The Importance of Engaging an Attorney for Edison Municipal Court
Although it may appear that the offenses addressed in a municipal court are trivial, even seemingly minor offenses can lead to severe consequences in New Jersey, such as fines and jail time—not to mention the negative impact of having a criminal record. Without appropriate legal representation, you face the risk of receiving harsher sentences for your alleged offenses. An attorney with municipal court experience can offer you the knowledge necessary to devise a defense strategy tailored to your needs. Your lawyer can skillfully navigate the system to mitigate your penalties, reduce charges, or even have the charges dismissed. If you qualify for a diversionary program like Pre-Trial Intervention or Conditional Discharge (which may result in charges being dismissed with no criminal record), your attorney can facilitate your application to maximize the likelihood of approval.

- Traffic infractions
