Why It's Important to Have a Good Attorney in Municipal Court

Even minor offenses in New Jersey can result in adverse consequences, including substantial fines, jail time, and a long-lasting criminal record. Choosing to represent yourself in Municipal Court is a precarious decision that increases the odds of getting the maximum penalty. A good attorney will work on your behalf either to get charges dismissed or secure a more lenient sentence for you. Additionally, an experienced lawyer can assist you in applying for any diversionary programs for which you're eligible, such as Pre-Trial Intervention or Conditional Discharge, which could lead to the dismissal of your charges upon successful completion of the program.
