The Benefits of Hiring an Experienced Municipal Court Defense Attorney

Even if you're charged with a minor offense in New Jersey, the consequences could be major if you're convicted, especially without an attorney. Possible penalties include fines, incarceration, and probation—to say nothing of a criminal record that stays with you for years to come.

An attorney with municipal court experience can improve your chances of obtaining a favorable outcome, whether it's by presenting evidence to exonerate you, negotiating for lighter penalties or lesser charges, or getting the charge dismissed altogether. In addition, a good attorney can help you to explore other ways of clearing your criminal record via diversionary programs like Pre-Trial Intervention or Conditional Discharge.
