Why Hire an Attorney for Seaside Park Municipal Court
It may seem that the offenses handled in a municipal court are minor, so you might believe there is no need to retain an attorney. Nevertheless, even seemingly minor offenses can result in serious penalties like fines and jail time if convicted in New Jersey, not to mention the damaging effects of having a criminal record. Without proper legal representation, you risk receiving more severe sentences for your alleged offenses. An attorney with in-depth municipal court experience can provide you with the experience to craft a defense plan that works best for you. Your attorney can navigate the system to lessen your penalties, reduce charges against you, or even get the charges dismissed. If you're eligible for a diversionary program like Pre-Trial Intervention or Conditional Discharge (which can result in the charges being dismissed with no criminal record), your attorney can coordinate your application for the best chance of acceptance.
