Why Having a Good Attorney is Important in Municipal Court

Even if your case is minor, appearing in your own defense before a municipal court judge is never a good idea. Even minor offenses in New Jersey may generate a criminal record if you're convicted, not to mention fines, probation, and/or jail time. A criminal defense attorney who has previously represented clients in municipal courts may significantly improve your chances of obtaining a favorable outcome. A good attorney can negotiate on your behalf for a lower sentence, to have your charges lowered, or even a complete dismissal of the charges in certain situations. An attorney can also help you apply for diversionary programs, such as Pre-Trial Intervention or Conditional Discharge, which may help you avoid a criminal record if you're eligible and are accepted into the program.
