Why Hire an Attorney for Edgewater Park Municipal Court?
Even if the charges against you are minor (as they typically are in municipal court), convictions for disorderly persons offenses in New Jersey can still lead to jail time, fines, and a criminal record, all of which could have a lasting impact on your life for many years. Most people who attempt to represent themselves in municipal court receive more severe penalties than if they had been duly represented. A criminal defense lawyer with specific experience in New Jersey municipal courts will give you a better chance at a positive outcome. An experienced attorney will negotiate for reduced penalties or dismissal of the charges. The attorney can also help you apply for diversionary programs like Pre-Trial Intervention or Conditional Discharge, which can result in dismissed charges so you can avoid a criminal record.
