About Medford Township, New Jersey

Situated about 35 minutes east of Philadelphia, Medford Township is home to about 23,000 people. Much of the township is located within the New Jersey Pinelands National Reserve, providing the area with an abundance of natural beauty. Settled by the Quakers in the late 1600s, this land was originally sold to Samuel Coles by William Penn, and a village eventually developed on the land. It was considered part of Evesham Township until it separated into its own township in 1847. Today, residents of Medford Township enjoy a suburban lifestyle with easy commutes to Philadelphia.

How an Experienced Medford Township Defense Attorney Can Help You

Even if your criminal charges seem minor, don't assume your penalties will be minor. In New Jersey, even minor offenses can result in probation, fines, and jail time. Your conviction will also generate a criminal record that can create problems for you even years down the road. Hiring a local criminal defense attorney with municipal court experience can significantly improve your chances of getting a favorable outcome in your case. An experienced Medford Township criminal defense lawyer can negotiate for dismissal of the charges or reduced charges/penalties. Your attorney can also explore your eligibility for diversionary programs such as Pre-Trial Intervention or Conditional Discharge, which can result in dismissed charges and help you avoid a criminal record.
