Our main office is located in the center of Cranford and I have ties going back 37 years to the town. I am specially trained in DWI defense, and represent those charged and/or arrested for all traffic and criminal charges.
The Cranford Municipal Court has jurisdiction over Title 39 traffic offenses and disorderly persons (misdemeanor) crimes. Some of the more common traffic related charges heard in the court are speeding, reckless driving, driving while license suspended or revoked, driving an uninsured vehicle or driving without insurance, driving without a license, careless driving, etc. Depending upon the nature of the offense, you can face the imposition of motor vehicle points, loss of license, jail time, or all three. For information regarding specific charges, please search my site and I am certain you will find helpful information. Alternatively, you can call the number above for a free 24 hr consultation with me.
The municipal court also has jurisdiction over disorderly persons violations. These include crimes such as simple assault, disorderly conduct, shoplifting, obstruction of justice, possession of less than 50 grams of marijuana, possession of drug paraphernalia, harassment and many domestic violence related crimes.
More serious crimes are called indictable offenses and they are heard in the Superior Court in Elizabeth. Examples of these types of offenses are possession of cocaine or heroin, possession of non prescribed prescription pills, aggravated assault, gun or weapons offenses, eluding, resisting arrest, etc.
As stated my site contains a large amount of information. However, the best way to get information is to contact a local lawyer who can provide an immediate free consultation. When you call, you will speak to me. You will not be directed to an answering service. Remember, with criminal offenses, and some serious traffic violations (DWI), early preparation is important. Waiting until the day before court to speak with a lawyer is not the best decision you can make.
I am available for weekend appointments, offer payment plans, and accept all credit cards.
