Why You Need a Good Attorney at Fair Haven Municipal Court

Downplaying the significance of a municipal court appearance is a mistake, regardless of the severity of the case. Even minor offenses in New Jersey can lead to serious repercussions, such as probation, fines, and possible incarceration, along with the long-term effects of a criminal record. Representing yourself in municipal court could result in harsher sentencing. An experienced NJ criminal defense attorney can work to lessen your penalties, reduce your charges, or possibly have the charges entirely dismissed. If you qualify, your attorney can also help you apply for diversionary programs like Pre-Trial Intervention or Conditional Discharge, which allow you to maintain a clean criminal record upon completion.
