South Jersey Municipal Court Lawyer

Municipal Court LawFor those living in South Jersey, a municipal court lawyer is a valuable and essential legal advocate. The municipal courts are where the state of New Jersey adjudicates the majority of its legal business. The municipal courts are courts with limited jurisdiction. They are where cases involving motor vehicle and parking tickets are heard, as well as minor criminal offenses such as being charged with writing bad checks or simple assault. Most municipalities have their own courts, and those courts are only able to hear cases that involve violations that have occurred within the municipality’s boundaries. If you have been charged with having committed a crime, your case may begin in municipal court and eventually be transferred over to the more superior county courthouse. If you are facing charges that require you to appear before a municipal court, then call the South Jersey municipal court lawyers at the law offices of Richard M. Josselson for dedicated, skilled legal representation.

As is true in other courts, when you are appearing as a defendant in a municipal court in South Jersey you are presumed innocent until proven guilty. You also have the right to retain an attorney to represent you and defend you against any charges that you are facing. Richard M. Josselson is an experienced attorney who has represented clients in municipal court cases throughout the state of New Jersey over the past 39 years. He has served as the public defender for the Township of Cherry hill for the past 23 years, and as a result he has earned a reputation with court administrators and personnel that works to the benefit of his clients. If you need help with a criminal case, a traffic matter, or any other type of case to be heard in a South Jersey municipal court, his knowledge of the law and his dedication to ensuring that his clients’ legal rights are protected will ensure that your case will be handled with a personal attention to details and a high level of professionalism.

Municipal court matters include a wide range of charges. At the Law Office of Richard M. Josselson we have represented clients in cases such as:

  • DWI/DUI
  • Speeding tickets
  • Careless driving tickets
  • Moving violations
  • Citations for driving without insurance
  • Driving on a suspended license
  • Possession of marijuana or controlled drugs
  • Building code violations
  • Barking dog complaints

In many cases, people charged with these types of cases believe that they do not need an attorney and are able to represent themselves, but doing so is often a mistake. Though those who have been charged often believe that it is easier to simply pay a fine and move on with their lives, in doing so they are often unaware that they have confessed guilt. This can have serious consequences ranging from increased insurance premiums to points adding up to a suspension of your driver’s license. For legal advice and representation that will provide you with the best possible outcome, contact the South Jersey municipal court lawyer at the Law Office of Richard M. Josselson.
