Municipal courts handle a variety of charges including driving violations for speeding, driving under the influence and shoplifting charges. When you are charge with any of these seemingly minor violations, you may not understand that not fighting these charges are the same as pleading guilty meaning you could have a life-long record.

Discrimination & Employment Law

All companies in New Jersey who employ one or more persons are subject to New Jersey laws regarding discrimination in the workplace. In Philadelphia, any employer who has four or more employees is subject to Philadelphia laws. In both cases, these rules apply to age of employees, race, religion, sex of an employee and mental or physical disability. Employees who feel they were unfairly treated in hiring, promotion or firing have the right to seek assistance from an employment attorney who understands the state rules as well as the rules set forth by Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964.
