the facts of each case at every turn, and our firm has the resources to make sure every potential defense strategy is fully explored. Contact us about putting an experienced and aggressive team of Toms River criminal defense attorneys on your side today.

"Me and my family candidly had no experience with criminal lawyers. We were referred to three lawyers and picked Jonathan to defend my case. This is the best move we could have made as Jonathan got us a result that was outstanding. He also communicated with us in an understanding manner, put the time into the case and was also definitely skilled in his profession."

Experience Guiding You Through the N.J. Criminal Process

We recognize that residents of Toms River, Lakewood, Brick, Jackson, Manchester or other townships and boroughs of Ocean County, N.J., who turn to the Law Offices of Jonathan F. Marshall for help are often coming into contact with the N.J. Courts for the first time. We understand their anxiety and confusion about a process that could totally upend their or their loved one’s lives.

However, we want you to understand that New Jersey laws and courts do dispense justice when you have proper legal representation on your side. Prosecutors have a duty to seek guilty verdicts, but they have to prove their cases to succeed. When the facts do not support a case, they know it — and we do, too.

Our Toms River criminal defense attorneys bring 100 years of combined experience with New Jersey criminal law to each case, and we know how a case should play out as well as the prosecutor handling it does. We also understand where New Jersey statutes allow prosecutors to pursue downgraded charges or lighter sentences in light of the facts of the case, or to do what’s right for a first-time offender or someone who needs help, not punishment.

More importantly, Ocean County prosecutors know our attorneys and will consider the alternatives we suggest to the original charges filed or maximum sentences the law provides but does not require. They listen to us because they have worked with us here in Toms River or in other municipal and county courts in New Jersey.

As your Toms River criminal defense lawyers, our primary objective is the most favorable outcome available for you. We will make sure you are informed about the status your case, as well as the long-term considerations you need to keep in mind as we decide together how to defend you. If applicable, we will explain the pros and cons of New Jersey’s diversionary programs, which include Pre-Trial Intervention (PTI), Drug Court and Conditional Discharge, and we will discuss whether pursuing a plea bargain is best for you.

We Are Toms River Defense Lawyers

Here on the Jersey Shore, the attorneys at the Law Offices of Jonathan Marshall serve residents of Toms River and greater Ocean County when they come into conflict with the law. Our attorneys offer broad legal knowledge developed from decades of work in courtrooms across New Jersey, as well as the local perspective and knowledge required to navigate local courts.

The New Jersey criminal process categorizes minor offenses as “disorderly persons offenses” or “petty disorderly persons offenses,” which are heard in municipal courts located where charges were filed. More serious charges are “indicatable offenses” heard in the local county Superior Court. Courtrooms of the United States District Court for the District of New Jersey in Trenton, Camden and Newark hear federal cases.

Toms River and Ocean County Courts

Municipal courts in New Jersey are known as courts of limited jurisdiction, responsible for motor vehicle and parking tickets, minor criminal offenses, municipal ordinance violations, and other minor offenses. Serious criminal cases, such as for assault, robbery or auto theft, may initially be filed in Toms River Municipal Court or in another local municipality, but will be transferred to the Ocean County Superior Court.
