Since opening his firm in 2014, Mr. Donatiello has represented defendants in all twenty-one New Jersey Counties as well as New York City, Rockland County and Orange County in New York State. Below are a few of his more frequently visited courthouses and some guidance about what to expect when arriving there.

Phone: 973-470-5860

Court Sessions:

Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday & Friday: 8:45 am Monday: 5:45 pm

This is an incredibly busy municipal court as Clifton is a large town in Northern New Jersey through which many highways pass.  There are a number of free parking lots on site.  Upon arriving at court, go to the desk at the front right of the courtroom to sign in.  This will get the file to the prosecutor and speed up your appearance considerably.

 

This court is fairly busy with cases from Route 80 and Route 46.  There is free parking down the hill from this courthouse, which is located in the town municipal complex.  Upon arriving at court, there is no need to get in line as I will be able to speak with the prosecutor upon arrival. 

WAYNE  MUNICIPAL COURT

475 Valley Road

Wayne, New Jersey 07470

Phone: 973-694-1800 x3212

Court Sessions:

Traffic- Tuesday at 2pm Traffic and Criminal- Thursday at 9am & 1:30pm

DWI Trials- Friday at 9am

This is a fairly busy court due to the size of the town, the number of highways which travel through the town, and Willowbrook Mall and William Paterson University being located in the court.  There is a large parking lot located at the court so there is no need to find street parking. Upon entering the court, there is no need to take a number as I will be able to speak to the prosecutor when I arrive. 

 

DENVILLE MUNICIPAL COURT

1 Saint Mary's Place

Denville, New Jersey 07834

Phone: 973-625-8300 Ext 214 or Option 2

Court Sessions:

Every Thursday at 9am

This court is quite busy due to Denville’s location as the HUB of Morris County with Routes 80, 46, and 10 passing through town.  Mr. Donatiello is a resident of Denville, New Jersey. Upon arrival, please sit in the courtroom without signing in, as that is only required for defendants without counsel.  I will speak with the prosecutor upon arrival. Free parking is available on adjacent streets, as the lot is often full.

This court has many cases from incidents originating on Routes 46 and 80, often with New Jersey State Troopers. Attorney cases are most often scheduled for the 4pm session. Upon arrival in court, please sit towards the entrance so that we can go into the hallway to discuss your case without interrupting the courtroom. Parking spaces in the lot are hard to come by, so leave sufficient time to find alternate parking.

 

This court has many cases from incidents originating on Routes 46 and Montclair State University.  Attorney cases are most often scheduled for the 4pm session. Upon arrival in court, please sit towards the entrance and do not get on the line in the hallway to the right, as that is reserved for cases without attorneys.  Free parking is available in the parking lot and on adjacent streets.

BELLEVILLE  MUNICIPAL COURT

Belleville, New Jersey 07109

973-450-3320


Court Sessions:
Tuesday, 9:00am

Wednesday, 9:00am

Wednesday Night (alternate Weds) - 6:00pm

This court is on the 2nd floor of the Belleville City Hall.  Upon arrival, please take a seat in the courtroom, as I will be able to speak with the prosecutor about your case when I arrive.  Parking is available on many local streets, but note that Washington Avenue has parking meters.

 

Please feel free to call me on other municipal courts for personalized guidance about what to expect at your court appearance.
