Why Hire an Experienced Beverly Defense Attorney

Even if the charges you're facing are minor, you could still be sentenced to jail, probation, or fines—any of which would generate a criminal record that could haunt you for years to come. A good defense attorney, especially one who is familiar with Beverly City Municipal Court, can improve your chances of a more favorable outcome, from having the charges dismissed to negotiating for lenient sentencing. If you are eligible for a diversionary program such as Conditional Discharge or Pre-Trial Intervention, a good attorney can also coordinate your application to ensure you the best chances of acceptance. This can help you avoid jail and prevent you from getting a criminal record.
