Spring Lake Municipal Court

If you have been charged with a Disorderly Persons Criminal offense or a Petty Disorderly Persons offense, often referred to in other states as a misdemeanor, you need an experienced defense attorney to effectively guide you through the municipal court process. Although charges handled in municipal courts are referred to as “Disorderly Persons Offenses,” they are still criminal offenses with lasting consequences if you are convicted.

A person convicted of a disorderly persons offense, for example, can be sentenced up to 6 months in jail and up to 30 days for a petty disorderly persons offense. In addition, the municipal court judge can impose heavy fines, can take away your driving privileges, or both.

A conviction for any disorderly persons offense means that you would have a criminal record which could affect employment and educational opportunities. Call Clark, Clark & Noonan, LLC today at 732-303-7857 for free to discuss your case in the Spring Lake, New Jersey, area.

Experienced Traffic Violation Defense Attorneys

We will fight to have charges dismissed or reduced from reckless driving (which can be considered a criminal offense) to careless driving which is considered a traffic violation. A conviction on reckless driving charges will almost certainly lead to an increase in your auto insurance rates and adds 5 points to your New Jersey driver’s license. While a conviction of careless driving can also lead to an increase in insurance rates, careless driving only adds 2 points to your New Jersey driver’s license and the penalties are less severe.

Even minor traffic violations and municipal offenses can have a serious impact on your driving privileges and your criminal record. Many people do not think to hire an attorney when it comes to a traffic violation or a related offense, and instead choose to pay the fine or plead “guilty” without trying to challenge the traffic citation or moving violation offense.
