While New Jersey’s municipal courts do not handle the same level of cases as the state’s criminal courts, depending on the charges against you, going to trial in the Flemington Municipal Court can still be a very serious matter. DWIs and certain other offenses within the municipal courts’ jurisdiction carry the potential for jail time; and, even if you are not at risk for incarceration, you could still be facing substantial fines, loss of driving privileges and other consequences.
At Helmer, Conley & Kasselman, P.A., we bring centuries of experience to representing clients in municipal court matters. Many of our attorneys have been practicing for decades, and we have represented clients statewide in cases involving virtually all criminal charges and traffic offenses. We understand what is at stake, and we know what it takes to present a successful defense. If you are facing charges in Flemington, we can help you, and we encourage you to contact a Flemington Municipal Court attorney promptly to discuss your case.
Due to the potential for severe consequences, if you have been assigned a court date in the Flemington Municipal Court, it is imperative that you discuss your case with an attorney. Our municipal court practice involves representing individuals charged with offenses including:
In municipal court cases, one potential defense strategy is to seek a conditional dismissal. Under New Jersey’s conditional dismissal program, eligible defendants can have their charges dismissed if they go a year without committing another offense. Conditional dismissal is not available in all cases (for example, it is not possible to obtain a conditional dismissal for a DWI), and you cannot obtain a conditional dismissal if you have previously been convicted of a disorderly persons offense or previously entered into a diversion program. But, if you are eligible, it may be an option worth considering.
Of course, if you are innocent or you have other defenses that entitle you to a “not guilty” verdict at trial (i.e. if the arresting officer violated your constitutional rights), committing to a diversion program may not be in your best interests. Our attorneys can carefully assess the facts of your case to determine your best path forward. If possible, we will fight to protect you against the consequences of a municipal court conviction entirely.
