Why Hire an Attorney for Municipal Court

In the state of New Jersey, even small offenses can translate to serious repercussions like jail time and probation, along with costly fines. A criminal record from these minor charges can affect your life for many years down the road. Without legal representation, you're far more likely to receive more severe penalties. Hiring an attorney with specific experience in NJ municipal courts offers you the best chance at a more favorable outcome. An experienced lawyer can often negotiate with prosecutors and judges to reduce penalties and even get charges dismissed. If you qualify for a diversionary program such as Pre-Trial Intervention or Conditional Discharge, an adept attorney can also coordinate your application to maximize your chances of acceptance.
