There is free street parking a few blocks away from the court. Upon arriving at this court, go to the second floor and check in at the window down the hallway.

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.
