Elizabeth NJ Criminal Defense Lawyers
Unlike any other municipality in Union County, the City of Elizabeth has two different court systems in which a criminal case can processed. The Elizabeth Municipal Court is where disorderly persons offenses like simple assault are litigated, as well as traffic charges, for example, driving while intoxicated (“DWI”). The city also happens to be the location where all indictable crimes, as well as restraining orders, are handled in Union County. An attorney can prove invaluable in both of these court systems, especially highly credentialed ones like those at The Law Offices of Jonathan F. Marshall. We are former prosecutors and a defense team with over 100 years of combined experience. We have successfully defended an immeasurable number of individuals in Elizabeth over the years and will use our best efforts to achieve a similar outcome for you.
