Why You Need an Attorney for the Delanco Township Municipal Court

However, even minor offenses can result in fines, jail, and/or criminal records if you do not have the right attorney. Having an attorney can increase your chances of leniency and even averting a criminal conviction on your record. A skilled lawyer can:

  • Present arguments and evidence to prove your innocence and get the charges dismissed
  • Negotiate for reduced charges or penalties if applicable
  • Assist you in qualifying for a diversionary program such as Pre-Trial Intervention or Conditional Discharge that could clear your criminal record and save you from jail time.
