Non-motor vehicle related ticketable offenses


At AttackThatTicket we do not limit our defense of the public to just motor vehicle related ticketable offenses and violations. We represent the general public against all ticketable offenses heard before all municipal courts of the State of New Jersey.

Ticketable offenses are much more serious in New Jersey than in surrounding states such as New York and Pennsylvania. This is because there is no New Jersey offense that does not impute a person’s penal interest. In New Jersey, one is either charged with a “crime,” which would be considered a felony in other states, or a “disorderly persons offense” or a “petty disorderly persons offense.” Both of these charges are varying degrees of what would be in other states a misdemeanor. Unlike New York for example, New Jersey does not have a gradation of offense in its penal laws that are non-criminal infractions. This is why it is so important to retain counsel and fight the charges you received on any summons or ticket. It matters not whether you were taken into custody and formally arrested; all that matters is the charges written on the ticket and the ultimate disposition.

New Jersey is known as a summer destination place for its “Jersey Shore” beaches and attractions. And who among us hasn’t put back a cold one on a gorgeous summer’s day on a sandy beach? Sure it’s illegal, but it’s not exactly the crime of the century either.

So there you are soaking up the sun on the beach at Seaside Heights, New Jersey. You hardly hear the din of the ATV. A few seconds later you realize that you are covered in shade. Lazily, you open one eye to see if the sun is behind a random cloud. Much to your horror, the sun is not being blocked out by a cloud – it’s being blocked out by officer Buzz Kill of the Seaside Heights, NJ police department. Concealment of your half buried Budweiser is not an option, you’re busted.

Depending on the situation, you could be ticketed for:

  • Violation of Seaside Heights Municipal Code § 33-8(E), intoxicating liquor upon a beach; or
  • NJ Criminal Code § 2C:33-17. Making of alcoholic beverages to under aged available; or
  • NJ Criminal Code § 2C:33-15. Possession /Consumption of Alcoholic by minor; or
  • All three

Even if you were only charged with the municipal code this is still a very serious matter, as fines upon conviction range to up to $1,250.00 and it also carries up to 90 days in jail. In fact, each beachfront area and municipality along the New Jersey Shore has their own local municipal laws, rules, regulations, and ordinances prohibiting and regulating the possession of open containers of beer and alcohol in their community and on their beaches. They all carry severe penalties.

Every year hundreds of thousands of tickets for alcohol possession are issued to beachgoers in Monmouth and Ocean Counties, New Jersey. Many of these tickets are written to out of staters just looking to come to the beach for a good time. If you reside outside of New Jersey, do not assume that the ticket you were written for possession of a beer or alcohol is “no big deal.” In fact, sometimes it is not a big deal and we’ll tell you so. However often it is a much bigger deal then it would be in your home state and to plead guilty to avoid a court appearance would give you a permanent criminal history.

If you decide to retain our office we can go to court for you in most cases so that you do not have to return to New Jersey. We handle possession of alcohol tickets written in the following New Jersey beaches:
Sandy Hook / Sea Bright / Long Branch / Deal / Allenhurst / Asbury Park / Bradley Beach / Avon / Belmar / Sea Grit / Spring Lake / Manasquan / Point Pleasant Beach / Bay Head / Lavallette / Seaside Heights / Island Beach / Long Beach / Surf City / Ship bottom / Beach Haven / Loveladies / Barnegat Light / Atlantic City / Long Port / Ocean City / Sea Isle City / Avalon / Wildwood / Wildwood Crest / Cape May

Defense of your New Jersey Disorderly Conduct, Harassment,

Assault, Possession of Marijuana or Trespassing Ticket


Sometimes stuff happens. We understand. We are here to protect your rights and your good name so that one mistake does not ruin your life. In New Jersey there are no non-criminal dispositions to such tickets. If you are charged in NJ with an assault, harassment, disorderly conduct, trespassing, or a marijuana charge they are either a “disorderly persons offense” or a “petty disorderly persons offense.” Either conviction results in a permanent criminal history. When issued such a ticket in New Jersey they are an arrest even if you are not taken into custody. Unlike a traffic summons you cannot mail them in with a guilty plea you or an attorney on your behalf must appear in court. If you ignore the ticket an arrest warrant will be issued for you. If another person is the victim protective orders will be issued in favor of that person.


A NJ conviction will also show up on a criminal history check

Our office will defend you against any ticketable offense in any New Jersey Municipal Court throughout the State of NJ. These offenses include:

  • Assault, NJ Statute § 2C:12-1
  • Harassment, NJ Statute § 2C:33-4Disorderly Conduct, NJ Statute § 2C:33-2
  • Defiant Trespasser, New Jersey Statute § 2C:18-3
  • Possession of Marijuana, New Jersey Statute 2C:35-10a

A word on weed:

Unlike other states, New Jersey has strict laws on marijuana. Possession of the tiniest amount is a crime. Possession of over 50 grams is a serious felony. There is no in between. NJ takes its marijuana laws very seriously. If you have been arrested for possession of marijuana give us a call we can help!


De Minimis Infraction Dismissal

Even if you are caught “dead to rights” there are many defenses at our disposal that we can deploy against your New Jersey “disorderly persons offense” or a “petty disorderly persons offense.” There are constitutional defenses, factual defenses, and defenses on the “elements.” However, one defense that we like to deploy is the statutory right for a judge to dismiss a “disorderly persons offense” or a “petty disorderly persons offense” over the objection of the prosecutor.

Under NJ Statute § 2C:2-11, a judge may dismiss a de minimis infraction charge if the court finds that the defendant’s conduct (a) was within a customary license or tolerance, did not actually cause or threaten the harm sought to be prevented or even if it did it was a trivial infraction, or prevents other extenuations that it cannot be said that the legislature regarded the conduct to be forbidden when the law was written.

Since there is no way to plea bargain for a non-criminal disposition in New Jersey, this statute is clearly a safety valve to prevent unjust outcomes. There are also numerous other dismissal techniques that our office uses to defend your ticket and get you the best possible outcome.
