Winning Your Case in the Newark Municipal Court: Best Practices in Defending the Newark Municipal Court Charge

The best practice for anyone charged with a municipal court offense, especially in the City of Newark Municipal Court is to hire an experienced attorney who is familiar with the local practices in that court.

Whether it be a traffic offense or a disorderly person’s offense it is wise to seek the advice of an attorney who has 25-years experience in appearing before the Newark Municipal Court.  The truth is that under New Jersey motor vehicle laws a traffic violation can have a number of negative effects on many important aspects of your life, which includes, but not limited to an increase in your insurance premiums, motor vehicle surcharges, motor vehicle points, inability to keep or maintain certain types of employment, and loss of driving privileges.  In the event of non-appearance before the municipal court, the Newark Municipal Court will automatically report your non-appearance to the New Jersey Division of Motor Vehicles, and in most cases the court will not re-list the case until bail is posted.  In the meantime, your privileges in New Jersey to operate a motor vehicle will be revoked and you will not be able to drive until the matter is re-listed, this might take several months or more.

Therefore, it is essential that you retain an experienced criminal and traffic attorney to guide you through the pitfalls and minefields of the Newark Municipal Court.  The Law Office of Vincent J. Sanzone, Jr., Esq., only has his client’s best interests in mind and will make every effort to obtain the best possible results based on the facts of your case.  Attorney Sanzone promises to aggressively and zealously defend you and protect you within the confides of the law.
