There has been a push to reduce municipal operating cost in Morris County and this has led to the formation of the Joint Municipal Court of Madison, the Chathams, Harding Township and Morris Township.

The team of DUI defense lawyers at Marshall, Bonus, Proetta & Oliver possess well over 100 years of collective experience successfully battling DUI summonses like yours. The key to victory on your behalf is presentation of a genuine issue that impedes the prosecutor’s ability to prove you guilty beyond reasonable doubt.
