Municipal Court Charges Attorney Camden NJ

Experienced Criminal Defense Lawyer Fights Municipal Charges for Clients in Camden County and Throughout South Jersey

Some people don’t take municipal courts seriously and, therefore, often try to “go it alone.” When facing serious charges, including driving while intoxicated (DWI), assault or harassment charges, or local law violations such as barking dogs or disturbing the peace, many people show up in court without legal representation. Unfortunately, they soon find out they’ve made a costly mistake. You could be facing six months in jail, as well as high fines.

Have you been charged with any of the following:

  • Traffic offenses (including reckless driving, driving with a suspended or revoked license)
  • Disorderly persons
  • Distracted driving (texting or using a cell phone while driving)
  • Leaving the scene of an accident
  • Simple assault, harassment or terroristic threats
  • Writing bad checks on bank accounts with insufficient funds
  • Municipal ordinance violations such as disturbing the peace, barking dogs or building code violations
  • Neighborhood disputes
  • Shoplifting
