Ocean County Lawyers Handling Misdemeanors Defense

A misdemeanor charge is known as a "disorderly persons offense" in New Jersey. These offenses are less serious than felonies, but still carry significant penalties. If you find yourself accused, you should reach out to a trusted attorney to discuss your options.

The Ocean County lawyers of Silvi, Fedele & Honschke have helped many people fight misdemeanor charges over the last 20-plus years.

Powerful Defense Against A Broad Range Of Crimes

Disorderly persons offenses are all tried in municipal court, where our lawyers are highly respected. Some of the crimes that would be considered as disorderly persons offenses are:

  • DUI/DWI
  • Lewd behavior
  • Possession of burglar's tools
  • False imprisonment
  • Criminal trespass
  • Criminal mischief
  • Theft
  • Shoplifting
  • Drug possession
  • Domestic violence
  • Check fraud
  • Resisting arrest
  • Simple assault
  • Driving without a license
  • Driving without insurance

We will provide an aggressive defense to prevent a permanent record, which may alter your ability to get a job, apply for school or, in the case of a DUI, may result in restrictions on driving. These kinds of penalties may not seem as serious as jail time, but they can greatly disrupt your life. We will work hard to prevent that from happening.
