About Ocean Township, New Jersey

Not to be confused with Ocean Township in nearby Monmouth County, the Township of Ocean brushes against Barnegat Bay in south-central Ocean County. Historically, this community goes locally by the name of "Waretown" after one of its earliest Quaker Baptist settlers, and to this day, most of Ocean Township's 9000 residents still refer to it as Waretown despite a failed attempt to have its name legally changed.

The Importance of Having Legal Representation at Ocean County Municipal Court

In New Jersey, even small offenses can have significant repercussions such as probation, fines, and jail time—not to mention a criminal record that could follow you for years to come. If you choose to take on your case in municipal court without professional legal representation, you may be likely to receive a more severe sentence. An experienced lawyer with knowledge of municipal court processes will work hard to reduce your penalties, have your charges reduced, or even get the charges dismissed. If you meet the requirements, your attorney can also help you apply for diversionary programs such as Pre-Trial Intervention and Conditional Discharge that provide an opportunity for keeping a clean record without going through prosecution.
