Overview of Howell Township, New Jersey

Situated in southern Monmouth County, Howell Township is the largest municipality by land area in the county. It emerged in the early 1800s and, for many years, was based primarily on agriculture (along with a couple of decades of iron bog mining). While it still offers its residents a suburban lifestyle, its increasing growth over the years has made it one of the more populous bedroom communities within the NYC suburbs--home to almost 56,000 people.

The Howell Township Municipal Court

The Howell Township Municipal Court is located at the Police Station on Old Tavern Road. The court primarily manages cases pertaining to traffic violations, ordinance infringements, and disorderly persons offenses, while more grave indictable offenses are referred to the Superior Court of Monmouth County in Freehold Borough.

The Importance of Legal Representation at Municipal Court

In New Jersey, even seemingly minor offenses can result in hefty fines, jail time, and a lasting criminal record which can adversely affect your life. These repercussions are more probable if you choose to self-represent in court. A criminal defense attorney with specific municipal court experience can introduce compelling evidence to establish your innocence, negotiate for lesser charges or penalties, and may even secure a total dismissal of the charges. If you qualify for a diversionary program such as Pre-Trial Intervention or Conditional Discharge, your lawyer can also aid with the application process to enhance your chances of approval.

To put it simply, the Lento Law Firm offers you the greatest chance to secure leniency and achieving a more positive outcome in court. We represent clients dealing with all court-related issues at the Howell Township Municipal Court, including:
