Why You Need an Experienced Mount Laurel Defense Attorney

While Mount Laurel Municipal Court deals mainly with minor offenses, it's never a good idea to appear in court without a good attorney just because the offense is minor. In New Jersey, even minor offenses can result in probation, fines and/or jail time, not to mention generating a criminal record that can cause you trouble by showing up on criminal background checks. A knowledgeable attorney may be able to help you get a reduced sentence, reduction in charges, or even have the charges dismissed altogether. You may also be eligible for a diversionary program like Pre-Trial Intervention or Conditional Discharge, which upon completion, would result in dismissal of the charges and help you avoid a criminal record. A good attorney can assist with the application process to give you a better chance of getting accepted into the program.
