Why You Need an Attorney to Represent You in Municipal Court

If you're facing only minor offenses, you might assume you don't need an attorney and can appear on your own behalf in municipal court. However, don't underestimate the severity of your charges; in New Jersey, even minor offenses can result in fines, jail time, and a damaging criminal record--especially without the help of a good attorney. A better strategy is to hire a criminal defense attorney with specific experience in the NJ municipal court system. A good attorney can quite often improve your prospects for a favorable or more lenient outcome--including having the charges dismissed or reduced or negotiating for more lenient penalties. If you happen to be eligible for a diversionary program such as Pre-Trial Intervention or Conditional Discharge (which could help you avoid a criminal record), your attorney can also coordinate your application for the best chances of getting accepted.
