An Attorney Who Knows The System
In New Jersey, many legal matters that affect our everyday lives are addressed in municipal court. Every municipality in the state has a court (some smaller communities share one). Matters that municipal courts address include:
- Traffic violations
- Drunk driving cases
- Zoning and health code violations
- Ordinance violations
- Petty offenses
Attorney Colleen Dolcy was formerly the assistant prosecutor in Essex County and a municipal prosecutor in Toms River Township and other area communities. Her background as a prosecutor gives her valuable insight when defending her clients in municipal court proceedings.
Avoiding Serious Consequences
Many view municipal courts as less serious than criminal courts, but the consequences of these matters can, in fact, be very serious. A DUI conviction will have life-changing results, resulting a suspended driver’s license, costing you thousands of dollars in fines, fees and increased insurance rates, and exposing you to other penalties such as probation or jail time.
Even a speeding ticket can cost you dearly in the long run. As points on your driver’s license add up, so do insurance rates and the possibility your driver’s license will be suspended or revoked. By hiring an attorney who is experienced in the New Jersey municipal court system, you can give yourself the best possible chance of avoiding these adverse outcomes.
