Former Prosecutors – We Have The Experience with Manasquan Cases
Our lawyers have over 30 years of criminal trial experience and have handled literally thousands of these type of criminal and traffic cases. Our attorneys have repeatedly succeeded in having many criminal and traffic cases dismissed after a careful review of the case and negotiation with the municipal prosecutor.
Where the evidence against our client’s is strong, we are often able to convince the prosecutor to amend the criminal charges to non-criminal offenses called “Borough Ordinance” violations. Each town has its own separate town or borough ordinances and Manasquan is no exception.
A plea to a Borough ordinance violation will allow you to avoid a criminal record and all of the consequences that go along with a criminal conviction. For example, a simple assault charge signed by the police after a domestic dispute can often times be amended to the non-criminal borough ordinance of “Disturbing the Peace.”
