About Willingboro Township, New Jersey
First established by Quakers as a constabulary in 1688 (then called “Wellingborough”), Willingboro is one of the oldest continuously existing townships in New Jersey. A fairly small community until the mid-20th century, the town's population swelled in the years following WWII with suburban zoning and development of affordable housing after the soldiers returned from war. Today, Willingboro is home to approximately 36,000 people; its location in north Burlington County provides relatively easy commutes into Philadelphia.

Why You Need an Experienced Willingboro Township Defense Attorney
Even if your offense is minor, it's not a good idea for you to appear before a municipal court without an experienced attorney.

A skilled attorney can work on your behalf to get a lower sentence, reduced charges, or even have the charges dropped altogether.
