Why You Should Have a Lawyer at Municipal Court

In New Jersey, even minor convictions can lead to substantial fines, jail time, and a long-lasting criminal record which can impact your life negatively. These consequences are more likely if you attempt to represent yourself in court. A criminal defense attorney with municipal court experience can present compelling evidence to prove your innocence, negotiate for reduced charges or penalties, and may even obtain a complete dismissal of the charges. If eligible for a diversionary program such as Pre-Trial Intervention or Conditional Discharge, your lawyer can also assist with the application process to improve your likelihood of acceptance.
