Why You Need Legal Counsel in Asbury Park Municipal Court

In New Jersey, even minor offenses can entail serious consequences, including probation, fines, and potential jail time, coupled with the burden of a criminal record that could haunt you for many years. Appearing in municipal court without proper legal representation may result in more stringent sentencing. A seasoned lawyer who is well-versed in municipal court processes can work to minimize your penalties, reduce your charges, or perhaps get the charges completely dismissed. Should you be eligible, your lawyer can also assist you in applying for diversionary programs such as Pre-Trial Intervention or Conditional Discharge, which offer the prospect of maintaining a clean record without undergoing prosecution.
