Acting Prosecutor
Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19) Outbreak

Due to the COVID-19 statewide public health emergency, the County of Union is open for essential business only. View alerts and service modifications.

The Union County Prosecutor’s Office Appellate Unit represents the State of New Jersey in various proceedings in the Superior Court Law Division and Appellate Division, the New Jersey Supreme Court, and Federal Court. These proceedings include direct appeals, post-conviction relief proceedings, appeals of municipal court convictions, motions to suppress evidence, expungement petitions, and pretrial intervention (PTI) rejections and appeals. Members of the Unit also conduct legal research and handle interlocutory appeals, both on an emergent and non-emergent basis.

Under acting Prosecutor Ruotolo, the Appellate Unit ceased to serve as a training ground for new assistant prosecutor, but instead is staffed with experienced attorneys who not only excel in appellate practice, but also provide legal support to our trial attorneys to improve the quality of our prosecutions.
