Why You Should Have an Attorney at Municipal Court

If you have been charged with even a minor crime in New Jersey, the consequences can be significant—from hefty fines and jail time to a damaging criminal record. Representing yourself at municipal court is an ill-advised choice that could increase your risk of receiving maximum punishment. An experienced attorney can give you the best chance of having your charges dismissed or getting a minimized sentence. Furthermore, if you meet certain criteria, they can help you qualify for a diversionary program like Pre-Trial Intervention or Conditional Discharge, which can help keep your criminal record clean.
