How an Attorney Can Help You in Municipal Court
In New Jersey, being convicted of any offense, no matter how minor, can result in serious and long-term penalties such as jail time, probation, fines, and a mark on your criminal record. If you don't have an attorney representing you who understands the municipal court system, it's more likely that you won't end up with a favorable outcome. An experienced defense attorney is more likely to get a better outcome for your case, such as negotiating for lenient penalties, getting the charges reduced, or even working to have the charges dismissed completely. In addition, your attorney can help you apply to any diversionary programs for which you might be eligible, such as Pre-Trial Intervention or Conditional Discharge. Once you complete the program, the charges against you will be dropped and you won't end up with a criminal record.
