Is Hiring an Attorney for Municipal Court Necessary?

By choosing to represent yourself in Keyport Municipal Court without the counsel of an experienced attorney, you could inadvertently put your rights and freedom in jeopardy. Even though municipal courts primarily deal with minor offenses, a conviction in New Jersey can still carry substantial consequences—including jail, fines, probation, and a potentially long-lasting criminal record. Retaining a New Jersey criminal defense lawyer familiar with municipal court procedures can significantly reduce your exposure to these negative outcomes. The Lento Criminal Defense Team can negotiate with the prosecution and the judge to secure lighter penalties, get charges reduced, and in some cases, get the charge dismissed completely. A good attorney can also explore alternative resolutions to maintain your clean criminal record, such as eligibility for Pre-Trial Intervention or Conditional Discharge diversionary programs.
