Shrewsbury Township Municipal Court Sessions
Court hearings for Shrewsbury Township are held at the Red Bank Municipal Court, located on the first floor of the Red Bank Municipal Building at the address above. Court sessions are usually held every Thursday at 8:30 a.m., and are presided by the Honorable William Himelman.
When you arrive for your hearing, please make sure your cell phone is turned off or silenced before entering the courtroom. You will need to check in with the Municipal Prosecutor, and follow instructions from the court staff and the judge. Court hearings begin with the judge issuing an opening statement, after which cases are heard in a specific order. Usually, requests for postponements are heard first, with pleas of not guilty pro se being heard last.
Having a lawyer to defend your charge(s) will allow you to file for a postponement in order to prepare a defense. You will also be more at ease at your hearing, since you can allow your lawyer to speak on your behalf. Since defendants without lawyers are typically heard last, hiring a lawyer can also help you get heard faster.
