Criminal Defense and DWI Defense Attorney in Medford, NJ
Criminal and Traffic Ticket Lawyer Representing Clients in Medford Municipal Court
If you’ve received a complaint from Medford Municipal Court you’re not alone. Like all municipal courts in New Jersey, Medford Municipal Court has responsibility for everything from violations of motor vehicle & traffic laws (Title 39) to minor criminal offenses (like simple assault) that may result in a fine or jail time. It also has responsibility for municipal ordinance offenses (like building code offenses) as well as fish, game and boating violations. In addition, some more serious criminal complaints— like robbery and auto theft—start in Municipal Court but are transferred to Superior Court. These more serious offenses, sometimes referred to as indictable offenses, are sent to the County Prosecutor’s Office; at that point the County Prosecutor has the discretion to send the case to a Grand Jury or back to the Municipal Court.
At the Law Offices of Michele Finizio we’ve found that Municipal Court workers almost always provide quality service, but there is a limit to how much they can help you or any other defendant. Generally speaking, court staffers can answer questions about how the court works, provide information from your case file, provide guidance as to how to fill out forms, and possibly answer questions about court deadlines. Medford Municipal Court even has a Frequently Asked Questions page on its Web site, as well as a page that explains What Happens on Your Day in Court.
But you probably have a lot of questions that pertain to your particular case and the circumstances surrounding it. At the Law Offices of Michele Finizio we know that those questions are best addressed by a reputable attorney who can provide legal advice informed by years of experience handling similar cases. For example, a lawyer with extensive experience in Medford Municipal Court can help you decide whether to bring your case to court, and also advocate on your behalf and speak with the judge and prosecutor about your case.

Our fees are reasonable and we provide strong yet compassionate representation to our clients.
