Why You Need a Good Municipal Court Attorney

Municipal courts typically handle minor offenses, yet the repercussions of a conviction can be far from insignificant. You may face jail time, fines, probation, and a criminal record that stays with you for many years to come. Hiring an experienced criminal defense attorney who understands the ins and outs of municipal court proceedings can make a substantial difference in your case's ultimate result. An experienced lawyer can work to get you a more lenient sentence, reduce charges, or even get your charges dismissed. Your attorney can also provide counsel on how to secure alternative solutions for maintaining a clean criminal record, such as Pre-Trial Intervention and Conditional Discharge diversionary programs.
