Why You Need a Chesilhurst, NJ Criminal Defense Attorney

Appearing at Chesilhurst Municipal Court may not seem like a big deal since the court primarily deals with lesser offenses.

When you hire an attorney like Joseph D. Lento who understands the workings of the municipal court system, you have a much better chance at a more favorable outcome, whether it's having the charges dismissed, negotiating for reduced penalties, etc. You may also qualify for a state diversionary program such as Conditional Discharge or Pretrial Intervention, which could help you avoid a criminal record.
