Municipal Court Offenses are Considered “Quasi Criminal.”
Municipal court matters range from traffic and motor vehicle tickets to “offenses,” which are defined in our Criminal Code. Offenses in Municipal Court can carry serious consequences such as heavy fines, DMV points, insurance surcharges, possible license loss, license suspension, and possible jail sentences. Hence, while they are only considered “offenses” in New Jersey (as opposed to crimes/felonies), they are afforded the same protections as a criminal matter is. This means that there is a presumption of innocence and the state must prove its case beyond a reasonable doubt. It also entitles the defendant other constitutional protections afforded to persons charged with crimes.
The partners of the Bianchi Law Group are both former prosecutors and are certified by the Supreme Court of New Jersey as Certified Criminal Trial Attorneys, an elite group comprised of only 250 attorneys in the State of New Jersey. Furthermore, Mr. Bianchi is the only practicing municipal court attorney who is both a Certified Criminal Trial Attorney and a former head County Prosecutor that now handles defense cases.
As former prosecutors, we know how the police operate, how investigations are conducted, and how to best defend against complaints and tickets filed against our clients. As prosecutors, the partners at The Bianchi Law Group had supervisory authority over every municipal police department and know the procedures, training, and manner with which the police are trained to operate. This intimate and unique knowledge, combined with our trial skills in cases ranging from homicides to traffic tickets enables the attorneys at The Bianchi Law Group the ability to deliver excellent representation to our municipal court clients.
Our Experience Speaks for Itself
Mr. Bianchi who himself was the head county prosecutor- a distinction of significant merit that very few Criminal Defense and municipal court defense attorneys possess. Mr. Bruno as a former Assistant Prosecutor has worked every kind of criminal investigation from homicide cases, fraud cases, to drug cases, and every kind of criminal case in-between. His knowledge of municipal court matters is extensive and far reaching. Mr. Bianchi and Mr. Bruno are only 2 of 250 attorneys certified by the New Jersey Supreme Court as certified criminal trial attorneys.
