Our Experience with Colts Neck Township Municipal Court Cases
Contrary to what most people think, you do not have to plead guilty to the initial charges even if you may have violated the law. In almost all cases, with very few exceptions, we have negotiated pleas to less serious charges that carry greatly reduced penalties.
A common example in traffic cases is where our client has been issued a summons for careless driving, reckless driving, or speeding. In these cases, we have been able to convince the Colts Neck Township municipal Prosecutor to offer a plea to unsafe driving, which is a no-point violation that carries only a fine.
Similarly, in criminal cases we have been able to negotiate pleas to Colts Neck Township Ordinances that are non-criminal offenses. A plea to a non-criminal Colts Neck Township Municipal Ordinance will simply result in a fine, and, more importantly, protect you from the consequences of a criminal record.
With over 35 years of criminal trial experience our lawyers have handled literally thousands of these types of criminal and traffic cases. In cases where our clients have been innocent or the evidence is weak, we have gone to trial and won. In other cases, we have avoided a trial all together by reviewing the police reports, investigating the case, and presenting the Colts Neck Prosecutor with evidence that results in a dismissal. On numerous occasions, our attorneys have been able to suppress the evidence seized in the case after filing a motion and establishing that the police search of a client was unconstitutional.
