Providing A Strategic Defense For Municipal Offenses In Fanwood

Fanwood is a municipality in Union County, New Jersey and is located a little more than thirty minutes from New York City. It has a population of about 7400 and is situated on 1.5 square miles of land. The municipality is small and sleepy, and the Fanwood municipal court hears mostly speeding violations or DUI related charges. My name is Anthony N. Palumbo, and I have over 35 years of experience defending individuals charged with municipal offenses in Union County including DUI/DWI, Trespass, Shoplifting, Resisting Arrest, and Traffic Violations. If you have received a traffic summons, ticket or complaint in Fanwood, I can assist in your defense. Contact me today at 1-866-664-8118 for a Free Consultation over the phone or in person.

DUI/DWI In Fanwood

Being charged with a DUI, DWI, or Breathalyzer Refusal (Alcotest) in Fanwood is serious and requires an aggressive defense to minimize the penalties. In New Jersey, it is illegal to operate a car with either a blood alcohol level of .08 percent or higher or while under the influence of drugs. The penalties depend on whether it is a person’s First DUI Offense, Second DUI Offense, or Third DUI Offense. In my 35 years of practice, I have almost always been able to significantly reduce the penalties my clients face, but without proper representation, a DUI offense can easily result in jail time, loss of license, and heavy fines.

Marijuana And Paraphernalia In Fanwood

If you are charged with Possession of Less than 50 Grams of Marijuana, Possession of Drug Paraphernalia, or Possession of Drugs in a Car in Fanwood, you will be charged with a disorderly persons offense and your case will be heard in the Fanwood municipal court. Municipal marijuana charges can usually be resolved easily, but only if they are handled properly. For the vast majority of my clients I am able to eliminate prison time, reduce fines, and prevent a criminal record from accruing. However, a disorderly persons offense does carry penalties of 6 months in prison and $1,000 in fines and without an avid defense this sentence could easily be applied.

Traffic Offenses In Fanwood

I have a reputation for excellence defending traffic offenses in Union County including Speeding, Driving without Insurance, Failure to Stop, and Leaving the Scene of an Accident. Although the penalties for these offenses can often be reduced or avoided altogether, without an experienced traffic attorney, these charges can be a serious hindrance on your life. Do not underestimate the importance of retaining an experienced Union County traffic lawyer. I will do everything in my power to keep you out of jail and make sure you keep your license even when receiving multiple summonses.

I will aggressively defend your case to reduce the consequences of your charge. As an experienced criminal lawyer, I have the knowledge and expertise to defend municipal charges in Fanwood. Call 1-866-664-8118 and have a Free Phone or Office Consultation today.
