Municipal Legal Matters Can Have A Major Impact
Many people assume that criminal offenses that go through municipal court do not carry serious consequences. This is a mistake. If you are facing charges for a traffic violation, drug possession or disorderly conduct here in New Jersey, it is imperative to speak with an attorney. It may seem frivolous to spend money on a Florham Park traffic ticket lawyer for a moving violation, but an attorney can help you try and avoid a mark on your permanent criminal record as well as substantial fines.
The attorneys at Johnson & Johnson, Attorneys At Law, have a wide-ranging background providing legal representation to clients who appear in municipal court. John M. Johnson‘s 40 years of experience include time as a municipal court judge, while Sharon E. Johnson also has a long history of working as a public defender in municipal court. Working with our clients, we strive to obtain a dismissal or reduction in charges associated with these violations.

Seemingly Minor Legal Issues Can Haunt You In The Future
Taken individually, these charges may seem more like an inconvenience, but the fact is that prosecutors build cases based on the history of the defendant. Traffic violations and DUIs are notable for increasing in severity when a repeat offender is involved, but this also holds true to all areas of criminal law. A strong legal defense allows you to move forward with your life in a positive and proactive way, and can pay dividends years later if there are more charges or another violation.
