Allentown Court Lawyer
A good deal of traffic and speeding tickets are issued in Allentown. I-195 and the NJ Turnpike generate a good deal of these summons. Many of the roads in downtown Allentown are 25 miles per hour, which results in even more speeding tickets. A fair share of DWI and minor criminal arrests including drug possession are also made in Allentown. The judge is the Honorable Bonnie Goldman. The prosecutor is Lee Hutchinson, Esq.
