Defense Strategies for Municipal Court Matters

While the penalties associated with municipal violations are less serious than felonies, they can still have a very big impact on a person’s life, including employment opportunities and financial aid eligibility. If you have been charged with a municipal violation, it is imperative to work with an experienced lawyer.

I am Susan C. Cassell, Esq., and I have been practicing law for the past 20 years. I represent adults and juveniles throughout Bergen County and northern New Jersey who are facing criminal charges in the municipal courts. As a former federal and municipal prosecutor, I understand how the prosecution handles these cases as well as strategies to minimize or eliminate the charges you face.

Skilled Defense Against Municipal Offenses

A municipal violation, also known as a disorderly persons offense or nonindictable offense, can have long-lasting effects on your life. Many employers will not hire an employee with a criminal offense (misdemeanor) on his or her criminal record, which could limit your career options. Additionally, you may be ineligible to receive federal aid, which could have an impact on future educational opportunities. Because the stakes are so high, it is important to work with an attorney who is experienced handling cases in the municipal courts.

Look to me for experienced representation in all types of municipal offenses, including:

  • Underage drinking
  • Possession of an open alcoholic beverage
  • Public intoxication
  • Minor drug crimes
  • Possession of marijuana or cocaine
  • Possession of drug paraphernalia
  • Pharmaceutical abuse
  • Underage smoking
  • Shoplifting
  • Vandalism
  • Disorderly conduct
  • Assault
  • Minor domestic violence offenses
