Criminal Defense Attorney in Marlton, NJ
Criminal and Traffic Ticket Lawyer Representing Clients in Evesham Township, NJ Municipal Court
At the Law Offices of Michele Finizio we know how unsettling it can be to receive a criminal complaint or traffic ticket from a municipal court in the state of New Jersey, including Evesham Township Municipal Court in Marlton. We also recognize that you probably have questions about your options and the steps you need to take to resolve your ticket or case. The good news is that an experienced lawyer can provide legal advice informed by years of experience in New Jersey’s municipal courts.
But that’s just one reason to consult with and retain a reputable attorney. Another is that he or she can answer your questions and help you to navigate the legal system. While we’ve found the employees of New Jersey’s municipal courts to be respectful and diligent, there is a limit to how much information and advice they can provide to defendants. In general, court employees are permitted to tell you how the court works, provide information about your case file, and provide guidance as to how to fill out forms. In some townships, like Evesham, the court even provides answers to frequently asked questions like: “What is plea bargaining?” And “What if I lose my case—can I file an appeal?” But court staffers can’t help you with common questions like:
- Do I need a lawyer?
- Should I go to court?
- What happens at the first hearing?
- What happens if I plead guilty?
- What happens if I plead not guilty?
- If I’m found guilty, what happens?
- Am I going to jail?
- How much is this going to cost?
- Why is my case being transferred to Superior Court?
- How is the situation going to affect my future?
That’s why it’s advisable to consult with an experienced attorney, who can answer your questions, review your options with you, and discuss your case with the judge and prosecutor. Hiring an experienced attorney as soon as possible can also help minimize the financial and reputational damage that might result from a conviction—and possibly even help you avoid a conviction altogether. In fact, reputational and financial damage are often tied together, because a conviction can potentially harm your employment prospects and dramatically limit your future opportunities, which can have financial implications for years and even decades to come.
