New Jersey Municipal Court Lawyer


Bergen County

If you have been arrested for drug possession or received a speeding ticket or citation for a traffic violation such as driving with no insurance or DUI/DWI, the consequences can be serious. They may include fines, loss of your driver’s license, or even jail time. Pleading guilty to a traffic offense, even to a speeding ticket, will not only mean a fine but application of the New Jersey DMV points system, which could lead to eventual suspension of your license and extremely high insurance rates for several years.

Before pleading guilty to a traffic or speeding ticket, it is often worthwhile to discuss the situation with an attorney. Contact our Hackensack, New Jersey office to make arrangements for a free consultation with our Bertgen County criminal defense lawyer. You may permanently damage your case by talking with police and prosecutors before talking with an attorney.

Jeffrey B. Steinfeld, PC  has represented clients facing municipal court charges. When Jeffrey B. Steinfeld, PC represents a client, we look at what the State can prove, not what our client has done. The State must prove municipal court cases, like all other criminal cases, beyond a reasonable doubt. By demonstrating even before trial that the State has no case, we may be able to arrange for a plea bargain, reduced charges, or even complete dismissal of the charges.

Jeffrey B. Steinfeld, PC represents individuals facing serious charges such as the following:
  • DUI / DWI / drunk driving
  • refusal to give breathalyzer
  • speeding tickets
  • driving with no insurance
  • driving with a suspended license
  • careless driving
  • reckless driving and leaving the scene of an accident
  • assault and battery
  • drug possession
  • possession of drug paraphernalia (CDS possession)
  • resisting arrest
  • disorderly conduct

Make sure your rights and privileges are protected to the greatest extent possible. An arrest can be a devastating experience, and the consequences can follow you for the rest of your life, whether that means New Jersey DMV points or loss of a professional license. Because the New Jersey court system is complex, you benefit from the counsel of a skilled and knowledgeable New Jersey criminal defense lawyer even in municipal court.

If you have been arrested for assault, drunk driving, or possession of marijuana, or if you have received a traffic ticket, you need someone on your side who understands the law and how the municipal courts work. Contact the Law Office of Jeffrey B.
