While remaining rural for many years, recent developments along the harbor and marsh areas have resulted in a population boom for this township, currently hosting about 20,700 permanent residents (and many more who come to their vacation homes in this area during the summer months).

Why a Municipal Court Defense Attorney Can Get You a Better Result
In New Jersey, representing yourself in municipal court is never a wise decision—even for minor offenses. Doing so increases the likelihood of a conviction, which could result in hefty fines, probation, jail time, and a damaging criminal record that can impact your life for years. To make sure you get the best possible outcome in a municipal court case, hire an experienced defense attorney to represent you. A good attorney can present evidence to exonerate you, negotiate for lesser charges, and possibly get the charge dismissed entirely. Your attorney can also explore other options with you for clearing your record, including diversionary programs like Pre-Trial Intervention or Conditional Discharge, for which you may be eligible.
