Why You Need Legal Representation in Mount Ephraim Municipal Court

Even for minor offenses, it is not a good idea to represent yourself in court. Without proper legal representation, you are more likely to receive fines, jail time, and a criminal record, even for lesser crimes. An experienced criminal defense attorney improves your chances for a more favorable outcome—from having the charges dismissed to negotiating for more lenient sentences. If you are eligible for a diversionary program, you may be able to avoid jail time and keep your criminal record clean. A good lawyer can coordinate your application for the program to give you the best chance of being accepted. A good lawyer can also work to keep potentially indictable offenses at the municipal court level which will allow a defendant a better resolution.
