Advantages of Hiring a Wenonah Defense Attorney

If a person is charged with a crime in New Jersey's municipal courts, they may mistakenly believe that they do not require an attorney since most of these offenses are minor. However, municipal court judges can still impose substantial penalties such as fines, probation, and even jail time even for seemingly minor offenses. Also, keep in mind that any criminal conviction will result in a criminal record that will follow you for years. Unless you have a competent attorney on your side, you're much more likely to see the worst-case scenario for your alleged offense.

An attorney with specific experience in New Jersey municipal courts can improve your odds of success by negotiating for lesser charges, lighter penalties, or even getting the charges dismissed. If you qualify, your attorney can also assist you with applying for Pre-Trial Intervention or Conditional Discharge. These programs let you avoid jail time and a criminal record upon successful completion.
