Monroe Police make some DWI and drug possession, shoplifting and other disorderly persons arrests. If you have been charged with a criminal offense or traffic ticket in Monroe township, call my office for a free consultation on your case. I have represented many defendants in the Monroe Township Municipal Court and the Middlesex County Superior Court.
Most DWI charges in Monroe occur from traffic stops for speeding, careless driving and other traffic tickets in the town. Jamesburg is a small downtown area of Monroe that has its own court and local government.

The Township of Monroe was formed in the early 1800s. The town was named and after President James Monroe. The town originally included what is now known as Helmetta, Jamesburg, and Spotswood until those areas left to form their own constituencies.
Frequently known in criminal justice circles simply as “Jamesburg”, the New Jersey State Home for Boys (which was later renamed the Training School for Boys, and is now called the New Jersey Training School for Boys) opened in 1867, originally as something as a rehabilitation institute in the late 1800s. Its role soon shifted however to a place to incarcerate juvenile delinquents. Boxing great Rubin “Hurricane” Carter was once locked up there.
