Why You Need a Clementon, NJ Criminal Defense Attorney

Since Clementon Municipal Court mainly deals with minor offenses, it might seem reasonable to appear on your own behalf. However, bear in mind that without a strong knowledge of the law, even minor offenses may result in fines or even jail time, not to mention a criminal record. Your chances of a more favorable outcome are much greater when you hire a defense attorney with municipal court experience. Here's what having an experienced attorney can do for you:

  • Provide arguments and evidence to vindicate you and seek prompt dismissal of the charges
  • Negotiate for reduced charges and penalties to minimize the impact
  • Facilitate your application to any diversionary programs for which you may be eligible (including Conditional Discharge and Pretrial Intervention), which can help you avoid jail time and a criminal record

In short, by hiring an attorney with municipal court experience, you have access to more legal options than if you try to represent yourself.

Common Issues We Defend Against at Clementon Municipal Court:

  • Domestic violence
  • Traffic tickets
  • Moving violations
  • DWI
  • Criminal mischief
  • Assault
  • Disorderly conduct
  • Shoplifting
  • Petty theft
  • Trespassing
  • Drug-related charges

Where applicable, if you are facing certain indictable offenses (i.e., felonies), we may also be able to have these downgraded to lesser charges, including disorderly persons offenses, (i.e., misdemeanors) so they can be handled in municipal court rather than superior court.
