Filing Motions in Northampton County

Criminal charges can be defended in a variety of ways, however, one crucial component of building a strong defense rests with filing legal motions with the court. A motion is essentially a legal action taken with the court to make a demand, or request a specific action to take place with the case. Motions must sometimes be defended in court before a judge in order to be successful. For cases under Northampton County's jurisdiction, motions are filed with the Northampton County Court of Common Pleas, located in Easton, PA.

Filing Motions in Northampton County

When a person faces criminal charges, there are a number of motions available to them. Likewise, if a person is convicted of a crime, there are some motions dedicated to post-conviction actions. These can include:

While these motions are available for defendants to file on their own, or with a public defender, a private attorney with more dedicated time and stronger experience may be able to provide proper attention to a defendant's case. Defensive approaches to filing motions can significantly help work towards the positive outcome of a case or can allow defendants who have been convicted to seek swifter relief.
