Why You Need a Good Attorney When Appearing in Municipal Court

Even if you are only being charged with a minor offense in Municipal Court, it is still important to have a good attorney by your side. This is because the consequences of even a simple conviction can be more serious than you may realize. A disorderly persons offense conviction, for example, can result in up to six months in jail and a $1,000 fine. In addition, a conviction will also result in a criminal record that can follow you for years and sometimes make it difficult to find employment or housing.

Obtaining a better outcome for your case is far more likely with the help of an experienced New Jersey Municipal Court defense attorney. By advocating on your behalf, Mr. Lento can negotiate with the court for reduced penalties, downgraded charges, or even complete dismissal of charges.
