Google map of Borough of Lake Como

There are an extraordinary number of misdemeanor criminal offenses filed in Lake Como when you consider that it measures only .265 square miles and has only 1,759 residents. The primary reason for the lofty disorderly persons offense figures stems from considerable alcohol consumption during the summer months, as well as mishaps at popular Jersey Shore bars like Bar Anticipation, Paul’s Tavern, and McCann’s. If you were arrested for possession of marijuana, attempting to use a fake ID in Lake Como, simple assault, resisting arrest or for any other charge in this Borough, you certainly need to take the offense seriously. A conviction will result in your having a criminal record, having to pay significant fines, and the possibility of being sent to the Monmouth County Jail for up to six months. Here at The Law Offices of Jonathan F. Marshall, we can offer representation by the largest criminal defense firm in the county and multiple former prosecutors, including one who was even a long time resident of the municipality. We have been appearing in Lake Como Municipal Court for over twenty years and, in most cases, avoid a finding of guilt to any criminal offense.
