Overview of Wildwood, New Jersey
One of the most popular summer destinations along the south Jersey Shore, the City of Wildwood is one of four communities bearing the Wildwood name (known collectively as "The Wildwoods"). This small city hosts a permanent population of about 5000 people, but the population swells up to 50 times that number during the summer months.

Why You Should Have an Attorney at Municipal Court
No matter how minor the charges against you might be, being convicted of a crime in New Jersey is nothing to take lightly. The penalties can include jail time, significant fines, and probation, not to mention a mark that stays on your criminal record for years. Without the help of a seasoned attorney, the odds of getting the maximum penalty goes up considerably.
If you're facing municipal court charges, working with an attorney who has experience in this area will improve your chances of leniency and a positive outcome. A good attorney can fight for lighter penalties, reduced charges, or even have the charges dismissed entirely. If you qualify for a chance to avoid jail and a criminal record through participation in programs such as Pre-Trial Intervention or Conditional Discharge, your attorney can also help increase the likelihood of your application being accepted.
