Why You Need Legal Representation in Haddon Township Municipal Court
Even if your charges appear to be minor, it is not a good idea to appear on your own behalf at municipal court because even minor offenses can lead to a fine, jail time, and a criminal record. An experienced criminal defense attorney can help you achieve a better outcome than you would achieve on your own—whether it's providing clear evidence to exonerate you, negotiating for dismissal of the charges, or working toward reduced penalties. You may also be eligible for diversionary programs like Pretrial Intervention or Conditional Discharge, which can help you avoid a criminal history, and an experienced Haddon Township defense lawyer can assist with the application process to give you the best chance for acceptance into the program.
