Experienced Attorney

I have ten years experience in civil, criminal, and municipal court litigation, as well as real estate, including landlord/tenant matters. Before I was a lawyer, I was a Realtor. I have great practical experience in residential and commercial transactions, landlord-tenant transactions, real-property litigation, and contracts transactions and litigation. I take great pride in my creative, personal service to ordinary people who need legal assistance. Most people don't have a budget for legal services. When something comes up, it's often a hardship to hire an attorney. I recognize that and try to help people in a way that they can afford. One of my mentors encouraged me to have what he referred to as a "vanity of perfection." It's a commitment to work hard to find solutions to a client's issues, and never give up until there's no stone unturned and no argument left to be made.

Michael B. Cooke, Attorney at Law Can Fight Your DUI or Traffic Ticket
April 20, 2020 - Michael Cooke

In New Jersey, driving while intoxicated by drugs or alcohol is a traffic violation, not a criminal offense. Unfortunately, the penalties are still serious, and there is no "plea bargaining" for driving whilel intoxicated offenses under New Jersey law. A conviction for driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs can EASILY result in state monitoring, license suspension, jail time, or worse.
