Usually, a person’s first experience with the Court system is through Municipal Court charges involving either motor vehicle offenses or other minor, non-indictable offenses which are generally heard in Municipal Court. It is very important to contact an experienced Municipal Court/Criminal Defense Attorney if you are facing a traffic offense or other Municipal Court offenses. Many of these charges can result in the imposition of high fines, potential incarceration and loss of driving privileges. Due to the sheer volume of Municipal Court cases, many of these matters can be successfully downgraded through the plea bargaining process with the exception of drug offenses and drunk driving offenses. It is important to have an experienced attorney who practices in the various municipal jurisdictions and who is familiar with the particular inclinations of the Judges and Prosecutors. For this reason, if you are charged with a motor vehicle or non-indictable Municipal Court offense, you should call the law firm of Schibell, Mennie & Kentos, LLC, immediately to determine what your rights are and the potential consequences you could be facing.
