Drunk Driving/DUI

Traffic Violations – DUI – Simple Assault

At Koles, Burke & Bustillo, L.L.P., our attorneys appear in every municipal court in North Jersey, especially Hudson County. The municipal court system in the state oversees minor offenses, such as traffic violations and disorderly conduct. It is usually the first and only contact most people have with the New Jersey criminal justice system. While the offenses are termed minor, the consequences can still be significant. It is important to have knowledgeable legal counsel and advice when going into municipal court. If you have been summoned to appear in municipal court, contact our law firm to schedule a free consultation on any accident cases.

Our lawyers have helped clients deal with every type of violation, including:

  • DUI/Drunk Driving

Even in municipal court, the stakes can be high

Whether you receive a citation coming out of the Lincoln Tunnel at Weekawken, the Holland Tunnel in Jersey City, or have been charged with a DUI/Drunk Driving, the stakes can be high.
