Why Hire an Experienced Magnolia, NJ Defense Attorney
Even if the charges you're facing are minor, you could still be sentenced to jail, probation, or fines—and any conviction will create a criminal record that could hound you for years. A good defense attorney with an understanding of the workings of municipal courts can greatly improve your chances of achieving the best outcome for your case. Your attorney may present evidence to refute the charges, negotiate for dismissal or reduction of the charges, or negotiate for lighter penalties. You might also be eligible for a diversionary program such as Conditional Discharge or Pretrial Intervention, which can help you avoid jail time and prevent a criminal record. A knowledgeable attorney can help you apply for a diversionary program.
