How Having a Good Attorney Can Help You in Municipal Court
In New Jersey, it's never a good idea to represent yourself in Municipal Court—no matter how seemingly minor the offense. A conviction could result in fines, probation, jail time, and a criminal record that could impact your life for years. A defense attorney with specific municipal court experience can often help you avoid the worst-case scenario by presenting compelling evidence, negotiating for sentence reductions or lesser charges, and even getting your case dismissed altogether. Additionally, if you qualify for a diversionary program like Pre-Trial Intervention or Conditional Discharge, your attorney can coordinate your application for the best chance of acceptance.
