The borough's residents today enjoy a pleasant suburban lifestyle with easy commutes to Philadelphia.

Why You Need Legal Representation at Stratford Municipal Court

Even for minor offenses, it is not advisable to represent yourself in court because such offenses can still result in fines, jail time, and a criminal record. An experienced criminal defense lawyer can work to have the charges dismissed or reduced, as well as negotiate for a reduction in sentence. Your attorney can also coordinate your application for a diversionary program like Conditional Discharge or Pre-Trial Intervention, which upon completion, can have your charges dismissed and help you avoid a criminal record.
