Long Beach Island Criminal Lawyer and Former Prosecutor
Law Offices of John W. Tumelty
I am New Jersey Supreme Court-certified criminal trial attorney and Long Beach Island criminal defense lawyer John W. Tumelty. I represent individuals charged with criminal offenses, DWI and traffic tickets on Long Beach Island. Long Beach Island is a barrier island and summer vacation destination along the Atlantic Ocean. The access point to the Island is the Manahawkin Bay Bridge, which connects the mainland to Long Beach Island’s 18 miles of beaches. Long Beach Island is located in Ocean County just 25 miles north of Atlantic City, 55 miles southeast of Philadelphia and 75 miles south of New York City.
There are several separate municipalities along Long Beach Island (with Long Beach Township having multiple neighborhoods), listed from north to south:
- Barnegat Light
- High Bar Harbor (Long Beach Township)
- Loveladies (Long Beach Township)
- Harvey Cedars
- North Beach (Long Beach Township)
- Surf City
- Ship Bottom
- Long Beach Township
- Beach Haven
- Holgate (Long Beach Township)
- Beach Haven Inlet (Long Beach Township)
- Brandt Beach (Long Beach Township)
The Long Beach Island municipal courts hear what are typically considered nonindictable or misdemeanor charges. These offenses include DWI tickets, underage possession of alcohol, underage drinking, fake identifications, possession of marijuana, disorderly conduct, simple assault and fighting, possession of marijuana, resisting arrest, shoplifting, obstruction of justice, criminal mischief, criminal harassment, criminal trespass, etc.
As a skilled defense attorney, I have been practicing criminal law for 30 years as both a defense attorney and a former prosecutor with the New Jersey Deputy Attorney General with the Division of Criminal Justice and Atlantic County Prosecutor’s Office.
