At Marshall, Bonus, Proetta & Oliver, we are uncompromisingly committed to providing the best possible representation to clients charged with criminal and serious traffic violations. With over 100 years of combined experience defending a wide variety of offenses in New Jersey, we have developed a  outstanding reputation where we are well recognized irrespective of where in Somerset County your offense is pending. In fact, the lawyers at our firm have been called upon to serve as legal resources for a number of prominent publications, media outlets, and prime-time television shows, including The Star Ledger, USA Today, The Asbury Park Press, CNBC, ABC, House, and Law & Order.

Our attorneys have earned this distinction as legal authorities through decades of experience and exceptional credentials. For example, our firm’s founder, Jonathan F. Marshall, is a former prosecutor with approximately 25 years experience defending a wide variety of criminal cases. His fellow attorneys include former County and municipal prosecutors and two lawyers who have been practicing in the defense arena for over 30 years. Our training and experience in DWI is also extensive with several on our staff who are among a handful of lawyers who are dual certified in the operation and maintenance of the Draeger Alcotest 7110, the instrument used to test breath samples for blood alcohol content, and as instructors in Standardized Field Sobriety Testing by the National Transportation Safety Administration. It is certainly helpful to our clients that these members of our staff have training in the primary methods for proving intoxication that, in the vast majority of cases, is far superior to that of an arresting officer.

Highly Experienced In The Defense Of Criminal & Municipal Court Charges Throughout Somerset County and Hunterdon County

When you are charged with a criminal offense or a serious motor vehicle violation like DWI, it can feel as though your life has changed in an instant. Whether the charges originate during a domestic violence dispute, at an event, or while on your way home from work, school, or a social gathering, these moments can alter the course of your life forever. Even seemingly minor charges for disorderly persons offenses such as simple assault, or motor vehicle violations such as driving under the influence, can spell negative implications that you never intended nor anticipated. Collateral consequences of these offenses can send shock waves through your life, impacting child custody or visitation arrangements, professional or business licenses, employment opportunities, and even your immigration status.
