Why Having a Lawyer Matters in Municipal Court
Appearing on your own behalf at municipal court is not the best choice because without adequate representation, even minor offenses in New Jersey can result in jail time, probation, fines, and a criminal record. A criminal defense lawyer who has experience in municipal courts can significantly improve your chances of a positive outcome. An attorney can negotiate for a reduction in the charges or even a complete dismissal. Your case could also be dismissed if you are eligible for a diversionary program such as Pre-Trial Intervention or Conditional Discharge. An experienced attorney can help with the application process, increasing your chances of being accepted into one of these programs.
