New Jersey Municipal Court Lawyers

A municipal court is a court whose jurisdiction or authority is limited to a specific municipality, county, community, or city. Municipal courts can preside over only those cases and offenses that have taken place within their jurisdiction. The Municipal Courts in New Jersey are considered courts of limited jurisdiction, having responsibility for motor vehicle and parking tickets, minor criminal-type offenses, municipal ordinance offenses and other offenses, such as fish and game violations. Many serious criminal cases, such as robbery, auto theft, or assault, start out as complaints filed in the Municipal Court but those cases are transferred to the Superior Court located at the county courthouse.
