Although disorderly person's offenses (often referred to misdemeanors in other states) are less serious than indictable ones, they can still have serious consequences. Convictions can result in hefty fines, loss of driving privileges and even jail time. Traffic convictions ensure that your insurance rates will increase, and stay that way for years. At the Law Offices of Michael T. Nolan, Jr., I focus on criminal defense. If you or a loved one has been arrested and faces charges in Municipal Court, call my office in Brick for a free case evaluation. I have helped many people in your situation, and I can help you, too.

Traffic violations can have a serious impact on your life. Almost all of us rely on our cars for transportation. If your license is suspended or revoked, it can make your life very difficult. A traffic violation conviction can also make your car insurance prohibitively expensive for three to five years after the conviction.
No matter what the charge, if you have been arrested, call me right away. The sooner a DUI/DWI lawyer is on the case, the better your chances of a more favorable outcome.
