About Mantoloking, New Jersey

Situated on the narrow Barnegat Peninsula, Mantoloking is a tiny beachside borough that serves as home to about 330 permanent residents--but the population swells to over 5000 during the summer months. Mantoloking was hit especially hard during Hurricane Sandy in 2012, with the storm surge causing a breach between Barnegat Bay and the Atlantic and damaging 90 percent of its homes. However, with restoration well underway, Mantoloking today offers visitors and residents alike a pleasant beach lifestyle with plenty of outdoor recreation opportunities.

Why You Should Hire an Attorney for Mantoloking Municipal Court

Don't assume that because your charges are minor, the consequences will also be minor. In New Jersey, even minor crimes can have lasting consequences if you're convicted, including jail time, fines, and a criminal record. Without an experienced attorney representing you, your chances of suffering the maximum penalties go up considerably. An experienced attorney understands how these municipal courts work and can advocate on your behalf for better outcomes that you likely couldn't achieve on your own--including reduced charges, lesser penalties, or even getting the charge dismissed outright. If you are eligible for a diversionary program such as Pre-Trial Intervention or Conditional Discharge (which could potentially lead to dismissal of charges), a good attorney can also coordinate your application for the best chances of acceptance.
