Camden County Criminal Defense Attorneys Protect Your Rights in Municipal Court

judge at Municipal Court

Regardless of whether your case is being handled in Superior Court or Municipal Court, securing the services of a criminal defense attorney is crucial to safeguarding your rights and ensuring a favorable outcome for your future. Even seemingly minor municipal violations and disorderly person’s offenses can lead to significant fines, penalties, and in some cases, county jail sentences. At Lackey & Miller, LLC, our attorneys bring valuable insight gained from years of experience as county and state prosecutors. With this unique perspective, we are well-prepared to defend against your charges in municipal court and strategize to secure the best possible result for your case.

Not all municipal cases begin in municipal court; some are charged as indictable offenses and undergo a review by the county prosecutor’s office. Depending on the circumstances and severity of the charges, these cases could be downgraded and sent back to municipal court for handling by a municipal prosecutor and municipal court judge. Whether your case begins in municipal court or undergoes a review from the county prosecutor’s office, our commitment remains the same – to provide exceptional legal counsel and advocacy to achieve the best possible outcome for your case. We diligently examine the charges, evidence, and potential weaknesses in the prosecution’s case, allowing us to build a strong defense on your behalf.

In municipal court, you may encounter a wide range of cases, including:

  • Criminal Mischief (N.J.S.A. 2C:17-3)
  • Disorderly Conduct (N.J.S.A. 2C:33-2)
  • Wandering or Loitering to Obtain CDS (N.J.S.A. 2C:33-2.1)
  • Theft (N.J.S.A. 2C:20-3)
  • Trespassing/Unlicensed Entry (N.J.S.A. 2C:18-3)
  • Harassment (N.J.S.A. 2C:33-4)
  • Obstruction (N.J.S.A. 2C:29-1)
  • Resisting Arrest (N.J.S.A. 2C:29-2a1)
  • Simple Assault (N.J.S.A. 2C:12-1a)
  • Failure to Deliver CDS to Law Enforcement (N.J.S.A. 2C:35-10c)
  • Use or Possession with Intent to Use Drug Paraphernalia (N.J.S.A. 2C:36-2)
  • Shoplifting (N.J.S.A. 2C:20-11)
