Lake Como Borough Municipal Court

The Lake Como Borough Municipal Court only hears misdemeanor criminal offenses and traffic offense cases. In some instances, individuals charged with more serious offenses will have their initial court appearance in Lake Como Borough Municipal Court before their matter is transferred to the Monmouth County Prosecutor’s Office in Freehold.  A conviction for a violation like DWI, driving while suspended, or possession of marijuana can tarnish your record for a long time.  While the penalties of monetary fines, loss of driving privileges, community service, probation and sometimes even jail can be life-altering, the stigma of a having a criminal or motor vehicle conviction on your permanent record can haunt you for years to come.  Our office fights to avoid these outcomes.  We handle all Lake Como Borough Municipal Court charges including Underage Drinking, Possession of Marijuana, Shoplifting, Disorderly Conduct, Criminal Mischief, Speeding, Reckless Driving, Racing, DWI, Refusal, driving without insurance and driving while suspended or revoked.  We also help you seek the help you need if your actions were the result of a drug or alcohol addiction.  If you are being prosecuted for a criminal charge or traffic ticket like one of these, give our offices a call and tell us about your situation.
