It is important that you have an attorney on your side to evaluate the State's case, acquire all discovery, advise you of your options, and work to get you the best result possible.
The charges in Municipal Court can carry fines, license suspension, criminal records, and jail. Get a free consultation today to get to work on your defense.
Being a landlord places legal duties on you towards your tenants. At the same time you have the risk of tenants not honoring the lease agreement. Whether they stop paying rent or otherwise breach the lease the process of removing that tenant from your property can seem complicated. Not properly evicting a tenant can open you up to legal liability. We assist clients in creating a lease for their tenants, making sure any renewals or changes are properly documented, make sure that you are following the most current laws regarding being a landlord, and if necessary that an eviction is properly done.
Don't leave your loved ones to fight over your assets when you are gone. Estate planning allows you to direct where your assets go after your death, and to make a plan for the guardianship of any minor children. Without a plan in place the laws of New Jersey decide where your property goes. Our affordable plans make sure you have a firm understanding of the estate planning process, and the right documents in place to make that plan come true.
Any time you are arrested, charged with a criminal act, and/or convicted in New Jersey a record is created in State databases. If your case was dismissed or downgraded the record can still exist. For many people an expungement can have a positive effect on their ability to find employment, housing, government benefits and more. An expungement makes these records no longer appear in a background check. We offer free consultations, flat fees, and assistance from filing the petition through final order for expungement.
