Why You Need an Experienced Washington Township Defense Attorney

Although your summons to Washington Township Municipal Court may be for a minor offense, it's still not in your best interests to appear without a good attorney. Even minor offenses can lead to probation, fines, jail time, and the generation of a criminal record that could impact your life for many years. An experienced attorney can work to mitigate your sentence, reduce the charges, or have the charges dropped altogether. An attorney may also help you apply for a diversionary program such as Pre-Trial Intervention and Conditional Discharge if you're eligible. Completion of such a program would result in dropped charges and prevent you from getting a criminal record.
