Why You Need an Attorney in Lindenwold Municipal Court
No matter how minor your charges may seem, it is unwise to appear on your own behalf at municipal court. Without a good attorney in your corner, even lesser offenses can easily result in fines or jail time, not to mention a criminal record that will follow you for years to come. A skilled criminal defense attorney can help you get a better result at court than you could achieve on your own. Your attorney may be able to provide clear evidence that exonerates you of the charges, negotiate to have the charges dismissed, or argue for reduced charges or penalties. Furthermore, if you are eligible for one of New Jersey's diversionary programs (Conditional Discharge or Pretrial Intervention), a good defense attorney will know how to present your application in a way that gives you the best chance for acceptance into the program. (Completing a diversionary program results in the charges being dismissed with no mark on your criminal record.)
