Weehawken New Jersey Municipal Court Lawyer and DWI defense

The Court is located upstairs in the Municipal Building. Parking is street only and it is difficult on court days. The violations window is also upstairs and this is where you can pay tickets or summons if need be. The prosecutor's office is locates upstairs just outside the court. When you arrive in court you will need to check in with the person at the portable table. He or she will have your file. If you have an attorney, just let the person know and they will direct you accordingly.
