Protecting Your Rights In Municipal Court Offenses

If you have been charged with a misdemeanor or municipal court offense in New Jersey, you deserve a lawyer who will aggressively and effectively defend your rights. In addition, defendants who have an attorney on their side are often treated better throughout the process.

At the Law Office of David A. Semanchik, we defend individuals against municipal court offenses, also called disorderly persons offenses. We are extremely knowledgeable about a wide range of criminal defense matters, and our New Jersey law firm can work to help minimize or eliminate the consequences of your criminal charge.

Strong Defense Against a Wide Range of Charges

While indictable offenses or felonies are tried in superior court, offenses with less severe penalties are heard in municipal court and may include:

  • DUI/DWIs
  • Speeding
  • Driving with a suspended driver's license
  • Other traffic violations
  • Shoplifting
  • Harassment
  • Disorderly conduct
  • Criminal mischief
  • Trespassing
  • Resisting arrest
  • Marijuana possession
  • Possession of drug paraphernalia

No matter what charge you are facing, it is in your best interest to engage the help of a local criminal defense lawyer who knows the prosecutor and is skilled at negotiating plea bargains, if necessary.
