Why Hire an Attorney for Municipal Court
Even minor offenses can result in serious consequences in New Jersey if you are convicted. This includes fines, probation, and jail time. Also, no matter the severity of the offense, a conviction can remain on your criminal record for years. These negative outcomes are much more likely if you don't have an experienced attorney on your side.
A defense attorney with specific New Jersey municipal court experience will know how to help you achieve a better outcome. Your attorney can advocate on your behalf to have the court reduce your penalties, downgrade your charges, or even dismiss the charges completely.
