Why Having an Attorney Matters in Municipal Court

It's not a good idea to represent yourself in municipal court since even minor offenses in New Jersey may still result in fines, jail time, probation, and a criminal record if you aren't adequately defended. Having a criminal defense lawyer with specific municipal court experience can greatly improve your chances for a positive outcome. Your attorney may negotiate for a reduction of the charges (or complete dismissal) as well as for a more lenient penalty. If you qualify for a diversionary program (e.g., Pre-Trial Intervention, Conditional Discharge), your case may be dismissed, and you will avoid having a criminal record. A good attorney can improve your chances of acceptance into a diversionary program.
