The Law office of Raphael Darrington has knowledgeable attorneys for any Municipal Court offenses ranging from Traffic Tickets, Disorderly Persons Offenses, Bad Checks, Municipal Ordinance Violations, Simple Assault, Harassment and other minor violations. Municipal Courts are usually an introductory court forum because it’s the first court people usually become familiar with. Additionally, it’s known as a court of limited jurisdiction because it typically handles traffic cases and minor criminal violations. Many offenses may be punishable by incarceration but most offenses are usually settled with fines, probation and other preventative measures. Primarily if you have an infraction that happens to be in a local Municipal Court, please give us a call for a free consultation. We are experienced with attending initial hearings, assisting you with a legal strategy and negotiating with local prosecutors. Our goal is to expedite the plea process and get you the most advantageous outcome. We are often successful in our cases because we always timely request discovery. We become familiar with all evidence that’ll be presented before the judge and prosecutor.
If your case cannot be handled outside of litigation, we will happily fight to either win your case or get the case dismissed. However, we are honest in that not every case follows the same set of rules or can produce the most favorable outcomes. There are external factors that may contribute to the outcome such as: defendant’s criminal history, severity of crime, mandatory statutory minimums and whether or not there are programs suitable for your offense that you qualify for.
We typically charge a flat rate for any Municipal Court offenses we decide to take. We take cases throughout New Jersey, but we are in close proximity to all Courts in Union and Essex Counties. Our clients are typically satisfied with our flat fee approach because we remove the uncertainty of mounting legal fees. Additionally, if our cases are adjourned for a prolonged period, we do not require any additional funding. We are committed to honoring our contractual obligations and obtaining the best outcome for clients.
