The initial appearance date that is on your Beachwood summons or complaint is for arraignment on the charge. This is the proceeding where you are advised of your rights and must enter your initial plea of guilty or not guilty. It is in your best interests to contact an attorney before you enter a plea as, our office for example, secures downgrades or dismissals of an offense far more often than not. It would therefore be foolish to enter a plea of guilty in Beachwood Municipal Court and subjecting yourself to the mandatory penalties associated with an offense before speaking to an attorney at the firm.

A significant factor in the disproportionate number of criminal and traffic charges is the presence of the Garden State Parkway, including the stretch along Jakes Branch County Park.

What Clients Say About Our Ocean County Criminal Defense Attorneys
Exemplary attorneys. I hired them for a DUI and an expungement. I was happy with the results for both cases. Special thank you to Samera for always answering all of my calls and questions JC
I'm 45 years old and this was my first time ever getting in trouble with the law. I was in need of a lawyer and after careful research, I called John F. Marshall Attorneys and was introduced to Abe Basch. Abe was professional, supportive and very thorough. I had three charges against me, one civil and two criminal. I was so scared and expressed that to Abe. The first day I had to go to court, I was an absolute nervous wreck but Abe prepped me and kept my anxiety levels down by going over the process of the courts thoroughly with me. He fought to get my charges dismissed and won all three cases (two court appearances). Abe is positive, confident and he ensured I felt the same way. I'd like to say thank you to Abe for working so diligently on my cases to get them dismissed. I feel like a weight has been lifted off my chest! I highly recommend Abe for any charges you may be faced with. Rose C.
