How Our Morristown Lawyers Help with NJ Municipal Court Cases
Although a jury does not hear cases in municipal court, an appearance before a municipal court judge allows for defense strategies similar to those in jury trials. A defendant or attorney can file a motion to suppress evidence, seek reduced charges (for example, trespassing instead of simple assault), call witnesses, and conduct a defense similar to a defense in criminal court. It is important to either obtain a dismissal or have the charges reduced to the lowest level in order to limit the penalties both now and in the future when license points accumulate. Our lawyers have the experience and knowledge to obtain the best possible outcome for clients appearing in municipal court.
Of course, this does not mean that our attorneys secure dismissals for every case or get every charge reduced. However, clients can be assured that our attorneys will give them an honest assessment of the situation and provide them with sound advice about their options.
