Chester Township New Jersey Defense Attorneys
The Chester Township Municipal Court is one of the busier municipal courts in Morris County. Over the last year alone, the court has seen nearly 2,500 cases come across its docket. For a court that only employs a single judge, that can seem like a daunting task. Even more concerning, is that your individual case will be sandwiched between a variety of other cases that may take precedent over yours. Without legal representation, it can be difficult to have your case thoroughly examined and adjudicated. With a 68% increase in the number of disorderly persons and petty disorderly persons offenses from 2011-2012 to 2012-2013, it appears as though the number of cases at the Chester Township Municipal Court will only continue to increase. If you or someone you know has been charged with any type of criminal offense in Chester Township, please contact our offices at 973-971-0030 for a free case evaluation.
