Why You Need an Attorney for Municipal Court

Don't assume that if you're facing minor charges at Pemberton Township Municipal Court, your penalties will also be minor.

Having a criminal defense lawyer with specific knowledge of New Jersey municipal courts can help you minimize the risk of a bad outcome. A good defense attorney can negotiate with the court and prosecutors for reduced penalties or the charges being dropped.
