Why You Need a Hi-Nella, NJ Criminal Defense Attorney

It might seem sensible to represent yourself in Hi-Nella Municipal Court, which primarily deals with minor offenses. However, without experienced legal representation, you're more likely to receive more significant penalties like fines and jail time, not to mention a criminal record. A good defense attorney who has municipal court experience will have a better chance of obtaining a favorable outcome on your behalf. Here are some of the benefits that having an experienced attorney can bring to your case:

  • Provide evidence and arguments to support your case and seek prompt dismissal
  • Negotiate for reduced charges and/or penalties
  • Facilitate your application for any diversionary programs that you might be eligible for, including Conditional Discharge or Pretrial Intervention. This can help you avoid jail and a criminal history.
  • Work to keep potentially indictable offenses at the municipal court level

In short, hiring an attorney who has experience in municipal courts can help you access more legal options and achieve a better outcome than you would if you tried to represent yourself.
