Do You Really Need an Attorney for Municipal Court?

In New Jersey, being convicted of even a minor crime can have long-lasting ramifications, such as jail time, probation, monetary penalties, and a criminal record. Appearing on your own in municipal court without an attorney greatly increases the odds that you'll get hit with a harsher sentence. If you're looking for the best possible outcome for your case, then it's important to seek out an experienced defense attorney. They will be more likely to get lenient penalties, have charges reduced, or even work towards getting the charges dismissed completely. If you're eligible, your lawyer can also help you apply for diversionary programs like Pre-Trial Intervention or Conditional Discharge. Once you finish the program, the charges against you will be gone, and your criminal record will stay clean.
