Criminal Defense and DWI Defense Attorney in Bordentown, NJ

Criminal and Traffic Offense Lawyer Representing Clients in Bordentown Municipal Court

Here at the Law Offices of Michele Finizio, we understand that being charged with a criminal offense — even a minor one — in Bordentown, New Jersey can be a frightening and emotionally overwhelming concern for many defendants. Depending on the aggressiveness of the prosecutor pursuing such charges, you could be challenged with criminal liability that includes jail time, fines, loss of licensure, and a permanent mark on your record. Though the consequences may not be as severe as those associated with a felony charge, in truth, conviction for a disorderly persons offense (misdemeanor) can still damage your reputation in your community and seriously undermine your ability to seek new job opportunities.

If your case is heard in Bordentown Municipal Court, you’re already at an advantage. Municipal courts generally hear cases relating to lesser offenses, including but not necessarily limited to disorderly persons offenses, DWI offenses, traffic offenses, petty disorderly persons offenses, and minor municipal violations. These cases are typically heard quickly and do not involve a jury trial, thus minimizing the concern of a drawn-out dispute. Further, jail sentences are rare, and are limited to a 180-day maximum, while those who wish to have their record expunged may be provided a fast-track procedure for doing so.

Have you been charged with a lesser criminal offense or a traffic violation in Bordentown, New Jersey? Bordentown criminal defense attorney Michele Finizio can help.

“First class representation. Michele was my son’s attorney after he made a slight but bad decision that hurt no one, but one that potentially could have a caused a lifetime of employment problems in the future, despite having a four year college degree. First of all Michele was very proactive in protecting his rights. Rights we were not even aware of. She provided quick and reliable answers to our questions. Before we met with her our anxiety and worry was insatiable. The peace we felt after our first consultation alleviated all that and we knew we picked the right attorney. Her excellent negotiation skills resulted in a settling his case quickly and without conviction.

We owe a debt of gratitude for her service. I was shocked at how much she was able to do for my son. She is a solid lawyer who is honest and works to insure the best possible outcome for her client is achieved.”
