About Long Beach Township, New Jersey
Offering residents a popular beachside lifestyle, Long Beach Township occupies the unincorporated areas of Long Beach Island, a barrier island off the New Jersey coast, along with several smaller islands within the bay. Due to the narrowness of the barrier island itself, the township boundaries are broken at several points by boroughs like Harvey Cedars, Surf City, and Beach Haven. The township is home to about 3100 permanent residents, but the population of Long Beach Island swells to over 130,000 during the summer months.

The Importance of Having an Attorney at Municipal Court
In New Jersey, even a minor offense could lead to jail time, hefty fines, and the unfortunately lasting impact of having a criminal record. However, having an experienced lawyer specifically versed in navigating NJ municipal courts on your side can greatly improve your odds of obtaining leniency and avoiding these outcomes. A skilled attorney can advocate on your behalf with compelling evidence to prove your innocence, negotiate for reduced penalties or reduced charges, or even arrange to have the charges dismissed. Likewise, if you are eligible for a diversionary program, such as Pre-Trial Intervention or Conditional Discharge, your lawyer can assist with the application process in order to increase your likelihood of being accepted and ultimately avoid a criminal record.
