Scotch Plains NJ Criminal Attorney

Although Scotch Plains is near the top of municipalities in Union County in terms of affluence, that does not make it immune from criminal offenses, DWI and serious motor vehicle tickets. Approximately 3,500 motorists are issued summonses for driving while suspended, reckless driving, possession of cds in a motor vehicle, driving without insurance, leaving the scene of an accident and other moving traffic violations annually. The Scotch Plains Municipal Court also processes close to 500 criminal charges despite the township having only 23,510 residents and measuring 9.05 square miles. If you were charged with simple assault, harassment, marijuana possession, disorderly conduct or another offense, an attorney at the Law Offices of Jonathan F. Marshall has the tools to help you.

Municipal Courts in New Jersey have limited jurisdiction to decide traffic and motor vehicle charges, ordinance violations and disorderly person offenses. Your case will therefore be heard in Scotch Plains Municipal Court if it falls within one of these categories. An arrest for an indictable crime of the first degree, second degree, third degree or fourth degree in Scotch Plains is automatically referred to the Union County Superior Court Criminal Division in Elizabeth.

A broad range of offenses fall within this category such as cocaine possession, distribution of cds, burglary, terroristic threats and aggravated assault to name a few. All restraining order hearings stemming from incidents of domestic violence are also referred to the Superior Court.

Scotch Plains Criminal Lawyer

Scotch Plains is served by major roadways like N.J. Route 28 and U.S. Route 22 which yield a higher percentage of the charges in the municipality by virtue of the high volume of traffic. Whether you were stopped in this context or encountered the Scotch Plains Police Department in some other manner, you need to take your offense seriously. A conviction in your case could very well result in a compromise of your driving privileges (i.e suspension or revocation), considerable fines and even jail. Hiring a skilled lawyer to defend your matter is definitely a major step you can take to insure that you are not negatively impacted. The attorneys on the defense team of the Marshall Law Firm are well suited to represent you. We are highly experienced criminal defense lawyers who have handled thousands of cases just like yours over the last 25 or so years.
