Thomas Carroll Blauvelt

About me

My 23 year law practice is focused on personally defending people throughout New Jersey charged with DWI, traffic offenses, NJMVC suspension hearings, criminal and juvenile matters.   I am a licensed attorney in New York for 24 years and New Jersey for 23 years. 


I have represented over 10,000 people in my 23 year law practice and have handled thousands of New Jersey Superior Court,  Municipal Court, and NJMVC cases. 

I have worked as a former New Jersey Municipal Prosecutor for many towns having prosecuted cases in the Flemington Municipal Court, North Hunterdon Municipal Court, Raritan Township Municipal Court, Readington Municipal Court, Bloomsbury/Bethlehem Municipal Court, Union Township Municipal Court, and Allamuchy Municipal Court.  In law school I was a student assistant district attorney with the New York County District Attorney's Office.

I am also a former appointed Public Defender for the Edison Municipal Court.


I spend my personal time with my family, reading, running, and playing golf.

  • Michael Chazen

    Tom is a lawyer that I often see in court defending people on various matters. I would endorse and recommend him without reservation. He is highly regarded and well-respected in the legal community for his knowledge and success in matters involving DWI and criminal charges (in both municipal and superior court.) He is a true advocate that is committed and dedicated to securing the best possible result for the people he represents. His concern for clients is evident and paramount in the way he handles cases. I have always been impressed with his dedication and commitment to defending the accused - so much so - that I have referred his office cases involving co-defendants. Without exception, he does everything possible to secure the best possible outcome, which in turn keeps his clients very happy.
