DeMichele & DeMichele is pleased to announce that firm shareholder attorney and municipal court practitioner Rick DeMichele was appointed as municipal prosecutor for the Borough of Berlin beginning in January 2016.
The historic Long-A-Coming Depot constructed in 1856. “We're gratified to have this unique opportunity to serve one of Camden County's great historic communities,” said DeMichele, who co-founded DeMichele & DeMichele in 1996. “Berlin's challenges are as unique as its history. I look forward to working with the elected and law enforcement team there to represent the people's interests in Municipal Court.” The charming 7,500-resident strong Borough was incorporated in 1927 but its settled history extends well back into the 19th century. At one point, what was then known as “Long-A-Coming” served as Camden's county seat since it was a vital transportation hub in South Jersey. Its history is also closely tied to our nation's railroad boom of the post-Civil War era. Berlin's Municipal Court convenes every first, second, and third Wednesday morning at 9:00 a.m. The duties of a municipal prosecutor include prosecuting matters ranging from routine traffic violations and DWI/DUI offenses to simple assaults and drug-related crimes on behalf of the state. A resident of nearby Haddonfield, Mr. DeMichele is a seasoned litigator who devotes a substantial part of his practice to family law and personal injury matters; he also currently serves as Municipal Prosecutor of Mullica Township in Atlantic County and Lawnside which is also located in Camden County. When he isn't prosecuting or serving his South Jersey diverse client base, Mr. DeMichele is a national, state and local bar association leader. He has served as a delegate to the American Bar Association's House of Delegates and a trustee of the New Jersey State bar Association. In addition, Mr. DeMichele previously served as a President of the Camden County Bar Foundation and the Camden County Bar Association. Mr. DeMichele is admitted to practice in every state court in New Jersey and Pennsylvania. He is also admitted to practice in the United States Supreme Court and the United States District Court for the District of New Jersey as well as the Eastern District of Pennsylvania.

His criminal practice is limited to defending clients accused of committing New Jersey crimes and traffic offenses outside of those counties. However, our firm's other attorneys continue to represent those charged with crimes and traffic offenses throughout New Jersey.
