Why You Need Legal Representation in Municipal Court
Even seemingly minor criminal allegations in New Jersey can result in significant consequences if convicted, including jail time, probation, and hefty fines. Moreover, a criminal record stemming from a conviction can have long-lasting ramifications on your life. These negative outcomes are much more likely if you attempt to appear on your own behalf.
An attorney with knowledge of NJ municipal courts can significantly reduce the likelihood of facing the most severe penalties. Your attorney can negotiate with prosecutors and judges to secure lighter penalties, reduced charges, or even complete dismissal of the charges in many instances. If you are eligible for a diversionary program such as Pre-Trial Intervention or Conditional Discharge, a well-informed lawyer can also facilitate your application process to enhance the chances of being accepted into the program.
