The Importance of Having an Attorney at Municipal Court

In New Jersey, even minor offenses can lead to significant fines and jail time, not to mention generating a criminal record that can stay with you for many years. Hiring an experienced lawyer who is well-versed in navigating NJ municipal courts is your best hope of getting leniency and avoiding these negative outcomes. A good attorney can present convincing evidence to prove your innocence, work to reduce the penalties or charges brought against you, and even possibly have the charges dismissed. Additionally, if you are eligible for a diversionary program like Pre-Trial Intervention or Conditional Discharge, your attorney can coordinate your application to give you the best chance of acceptance into the program.
