What Are the Possible Consequences?
Penalties for municipal court offenses can include fines, probation, community service and up to six months in jail. Conviction on these charges can have a detrimental effect on your record. Today, criminal records are readily accessible to anyone with a computer. With violations on your record, you may find it more difficult to get a job, a place to live, or even a date.
Our founder, Christopher A. Brown, understands municipal court from the inside out. He formerly served as Judge for the Municipal Court of Galloway Township. He has also been a public defender and a prosecutor.
Minimizing Negative Consequences
In all of our municipal court criminal defense work, our goal is to minimize the negative consequences our clients suffer. In some cases, we may be able to get the charges dropped or take advantage of a diversionary program. In others, we may be able to negotiate an attractive plea agreement, for example, probation instead of jail time, or a reduction in fines.
