About Woodbridge and Middlesex County, NJ

The Law Offices of Anthony J. Vecchio proudly serves residents of Woodbridge Township and the many communities located in and around Woodbridge and Middlesex County. Anthony represents many clients who have matters pending in:

Woodbridge Municipal Court
1 Main Street
Woodbridge, N.J. 07095
(732) 636-6430

The cases that go through the Municipal Court are:

  • Motor vehicle and traffic law violations (including speeding and DWI)
  • Disorderly and petty disorderly persons charges (including minor drug and drug paraphernalia possession cases)
  • County or municipal ordinance (local law) violations
  • Fish and game law and boating regulation violations.

According to its website, Woodbridge Municipal Court actually processes the second-highest volume of traffic tickets and criminal complaints in the state (trailing only Newark).

Many of these charged offenses involve people who are traveling through the area on major routes such as the Garden State Parkway, New Jersey Turnpike, U.S. Route 1 and U.S. Route 9.

The more serious, or “indictable,” offenses in Woodbridge are prosecuted in:

Middlesex County Superior Court
56 Paterson Street
New Brunswick, N.J. 08901
(732) 519-3200

Those cases include violent crimes, property crimes involving $200 or more, major drug possession and distribution crimes and sexual offenses. Additionally, juvenile delinquency hearings are held in Middlesex County Superior Court.

In some instances, the Middlesex County Prosecutor may choose to downgrade an “indictable” offense to a less-serious charge. Instead of presenting the case to a grand jury, the prosecutor may choose to instead return the case to Municipal Court. Anthony can work with the prosecutor towards getting a charge downgraded or even dismissed altogether.

If you are charged with any criminal offense in Woodbridge Township, you must appear in court. You should receive notice of the date, time and court where you must appear. You must also appear in court for traffic violations unless the ticket you receive indicates otherwise.

You should have a middlesex county lawyer by your side to guide you through the process at all times, protect your rights and, ultimately, seek the best possible outcome for you.

Our Woodbridge Criminal Defense Practice Areas

Because of his deep background in criminal law, attorney Anthony J. Vecchio can represent clients in a broad range of cases, including:

Traffic Violations

You should think twice before simply entering a guilty plea and paying what may seem to be a minimal fine for speeding or any other type of traffic violation you have been charged with in Woodbridge. When you are convicted of a traffic violation in New Jersey, it can add points to your record. If you accrue enough points, you can lose your driver’s license, and you may see your auto insurance rates skyrocket. Anthony can review your case and pursue other options that may be available to you.


A major focus of our firm’s practice is on helping those charged with driving while intoxicated (DWI) in Woodbridge and other areas of New Jersey.  Anthony knows how to aggressively defend these cases. For instance, he may be able to challenge the legality of the traffic stop or the procedure of the breath or blood test that led to the charge against you. If you wish, he can also work with prosecutors to arrive at a plea agreement that minimizes the impact on your life.

Drug Defense

Anthony knows the stakes are high for those charged with drug possession or distribution in Woodbridge. In addition to facing jail time and fines, a person with a drug conviction may ultimately lose out on future job or educational opportunities. Whether you have been charged with an offense involving marijuana, cocaine, heroin, prescription drugs or any other controlled dangerous substance (CDS), you can count on Anthony to provide you with a carefully crafted defense strategy that puts your interests at the forefront.

Other Felonies and Misdemeanors

The Law Offices of Anthony J. Vecchio can assist clients in many other criminal matters, including cases involving violent crimes, theft, sexual offenses and white collar crimes such as fraud, embezzlement, racketeering and tax evasion. Anthony gives every case the serious thought, attention and effort it deserves.

Juvenile Charges

While juvenile crimes have much in common with adult crimes, attorney Anthony understands the important differences in these cases. If your child has been charged with a criminal offense in Woodbridge, he will work hard to fight the charge or seek an outcome that will allow your child to avoid detention and, instead, receive counseling and rehabilitation.


If you have a criminal conviction on your record, it can cost you many opportunities in life – a job, financial aid for college or even the chance to vote in an election or to hold a firearm permit. Anthony can help you to clear your record through the adult or juvenile expungement process. Contact us to learn more about the high priority we give to these cases and our “next-day” turnaround system for each stage.

Why Do You Need a Criminal Defense Lawyer in Woodbridge?

If you have been charged with a crime in Woodbridge or you are seeking an expungement, you may be tempted to represent yourself. However, before you make that decision, consider the benefits you gain from instead choosing to work with an attorney such as Anthony J. Vecchio.

When Anthony takes on your case, he will:

  • Collect and analyze the evidence against you. Anthony will make sure that the prosecution turns over all evidence it plans to use against you and carefully review it to determine the strengths and weaknesses of the case.
  • File all necessary pretrial motions. If any evidence against you was unlawfully obtained, Anthony can seek to have the evidence suppressed, which may ultimately lead to a dismissal of your charge.
  • Seek a deferred prosecution or plea agreement. If you wish, Anthony can help you to explore a pre-trial intervention (PTI) program that may lead to a dismissal of the charges against you. If decide that you want to enter a guilty or no-contest plea, Anthony can work with the Middlesex County Prosecutor’s Office to arrive at an agreement that minimizes the consequences for you.
  • Aggressively fight for you in court. If you choose to take your case to trial, you will have an experienced advocate on your side. Anthony will vigorously challenge the prosecution’s case and use his courtroom skills to put on the strongest defense possible.
  • Handle all post-trial matters. Anthony can determine whether any mistakes occurred at your trial that merit seeking post-conviction relief. He can also work hard to uphold the result of your case if the prosecution files an appeal.

Facing a criminal charge or a traffic ticket can be highly stressful and confusing. Anthony can help to ease your fears by providing the personalized, thorough and effective legal representation you need during this difficult time in your life.
