We Have the Experience with Manalapan Township Cases
With over 35 years of criminal trial experience our lawyers have handled literally thousands of these types of criminal and traffic cases. Our trial and litigation experience has paid dividends for our clients.
In many cases our careful evaluation of the police reports and interviews with witnesses have prompted judges to suppress evidence and forced prosecutors to outright dismiss cases. In other cases we have gone to trial and won.
In almost every other case without exception, where the evidence against our clients is strong, we have been able to effectively advocate on behalf of our clients to get pleas to lesser charges. These reduced plea offers are regularly to Manalapan Township Ordinances. This is ideal because township ordinances are legally considered crimes or criminal acts and do not carry the stigma of a criminal conviction.
In traffic court cases we have likewise been able to negotiate lesser fines and penalties in almost every case. For example, in most cases, we have been able to get careless driving, reckless driving, or speeding reduced to an unsafe driving violation which is a no point violation that carries only a fine.
Your record is something that you must vigilantly protect. With something as important as your record going it alone is simply not a good plan. We have the years of trial and negotiating experience you need to get the job done right.
