About Hamilton Township, New Jersey 

One of two municipalities in New Jersey named after Alexander Hamilton (the other is in Mercer County), Hamilton Township is a municipality of about 25,000 people located in the central part of Atlantic County. With over 110 square miles of land area, the township is largely rural, occupying a significant portion of the Pinelands National Reserve. However, it is also home to unincorporated Mays Landing, which serves as the county seat for Atlantic County and includes the courthouse complex for the region.   

About Hamilton Township Municipal Court  

As of Jan. 2022, Hamilton Township Municipal Court has consolidated with the newly opened Central Municipal Court of Atlantic County in Mays Landing. The municipal court primarily handles traffic and ordinance infractions, as well as minor disorderly persons charges that fall within township jurisdiction. More serious indictable offenses are handled by Atlantic County Superior Court, which is also located in Mays Landing. If emergency temporary restraining orders are needed during holidays, weekends, or off-hours when Superior Court is not in session, one of the municipal judges on-call can issue them.

How We Can Help Defendants in Hamilton Township Municipal Court 

Although municipal courts deal mainly with minor offenses, these offenses can still result in jail time, fines, and the generation of a damaging criminal record. Your chances of avoiding these severe outcomes go up considerably when you hire a New Jersey criminal defense attorney with specific municipal court experience. A competent attorney may negotiate for lenient penalties or even to have the charges dropped. If you are eligible, your attorney can also help you apply for a diversionary program like Pre-Trial Intervention, which could effectively save you from having a criminal record once the program is completed.
