Toms River Municipal Court

Toms River Criminal AttorneysMatthew Dorry, Former Prosecutor in Toms River on Staff

Toms River New Jersey is the county seat and also happens to be the busiest municipality in terms of criminal charges and traffic offenses in the region. Toms River ranks second in terms of population (i.e. 91,239 residents as of 2010) and is the home of the Ocean County Superior Court and Ocean County Prosecutor’s Office, all of which translate into more complaints than would be expected in the typical municipality in Ocean County. If you were arrested and are facing a municipal court offense like shoplifting, marijuana possession, DWI, simple assault or disorderly conduct, a conviction is something that you absolutely want to avoid. A plea or finding of guilt will result in a criminal record, fines and the possibility of a county jail term. The situation is even more pressing if your charge involves a first degree, second degree, third degree or fourth degree crime, for example, aggravated assault, burglary, cocaine distribution, possession with intent to distribute prescription drugs or another felony indictable offense.

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.
