Why You Need an Experienced Tabernacle Township Defense Attorney
It's never a good idea to appear in municipal court without the assistance of an excellent attorney just because the violation is minor. In New Jersey, even minor offenses can result in probation, fines, and/or jail time, not to mention generating a conviction that will show up in criminal background checks. An experienced attorney might be able to assist you in obtaining a lesser sentence, having charges reduced, or even having the charges dropped. You may also be eligible for a diversionary program such as Pre-Trial Intervention or Conditional Discharge, which would result in the dismissal of charges upon completion, so your criminal record stays clean. An experienced lawyer can help you with the application procedure to increase your chances of being accepted into the program.
