Knowledgeable Criminal Defense Lawyer Defends College Students in Galloway Township

Galloway Township, located in Southern New Jersey is in Atlantic County. It is the largest, in square miles, of any town in the entire State of New Jersey. Galloway is home to Stockton University, a four-year liberal arts college.

The township was founded in 1774 from parts of several other towns including Egg Harbor township (which, at the time, was part of neighboring Gloucester County, NJ), Mullica Township, Egg Harbor City, Absecon, Brigantine and Port Republic

The Lenape Native Americans settled in Galloway Township and remained for thousands of years; they remained strong and tied to their land even as the Europeans were invading.

Due to the proximity of the many towns, students in Galloway attend the Galloway Township Public Schools. However, depending where in Galloway they live, high schoolers may attend Absegami High School or Cedar Creek High School. The Atlantic County Institute of Technology and Charter-Tech High School for the Performing Arts in Somers Point are also options for teens.
