Ship Bottom Criminal Defense AttorneysMatthew Dorry, Former Prosecutor in Ship Bottom on Staff

The Ocean County municipality of Ship Bottom is located on Long Beach Island and has a population of about 1,400 people. The municipality is an extremely popular shore destination for beach goers and is even referred to as the “Gateway to Long Beach Island”. It is accessible easily via Route 72, which continues through Manahawkin Bay over the Manahawkin Bay Bridge. All of these factors translate into far more traffic violations and criminal charges than you would expect in this 1.0 square mile town. Our attorneys are well aware of this circumstance as Matthew Dorry of our office formerly served as prosecutor in Ship Bottom. If you were charged with a criminal offense, DWI or serious motor vehicle violation in Ship Bottom, Marshall & Bonus is well situated to defend you.

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.
