Municipal Court Matters

When cities or towns fine you for alleged violations, it can be upsetting when you feel the charge is inaccurate or unfair. In New Jersey, municipal courts provide a venue for disputing alleged violations of local ordinances and other laws. If you have questions regarding a local ordinance or about municipal court hearings and proceedings, we can help.

At the law firm of Laufer, Dalena, Jensen & Bradley, LLC, in Morristown, we have helped thousands of northern New Jersey residents dispute charges in area municipal courts, including the cities of Morristown, Randolph, Chatham, Denville, Paterson, Hackensack, Somerville, New Brunswick, Elizabeth, Newark, Newton and Flemington.

Do you face a charge involving:

  • Traffic violations?
  • DUI/DWI, including a first, second or third offense?
  • A neighborhood dispute?
  • A zoning or housing dispute or violation?
  • Garbage-related violations?
  • Lawn and yard violations?

One of our lawyers, Jim Jensen, has served as a substitute municipal prosecutor and has appeared before virtually every municipal court in every town in northern and Central New Jersey. We are available to represent you in dozens of area courts, including evening and night courts.

Cities perform a needed service when creating and enforcing ordinances. But when cities err in assessing violations, it is your right to fight your charge. Often, the fine is small. But when neighbors, municipalities and other parties wrongly accuse you of a violation, we understand that it is important to set the record straight, and pursue justice and fairness. The first step in the process is a consultation to discuss your claim.
