The Importance of Legal Representation in Municipal Court
By choosing to represent yourself in municipal court without the counsel of an experienced legal professional, you may inadvertently put your rights and freedom at risk. While municipal courts primarily deal with minor offenses, the consequences of a conviction in New Jersey can be significant--including jail time, fines, probation, and a lasting criminal record. By hiring a New Jersey criminal defense attorney familiar with municipal court procedures, you can significantly reduce the risk of these negative outcomes. The Lento Criminal Defense Team can negotiate with the prosecution and the judge for less severe penalties, reduced charges, and sometimes even a total dismissal of the charge. Moreover, a competent attorney can explore alternative resolutions to help keep your criminal record clean, such as a Pre-Trial Intervention or Conditional Discharge diversionary program.
