How The Lento Law Firm Can Help
Joseph D. Lento is a New Jersey criminal defense attorney with many years of proven experience defending clients in the New Jersey court system. He is specifically experienced in the workings of the municipal courts, so he knows how to ensure his clients' rights are protected when appearing before the judge. While it is your right to do so, it is inadvisable to represent yourself in municipal court because even minor offenses can lead to jail time and/or a criminal record. Attorney Lento can provide evidence to exonerate you from the charges, negotiate for reduced charges and/or lenient sentences, and in many cases can work to get the charges dropped. If you are eligible for a diversionary program like Pretrial Intervention or Conditional Discharge, he can also coordinate your application to give you the best chance for acceptance.
