While many view traffic violations as minor infractions and nuisances, traffic tickets and moving violations have the power to wreak havoc on your life. Fees quickly mount, and points from tickets can cause your insurance premiums to skyrocket or result in a revoked or suspended license. We does not underestimate the seriousness of traffic violations and doggedly works on your behalf to get the charges you face reduced or dismissed.

Whether you have been charged with a moving or a non-moving violation, I possess the knowledge needed to protect your best interests in traffic court.
I take a detail-oriented approach to traffic violation defense cases. I interview you to obtain as much information as possible regarding the circumstances surrounding your moving violation, examining every aspect of your case to see if the police officers violated standard procedures or failed to perform their duties as required. I explore every scenario to determine your best course of action, and I attend your trial to question those testifying against you.
Other Municipal Court Matters
I can also represent you in respect to:
Not every matter I address in Municipal Court involves traffic matters.
The Municipal Courts also have jurisdiction over disorderly persons offenses and ordinance infractions such as:
- Simple assault
- Drinking in public and other disorderly and petty disorderly offenses
- City Ordinance violations such as noise violations, littering, etc.
- Expungements I can also handle expungements of prior criminal charges and convictions from the municipal courts or Superior Court.
Although disorderly persons offenses are considered minor infractions, they can involve jail and fines and penalties as well, and remain on your record unless expunged. Convictions can also have serious immigration implications for those who are either legal residents or undocumented aliens, or those seeking to apply for citizenship.
