Millburn New Jersey Municipal Court maintains a healthy volume of traffic and criminal complaints on its docket. Some fairly busy roadways (i.e. Rt 24) provide local and state law enforcement with opportunity to issues a number of traffic tickets each day. Speeding, DWI, driving while suspended, reckless driving, careless driving, and driving with no insurance are some of the more common motor vehicle violations, and I have represented many clients in the Millburn Municipal Court facing traffic related offenses.
In addition, the Short Hills Mall continues to generate many shoplifting charges each year. Those arrested and charged with shoplifting in the Short Hills Mall will typically have the case heard in the Millburn Municipal Court. Shoplifting complaints are probably the most prevalent criminal complaint issued by the police in this Essex County municipality, but there are also other common disorderly persons complaints which fall under the jurisdiction of this court. In addition to defending those charged with shoplifting crimes, I have defended those charged with a variety of criminal offenses in Millburn NJ , including harassment, disorderly conduct, possession of less than 50 grams of marijuana, and simple assault.
