Why Hire an Attorney for Municipal Court
Often, people believe that because the Middle Township Municipal Court only typically presides over petty crimes, they can choose not to have a lawyer.

If you're looking for the best possible outcome for your case, then you need to hire an attorney, preferably one with specific experience in New Jersey's municipal court system. Attorney Joseph D. Lento will fight hard to get you favorable results in your case, whether that's getting the charges against you dropped entirely, reduced to a lesser offense, or negotiating with prosecutors for more lenient sentencing on your behalf.
