Former Municipal Prosecutor!

As a former Municipal Prosecutor for the Township of Piscataway, I certainly know what the State is very likely to argue in their case against you. Since the Prosecutor obviously only represents the police, you certainly have the right to have someone on YOUR side to challenge the allegations made against you. Having offices in East Brunswick, Woodbridge and Princeton, I regularly deal with many of the Prosecutors in these towns and in the many surrounding Municipal Courts. I believe in aggressively fighting for my clients to help them avoid the harsh penalties that they are facing. I enjoy challenging the police and the allegations they have. There is no greater joy than fighting for my clients and winning. Being experienced in this area of law has proven to be beneficial to many of my clients. My goal is to reduce, eliminate and/or possibly even dismiss the charges against you. I am here to help you take on the Prosecutor and the police. The only one who benefits from you getting points on your record is your insurance company.

Know your legal rights and your defenses

You deserve to know all of your legal rights and defenses to each offense for which you are being charged. It is important that you understand that you are innocent until proven guilty, period. If you do plead guilty or are found guilty to certain offenses, you may owe fines, lose your license, receive motor vehicle points, of which, all could affect your car insurance. Obviously, this could be very costly. My goal is to help reduce the points and/or penalties which you may be facing. Unlike other law firms, you will not be shuffled around from person to person. I will personally handle your matter myself, from start to finish. As I know your license is important to you, your matter is certainly very important to me. I have been defending clients for years for traffic related matters and have been very successful in many of the Municipal Courts that I have appeared in. The police have a prosecuting attorney representing their interest, who is going to be there to protect your interest? You should not go to court alone or unrepresented. I am here to fight for you and all of your rights.

Listed below are some of the more "common" offenses that a driver may be charged with. These charges are an over-simplified list. I am certainly willing to discuss your particular matter and discuss all of the possible penalties which you are facing. Call (732) 321-9100 today for a FREE consultation.
