The Advantage of Hiring an Experienced Municipal Court Defense Attorney

In New Jersey, even if you're charged with a minor offense, the consequences could be life-altering, especially without an attorney to help you. Possible penalties include fines, incarceration, and probation, not to mention a criminal record that hounds you for years.

An experienced attorney can improve your chances of a favorable outcome in court, whether by presenting evidence to exonerate you, negotiating for lower penalties or reduced charges, or getting the charge dismissed outright. In addition, an attorney can help you to investigate other ways of clearing your criminal records, such as Pre-Trial Intervention and Conditional Discharge diversion programs.
