Piscataway Township, New Jersey: A Brief Overview

First founded in 1666, Piscataway Township is the fifth oldest continuously existing township in New Jersey. Interestingly, it was established not by newly-arrived colonists, but by Quakers and Baptists escaping religious persecution from the Puritan colonies in New Hampshire. ("Piscataway" derives its name from the Piscataqua River in New Hampshire.) Today, Piscataway is a commuter suburb of NYC, offering its 61,000 inhabitants the benefits of suburban living with proximity to shopping, dining, healthcare, and major thoroughfares.

About Piscataway Municipal Court

Piscataway Municipal Court convenes at the Public Safety Building on Sidney Road. The court chiefly deals with minor offenses such as traffic infractions, breaches of municipal ordinances, and disorderly persons offenses.

If the Superior Court offices are closed, like holidays and weekends, an on-call municipal judge may issue emergency temporary restraining orders if necessary.

The Significance of Having Legal Counsel in Municipal Court

Even seemingly minor offenses in New Jersey can lead to unwanted consequences, such as hefty fines, jail time, and a damaging criminal record that could follow you for years. Appearing on your own behalf in a municipal court is a perilous choice that increases the likelihood of incurring the maximum penalty for your charges. A skilled attorney can boost your odds of having the charges dismissed or receiving a lighter sentence. Moreover, an adept lawyer can help you apply for diversionary programs for which you may be eligible, such as Pre-Trial Intervention or Conditional Discharge, which may cause your charges to be dismissed upon completion with no criminal record.
