About Harrison Township, New Jersey

Located in central Gloucester County, Harrison Township derives its name from President William Henry Harrison. It remained a "dry" township for many decades after Prohibition ended and didn't see its first bar until 2019. Home to around 13,000 people, this township offers residents a quiet, semi-rural lifestyle.

Advantages of Hiring a Harrison Township Defense Attorney

New Jersey criminal defendants who appear in municipal court often incorrectly assume that they don't need an attorney if their offense is minor. However, municipal court judges can still impose significant penalties for seemingly minor offenses--penalties such as fines, probation, and even jail--plus, remember that any criminal conviction will generate a criminal record that can haunt you for years. These bad outcomes are much more likely unless you have a good attorney in your corner.

An attorney with specific experience in New Jersey municipal courts can improve your outlook by negotiating for lesser charges, lighter penalties, and even having your charge dismissed. Your attorney can also help you with the complex application process if you are eligible for Pre-Trial Intervention or Conditional Discharge (programs that will allow you to avoid a criminal record and prevent you from being sent to jail).
