All of these courts handle mostly criminal and traffic matters. But they also have jurisdiction over landlord and tenant disputes, building code violations and small claims. A typical criminal calendar includes matters such as DWI and DUI, petit larceny, assault, harassment, trespass, unlicensed operation and drug possession.

If you are a suspect or arrested for a crime it is vital that you obtain legal representation as soon as possible.

They are typically intimidated by the police and completely unaware of their rights or how to exercise them. The Law Office of Jared Altman can assist you throughout every stage of the proceeding. Criminal defense attorney Jared Altman is thoroughly experienced and will personally handle the details of your criminal or DWI case from its initial investigation through trial and appeal if warranted.
