Disorderly Persons Offenses

Proven Representation in Disorderly Persons Prosecutions in New Jersey

Attorney Matthew V. Markosian—An Aggressive Advocate in Municipal Court Proceedings

In the state of New Jersey, crimes are not labeled as ‘misdemeanors’ and ‘felonies.’ Instead, when you face prosecution for a criminal offense, you’ll be charged with either an indictable offense (similar to a felony in other states) or a disorderly persons offense, the equivalent of a misdemeanor in other jurisdictions. It’s important to understand, though, that the consequences of conviction of a disorderly persons offense can be significant. You could face as much as six months of jail time or fines of up to $1,000. You want a proven lawyer to protect your constitutional rights. You want attorney Matthew V. Markosian.

At the law offices of Matthew V. Markosian, we aggressively fight for the rights of people in New Jersey charged with any type of disorderly persons offense, including petty disorderly persons offenses. In more than 15 years of practice, Matt has regularly protected the rights of his clients in court. A proven trial lawyer, he knows how to anticipate the strategies of opposing counsel, and he knows when it’s in your best interests to take your case to trial or pursue a plea arrangement.

The hallmarks of Matt’s practice have always been a strong commitment to communication and a dedication to the highest levels of client service and satisfaction. He understands the impact a disorderly persons offense prosecution can have on every part of your life and will work hard to keep you fully involved and informed at all times, so that you know of any developments, as well as your options and likelihood of success. That’s what you need to make the right decisions about how you want to proceed. Matt also strives to be there when you have questions or concerns, and to return your calls and emails as quickly as possible.
