About Folsom Municipal Court   

As of Jan. 1, 2022, the Folsom Municipal Court has consolidated with the newly-opened Central Municipal Court of Atlantic County in Mays Landing. The court primarily deals with traffic and ordinance violations, as well as less serious disorderly persons charges that fall within the borough's authority. (Atlantic County Superior Court, also in Mays Landing, has jurisdiction over indictable offenses.) During holidays and off-hours, when the Superior Court is not in session, on-call municipal judges may issue emergency temporary restraining orders.

How a Good Attorney Can Help You in Municipal Court 

You might assume that minor offenses in municipal courts don't require an attorney, and that you can do just as well appearing on your own behalf. But not underestimate the possibility of severe penalties. Even minor offenses can lead to fines and jail time in New Jersey, not to mention generating a criminal record. This is especially likely if you don't have a good attorney representing you. An attorney with specific municipal court experience can often increase your chances of a favorable outcome, whether it's by negotiating for lesser penalties, downgraded charges, or even a complete dismissal of the case. If you're eligible for a diversionary program like Pre-Trial Intervention or Conditional Discharge, completion of such a program can result in dismissed charges and help you avoid a criminal record. An experienced attorney will know how to coordinate your application for the best results.
