NEW BRUNSWICK — It could be an auto accident or a disagreement with a neighbor over a backyard tree. For whatever reason, most people at some point in their lives will find themselves in a municipal courtroom. Knowing what to expect can help prepare you for your day in court.
As a public service, the New Jersey State Bar Foundation presents a free public seminar on the workings of the municipal court on Tuesday, Oct. 4, 7-9 p.m., at the New Jersey Law Center, One Constitution Square off Ryders Lane in New Brunswick.
The seminar will be conducted by East Brunswick attorney William Brigiani, a partner in the law firm of Brigiani & Cohen LLC. Topics of discussion will include a thorough examination of which matters fall under the jurisdiction of the municipal court, what happens from the time you receive a summons or complaint until the end of the process, drunk driving, careless driving, reckless driving, revoked licenses, having no insurance, auto accidents, shoplifting, zoning matters, disputes with neighbors, fishing and gaming permit issues and more.
The seminar is free and open to the public; however, advance registration is required. To register, visit the Foundation online at www.njsbf.org or call 1-800-FREE-LAW. The Foundation’s seminar series is made possible by funding from the IOLTA Fund of the Bar of New Jersey.
