The municipal courts have jurisdiction to decide legal matters, including motor vehicle and parking violations, traffic violations, non-indictable criminal offenses, municipal ordinance offenses, and fish and game offenses. (N.J.S.A. 2B:12-17 et seq.) At Falk Flotteron & Davidson, we specialize in helping our clients navigate the municipal court system resulting in successful plea deals or verdicts.
How We Help You in Municipal Court
While the municipal court is considered a court of lower jurisdiction, the charges brought against you can be serious and result in significant penalties. This can lead to heavy fines, yearly motor vehicle surcharges, and points on your license. If you are found guilty of committing certain offenses, your license may be suspended or revoked, and in some cases, you could be sentenced to jail time. Our attorneys will negotiate with the municipal court prosecutor to downgrade the charges brought against you and reduce the penalties to achieve the best result. If the charges cannot be downgraded, we will take your matter to trial and litigate on your behalf before the court.
