How Having an Attorney in Municipal Court Can Help Your Case

Many people think they don't need an attorney for municipal court because they are facing a minor offense. But even if you've only been accused of a minor offense in New Jersey, you can still end up facing fines and jail time if convicted, not to mention a long-standing criminal record that could haunt you for years. Without an attorney, your chances of all these negative outcomes are much higher.

By contrast, a skilled attorney who has previously handled municipal court cases will know the best methods to obtain a positive result, whether working to have the charges dropped or negotiating reduced charges or penalties. Likewise, if you qualify for a diversionary program (e.g., Pre-Trial Intervention or Conditional Discharge, which could result in dropped charges), having a good attorney coordinating your application gives you a better chance of being accepted into the program.
