About Avon-by-the-Sea

Situated along the Jersey Shore between Bradley Beach and Belmar, the small seaside Borough of Avon-by-the-Sea (also just called "Avon") is home to about 2300 permanent residents. The name "Avon" is thought to have derived either from the name of a popular hotel from the late 1800s or from the Norse explorer Nels Avone, whom legend says landed on these shores some 600 years before the colonies were founded. Today, Avon-by-the-Sea is recognized as a quieter alternative to busier Jersey Shore destinations with its charming Victorian downtown and non-commercial boardwalk.

Why Hiring a Municipal Court Defense Attorney Is Essential

By appearing at municipal court without an experienced legal representative at your side, you may be unnecessarily risking your rights and freedom. While municipal courts mainly deal with minor offenses, the repercussions of a conviction in New Jersey can still be significant--including jail time, fines, probation, and an incriminating criminal record that could shadow you for many years. Hiring a New Jersey criminal defense lawyer with personal knowledge of municipal court operations can greatly reduce your risk of these negative outcomes. The Lento Criminal Defense Team can negotiate with prosecutors and the judge for more lenient penalties, reduced charges, and sometimes even a full dismissal. Moreover, a good attorney can explore alternative solutions to help you maintain a clean criminal record, such as eligibility for Pre-Trial Intervention or Conditional Discharge diversionary programs.
