If you are being charged, even if it is only a traffic violation or disorderly person's offense, you are still entitled to certain Constitutional Rights. You have the right to plead "not guilty" and to have a trial where the State must prove your guilt beyond a reasonable doubt. And you have the right to be represented at each stage by an attorney. Always remember that a prosecutor will represent the state's best interest, not yours. So who represents your interests when you are charged with an offense? Christoffersen Law Firm. If you live outside of New Jersey and are charged in New Jersey with a traffic or disorderly person's offense, we can help resolve the charges without your having to return to New Jersey.
