Municipal Court Criminal Defense in Morristown & Newton, NJ
If you have been arrested and charged with violating the law in New Jersey, chances are your case will be heard in Municipal Court. The Municipal Courts in New Jersey have limited “jurisdiction,” meaning that judges in those court may only try limited types of cases, such as motor vehicle and traffic offenses, minor crimes, and violations of municipal ordinances. A municipal court charge can, however, be costly. If you face prosecution in municipal court, we can help.
