Municipal Court Lawyer


Municipal Courts are the lowest judicial level in the New Jersey court system, and are granted limited jurisdiction to handle cases within the boundaries of their municipality. They are the busiest courts in our state.

Marc Chase will represent clients in municipal courts for cases of a non-criminal nature, such as:

  • Traffic violations
  • Municipal ordinance offenses
  • Neighborhood disputes
  • Disorderly conduct
  • Domestic violence

In instances of domestic violence, I will help clients obtain temporary restraining orders from municipal court judges.


Traffic violations can significantly impact motor vehicle insurance rates. When motor vehicle points are assessed they may result in license suspension, increased premium and/or surge charges. Traffic offenses include the following violations:

  • Speeding
  • Reckless driving
  • Careless driving
  • Driving without insurance
  • Driving without a license
  • Running a stop sign or traffic light
  • Driving with expired license plates

Having Marc Chase appear at your side in municipal court provides several advantages. You have legal counsel to inform you of your rights, ensure the citation is legally valid, and to work with the prosecutor to dismiss or reduce charges.


Do not underestimate the seriousness of a municipal court offense. Retaining a lawyer experienced in handling such cases can save you from increased insurance rates, cancellation insurance, driver’s license revocation, and under certain circumstances, jail time.
