How an Attorney Can Help at Easthampton Township Municipal Court

Although municipal courts generally handle minor disorderly persons offenses, even these minor crimes can lead to fines, jail time, and a criminal record which could follow you for many years if you are convicted. Having an attorney can greatly increase your chances for leniency or to have the charges dismissed. An experienced lawyer can:

  • Present evidence and arguments to support your innocence and have the charges dropped
  • Negotiate for reduced charges or penalties where applicable
  • Assist you in applying for diversionary programs such as Pre-Trial Intervention and Conditional Discharge. (Acceptance into one of these programs could clear your criminal record and prevent you from going to jail.)
