Municipal Court: Is a Lawyer Necessary?

Even minor offenses in New Jersey can lead to unwanted consequences like fines, jail time, and a long-lasting criminal record. While you have the right to represent yourself in Municipal Court, doing so comes with risks that could result in more severe penalties, especially for those not familiar with the law. A skilled lawyer with specific municipal court experience can significantly mitigate your risk of these severe penalties. A good attorney will strive to have your charges dismissed or negotiate a lesser sentence on your behalf. Additionally, they can guide you in applying for any relevant diversionary programs for which you may be eligible (such as Pre-Trial Intervention or Conditional Discharge), which could result in the dismissal of your charges upon successful completion of the program.
