Criminal Defense and DWI Defense Attorney in Moorestown, NJ

Criminal and Traffic Ticket Lawyer Representing Clients in Moorestown Municipal Court

At the Law Offices of Michele Finizio, we recognize that being charged with a crime can be a traumatic and unsettling experience. In part, that’s because the consequences of criminal liability can be far-reaching, with jail time, loss of licensure, and a permanent criminal record among the possible penalties. No less significant, though, are the potential financial implications, which typically include fines and surcharges, as well as increases in insurance premiums, court costs, and fees. Finally, a conviction—even for a petty offense—can damage your reputation in the local community and seriously diminish your future earning capacity by undermining your ability to pursue desirable employment opportunities.

If you’ve been charged with a crime (or issued a traffic citation) in Moorestown, your case is likely to be heard in Moorestown Municipal Court. Municipal courts typically hear cases involving lesser offenses like disorderly conduct, drug possession, shoplifting, and simple assault. Though cases are generally heard and resolved relatively quickly and don’t often result in a jail sentence, criminal charges brought in Moorestown Municipal Court should always be taken seriously and warrant consulting with a reputable, experienced criminal defense attorney.

If you have been charged with a criminal offense and your case is to be heard in Moorestown Municipal Court, the Law Offices of Michele Finizio can help. Contact attorney Michele Finizio for a free case evaluation today.

About Moorestown, NJ

Moorestown is a township in southwest Burlington County, NJ, that encompasses 15.1 square miles and has a population of 20,726 residents. Located approximately 10 miles east of Philadelphia, it borders Cinnaminson and Delran townships to the west, Willingboro township to the north, Mount Laurel township to the east, and Maple Shade township to the south.

The village of Moorestown was founded in 1682, though the area was originally known as Chester Township. The name Moorestown gradually replaced Chester, owing to the amount of local land owned by Thomas Moore, who settled in the area with his wife Elizabeth in 1722. Moorestown was officially incorporated by an act of the New Jersey State Legislature on March 11, 1922.

Filled with historical markers and historical homes, Moorestown has been referred to as an old-fashioned, Norman Rockwell-esque town, but it offers everything one could possibly want in a modern municipality. In fact, in 2005 Money magazine named Moorestown as the best place to live in America, winning the honor over more than one-thousand other small towns.

Notable people with strong ties to Moorestown include former Philadelphia Flyers players Bobby Clarke, Jeremy Roenick, Ulf Samuelsson and John Vanbiesbrouck. It’s also the birthplace of the late Steve Sabol, the co-founder of NFL Films.

Frequently Asked Questions About Traffic Tickets

Reviews Matter

“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.”
