I just got a mail that has yellow paper with the state of west new york printed on it. It shows my name, address, and complaining witness. I couldn't read what the witness name or the offense because it is not written well. It requiresmy court appearance on 4/12/2018.
Lawyer: Legal Eagle, Lawyer replied 5 months ago

At the date they specified I went for groceries and stopped by a coffee shop but that's it
Lawyer: Legal Eagle, Lawyer replied 5 months ago

Okay.
Lawyer: Legal Eagle, Lawyer replied 5 months ago

Ok, so, based on what you provided, I don't see anything at all in the NJ code that references this particular charge. Because of that, I don't want to waste your time or your money so let me opt out of this discussion and have another expert take over for you. I apologize sincerely.
