How Having an Attorney in Municipal Court Can Help You
You might assume that facing a minor offense in municipal courts is "no big deal" and that you do not require an attorney. However, you should know that even minor offenses in New Jersey can lead to fines and jail time, as well as a damaging criminal record, and without an attorney, these outcomes are much more likely. An experienced attorney who has worked with the municipal courts will know the best strategies to get you a favorable result, whether it's working to get the charges dismissed or negotiating for reduced charges or penalties. If you qualify for a diversionary program (e.g., Pre-Trial Intervention or Conditional Discharge), a good attorney can also help you navigate the application process to increase your chances of acceptance. Upon completion of a diversionary program, your charges are dismissed and you avoid having a criminal record.
