How an Experienced East Greenwich Township Defense Attorney Can Help You
Don't underestimate the significance of seemingly minor charges. In New Jersey, even minor disorderly persons offenses can result in jail time, fines, and a damaging criminal record--especially without a seasoned attorney to represent your interests. In other words, you should have a good attorney in your corner, even if you're facing a minor issue at municipal court.
A good attorney who understands the municipal court system can greatly improve your chances for leniency regarding the charges against you. The attorney can present evidence to exonerate you of the charges, negotiate to have charges reduced or dropped, or work to help you receive minimum penalties. The attorney can also help you explore other options for keeping your criminal record clean, including diversionary programs like Pre-Trial Intervention or Conditional Discharge for which you might be eligible.
