Benefits of Retaining a Municipal Court Attorney

In New Jersey, even a minor criminal conviction may result in long-term repercussions that could interfere with your life opportunities for years to come. These consequences can include jail time, probation, fines, and a detrimental criminal record. Hiring a skilled defense lawyer with specific municipal court experience enhances your prospects of avoiding these severe penalties. A good attorney can advocate to exonerate you, negotiate for reduced charges and/or penalties, and potentially have the charges dismissed entirely. If you are eligible, an attorney can also assist you in navigating the application process for diversionary programs such as Pre-Trial Intervention or Conditional Discharge, which can avert the establishment of a criminal record if you're accepted into the program.
