Kurkowski Law -- Criminal Defense

Municipal Violations

The overwhelming majority of people who find themselves charged with a crimeare involved in disorderly persons offenses that fall within the jurisdiction New Jersey's municipal courts.

Although these matters may seem minor, a conviction for a disorderly persons offense carries a maximum sentence of 180 days in jail, up to two years of probation, fines up to $1,000, and the loss of driving privileges in certain instances. Additionally, a conviction for a disorderly persons offense will leave you with a criminal record that may significantly interfere with your ability to obtain employment and certain state licenses. Given these serious consequences, it is critical to have experienced legal representation to protect your rights.

If you have been arrested or charged with a criminal offense in municipal court, Kurkowski Law can provide the aggressive criminal defense that can favorably impact the outcome of your case.
