Why You Need an Experienced Attorney at North Hanover Municipal Court
Although municipal courts handle mainly minor offenses, even minor crimes can result in jail time and a criminal record, especially without the help of a good attorney. By contrast, coming to court with legal representation often enables you to avoid the worst outcomes. An experienced attorney can work to get your sentence reduced, get the charges reduced, or even get the charges dropped altogether. If you qualify for a diversionary program such as Pre-Trial Intervention and Conditional Discharge, you could also avoid having a criminal record upon completion of the program. A good attorney can coordinate your application and improve your chances of acceptance into the program.
