Municipal Court Matters Do Really Matter

Prior to founding The Law Office of Frank J. Materia, I learned a lot about the misconceptions people have about municipal court matters. I discovered, much to my surprise, that many New Jersey residents are unaware of the ramifications of municipal court convictions. This discovery affected me greatly and made me want to be a lawyer who helps clients understand possible consequences while building defense strategies to mitigate those possibilities.

The Types Of Cases I Handle

I offer representation to clients from Essex County and throughout New Jersey facing a wide range of charges that fall under municipal court jurisdiction, including the following common offenses:

  • Traffic and moving violations
  • Driver's license suspensions
  • Driving while intoxicated
  • Minor drug offenses
  • Simple assaults
  • Bad checks

The Effects A Municipal Court Conviction Can Have

Municipal court convictions can have multiple effects. For example, those convicted of DWI in New Jersey can face loss of driving privileges, fines, community service, jail time and much more. While any of these consequences can be detrimental to a hard-working person's life, together, these consequences can spell financial disaster.

My goal is to help my clients understand the penalties they face could damage their futures, and to work with them to build strategies to prevent offenses that, so often, resulted from simple bad decisions.
