Legal Services For Individuals Facing Criminal Charges and Traffic Violations In New Jersey

At the Law Offices of Michele Finizio, our experienced New Jersey criminal law attorneys work with individuals and their families who face charges in the New Jersey criminal and juvenile courts and traffic and municipal courts.


Criminal Court Proceedings

If you have been arrested and charged with a crime in New Jersey, you will find yourself in criminal court.  Many New Jersey criminal convictions result in mandatory jail time.  Do not risk losing your freedom by appearing at a criminal court proceeding without competent legal representation. You do not have to navigate the complexities of the New Jersey criminal justice system on your own. Our criminal defense lawyers provide legal representation to individuals charged with crimes in New Jersey including assault and battery, drug possession and distribution, gun offenses and weapons charges, resisting arrest, shoplifting, and theft, burglary and robbery.  We represent defendants appearing in both New Jersey state and federal courts on all types of criminal charges.


Juvenile Court Proceedings

Most minors charged with a crime will need to appear in Family Court to defend themselves against delinquency charges.  Our juvenile defense attorneys aggressively represent juveniles facing delinquency charges in New Jersey Family Court and during hearings in front of the New Jersey Juvenile Commission. We understand that the goal of most families is to keep their child out of a juvenile detention center. Our attorneys have vast experience with juvenile diversionary programs including the New Jersey Conference Committee, the Intake Services Conference and the Juvenile Referee/Informal Court which all work toward the rehabilitation of juveniles outside of the juvenile detention system.


Traffic Court Proceedings

Serious traffic violations may result in significant fines, loss of driving privileges and even jail time.  You may find yourself in traffic court if you have been charged with the offenses of DWI / DUI, reckless driving, driving without a license or with a suspended license, leaving the scene of an accident, driving without insurance, speeding, failure to observe traffic signals, improper passing, racing, tailgating or failing to report a traffic accident.  Our Cherry Hill traffic attorneys provide legal representation to individuals appearing in traffic court to help them obtain reduction in traffic violation fines, insurance surcharges, points, license suspensions and jail sentences.


Municipal Court Proceedings

Whether you are in Municipal Court to contest disorderly persons offenses, simple assault, violations of town ordinances or any other municipal court offense, experienced legal representation can be the difference between jail time or probation and the limited payment of court costs and fees. New Jersey municipal court attorney Michele Finizio has earned the respect of local prosecutors and judges and can assist you in resolving all of your New Jersey municipal court matters quickly and efficiently.
