The important thing to determine is whether or not you are charged with a criminal offense for disorderly conduct under NJSA 2C:33-2(a). If so, this is a petty disorderly persons offense which is the lowest level criminal charge we have in New Jersey. That being said, it is a criminal offense and if you are convicted you are facing a fine, potential jail time, and a permanent criminal charge on your record.
However, if you are charged with a local ordinance (also known as a borough ordinance) violation for disorderly conduct, this is not a criminal charge and you do not need a lawyer for this. An ordinance violation just results in a fine and no criminal record.
Our NJ disorderly conduct lawyers have been handling these charges for many years. In fact, some of our attorneys used to prosecute these cases for the State of NJ and now defend our clients facing the same charges. We frequently appear in courts throughout NJ handling disorderly conduct charges including in Hoboken, Morristown, East Rutherford, and Newark. Contact our offices now for immediate assistance at 201-556-1570. The initial consultation is always provided free of charge.
