Springfield Municipal Court
Springfield NJ Criminal Attorneys
Although Springfield Township may best be known as the home of Baltusrol Golf Club, the town is actually a vibrant community measuring over 5 square miles, with 15,817 residents. With major highways like Interstate 78 and US Route 22, Springfield also has a large influx of non-resident traffic as well. If you were stopped on a roadway in Springfield or came in contact with the Springfield NJ Police by any other means, you probably were issued a criminal or traffic violation. This would not be surprising in view of the fact that almost 18,000 complaints are issued in the town every year. While most of these violations are heard in the Springfield Municipal Court, more serious criminal cases, those involving indictable crimes of the first, second, third, and fourth degree will be heard at Central Judicial Processing at the Union County Superior Court.

Criminal & Traffic Charges in Springfield Municipal Court
If your offense stems from a motor vehicle stop and/or car search, the greatest probability is that your encountered with police was on Interstate 78 or US Route 22, although there is also significant police activity on local roadways like Morris Avenue, Mountain Avenue and Springfield Avenue. Non-automobile related cases including simple assault, harassment, disorderly conduct and shoplifting charges, can arise just about anywhere in the municipality. When these charges fall within the grade of a disorderly persons offense, they fall under the jurisdiction of the Springfield Municipal Court, The same is true for every motor vehicle summons or ticket issued within the borders of the township, for example, those for speeding, driving while suspended, possession of cds in a motor vehicle, driving without insurance and the like. When someone is charged with a fourth degree crime or higher (e.g. first degree, second degree or third degree), for example, drug possession (other than 50 grams or less of marijuana), burglary or aggravated assault, the case falls outside the authority of the Springfield Municipal Court. If you are charged with such an offense, your matter will be sent to the Union County Superior Court in Elizabeth for resolution.
