Municipal Court Violations

The law firm of Puff & Cockerill has over 40 years of experience in representing individuals charged with municipal court violations such as: traffic violations, drug violations and other minor criminal offenses in the municipal courts of the State of New Jersey.  Our firm and attorneys handle any and all municipal court violations.

Why You Need a Lawyer For Municipal Court Offenses

As with any legal matter, being represented by a knowledgeable and experienced attorney is crucial in making sure your rights and privileges are adequately protected. The Municipal Court system is complex and crowded. Our attorneys can help ensure that you receive proper legal representation, regardless of the size of the violation.

There are several reasons why no one should ever go to a municipal court hearing without the assistance of an attorney.

First, you should understand that the municipal courts of the State of New Jersey hear more cases than any other court in our judicial system. Consequently, municipal courts handle a higher volume of cases in short periods. Having a knowledgeable and seasoned attorney who will be able to work the legal technicalities of the State statutory code and case law, so as to have charges dismissed and/or downgraded, saving the client a great deal in time, expense and aggravation, is beneficial.

Secondly, any mishandling of a municipal court charge can result in hundreds, if not thousands of dollars of unnecessary fines and costs, points on one’s driver’s license (again resulting in additional costs for auto insurance premiums), the loss of one’s driving privileges and the loss of one’s freedom.

If you live out of state but are cited for a violation while in New Jersey, our firm can help resolve your case, often without having you appear in court.
