Municipal Court Defense Attorney


When facing a criminal offense in municipal court, one of the biggest fears is the unknown such as:

  • Am I going to jail?
  • Can you keep me out of jail?
  • How much is this going to cost me?
  • Are your services affordable?
  • Will I lose my job?
  • Will this legal matter be open to the public?

Our law firm has considerable knowledge of the systems and procedures in each of the region’s municipal courts, including the criminal courts of New York City. Our founding criminal law attorney John Tierney is a former prosecutor for the district attorney’s office in the Bronx, New York. He offers a firsthand perspective on how the other side works. Mr. Tierney has the skills, tenacity and legal resources to try and level the playing field if you are accused of serious criminal allegations such as:

  • Drug possession
  • Juvenile offenses, including assault, drug possession, theft, property damage, underage alcohol consumption
  • DWI
  • Driving offenses, including reckless driving
  • Petty assaults and bar fights
  • Domestic violence
  • Larceny

We offer a client-centered approach focused on investigating the facts against you. We will not rush to negotiate with the prosecution. Instead, our defense lawyers seek to uncover any evidence that could be used in your favor. An alibi, witnesses’ statements or other key pieces of evidence could be used to undermine the prosecution’s evidence. We are also prepared to show if law enforcement violated any of your constitutional rights or made any false assumptions.

We will take every measure possible to protect your rights with an aggressive defense strategy.


Whether you are facing drug charges or any another serious offense, discuss your case with an experienced Morris County criminal defense lawyer during a free initial consultation.
