Why Hire an Attorney for Municipal Court

In New Jersey, even minor crimes can have significant consequences if you're convicted--including fines, probation, and even jail time. Moreover, any conviction can stay on your criminal record for many years regardless of the severity of the offense. These negative outcomes are far more likely without an experienced attorney in your corner. An attorney with specific municipal court experience will be familiar with the inner workings of the courts and can use that experience to help you get a more favorable outcome, whether it's getting penalties reduced, charges downgraded, or even getting the charges dismissed. If you are eligible for a diversionary program such as Pre-Trial Intervention or Conditional Discharge, your attorney can coordinate your application to ensure the best chances of acceptance. Upon completing a diversionary program, your charges are dropped, and you avoid having a criminal record.
