Why You Need a Lawyer for Voorhees Township Municipal Court
Even if your alleged offense is minor, a conviction can still result in fines, jail time, and a criminal record that can haunt you for years to come. For this reason, it is not recommended to represent yourself in court. A criminal defense lawyer with specific municipal court experience gives you a better chance at a favorable resolution by working to have charges dismissed or reduced, negotiating for lighter penalties, etc. If you qualify for a diversionary program such as Pre-Trial Intervention or Conditional Discharge, your attorney can facilitate your application to improve your chances for being accepted. Upon completion of a diversionary program, your charges will be dismissed, and you will avoid a criminal record.
