Hon. Ashlie Gibbons, J.M.C.
Newark Municipal Court
Peter H. Lederman, Esq.
Lomurro Law, Freehold
Certified as a Municipal Court Trial Attorney by the Supreme Court of New Jersey, is a Shareholder in Lomurro, Munson, Comer, Brown & Schottland, LLC in Freehold, New Jersey. For the past 35 years his practice has been limited to representing defendants charged with Driving While Intoxicated and related municipal court offenses. He was involved in two key cases, State v. Chun and State v. Foley, which determined the use of the Alcotest 7110 MK-III breath test device.

Admitted to practice in New Jersey and before the United States District Court for the District of New Jersey, Mr. Lederman is Chair of the Middlesex County Bar Association Ad Hoc Committee on Municipal Court Reform, Past Chair of the New Jersey State Bar Association Municipal Court Committee and Past Co-Chair of the Middlesex County Bar Association Municipal Court Committee. He has lectured at the Jersey State Bar Association’s Annual Convention and the NJAJ Boardwalk Seminar, and also speaks for ICLE and at numerous seminars presented by local bar associations. He authors a bi-monthly op-ed column on municipal courts for the New Jersey Law Journal and in 2006 was the recipient of the Outstanding Municipal Court Practitioner of the Year bestowed by the Middlesex County Bar Association.

Mr. Lederman received his B.A. from Franklin and Marshall College and his J.D. from Fordham University School of Law.

There are over 500 municipal courts in New Jersey, which is why municipal courts are the most common place – and often the only place- where New Jersey citizens encounter the court system. Municipal Court cases are also among the first cases that recently admitted attorneys are likely to handle.

This program will familiarize you with the practices and procedures of New Jersey’s municipal courts. Seasoned practitioners who have handled hundreds of municipal court matters will provide you with an overview of the local court system, review the types of cases that are heard in municipal courts and provide you with practical information for successfully handling a case.
