How a Municipal Court Defense Attorney Can Help You

Even if you're only being charged with a minor offense, you could still face jail time, fines, and a criminal record if convicted--and without an experienced attorney in your corner, those outcomes are far more likely. But when you have an attorney with firsthand experience in New Jersey's municipal court systems, your odds of a favorable outcome go up considerably. A good attorney can make sure your rights are protected at every stage of the proceedings, work to get evidence against you suppressed when possible, and negotiate with prosecutors for a more lenient sentence if convicted. In many cases, an attorney may even be able to get your charges dismissed entirely. If you qualify for a diversionary program like Pre-Trial Intervention or Conditional Discharge, the attorney can also coordinate your application to improve your chances of getting accepted into the program. Upon completion of a diversionary program, your charges are dismissed, and you can avoid a criminal record.
