Criminal Defense and DUI/DWI Attorney in Oaklyn, NJ
Criminal and Traffic Ticket Lawyer Representing Clients in the Borough of Mount Ephraim, NJ
At the Law Offices of Michele Finizio we recognize that being named as a defendant in a Municipal Court in the state of New Jersey can be a stressful and unsettling experience. The Municipal Court for the Borough of Mount Ephraim (located in the Oaklyn Municipal Building in Oaklyn, NJ) is no exception. If you’ve received a complaint from the Court, seeking counsel from a reputable, experienced attorney can be invaluable when it comes to helping you assess the charge(s) and determining your defense strategy. You can also take comfort in having the guidance of a lawyer who is well-versed in the ins and outs of the court system—one who has defended individuals accused of the same charges on many previous occasions.
With more than a decade of experience handling cases in Oaklyn and the Borough of Mount Ephraim, we know that defendants typically have questions that court staffers are not equipped or not allowed to answer. In general, court employees can explain how the court works, provide information about your case, provide guidance as to how to fill out forms, and perhaps answer questions about court deadlines. But they can’t help you with important questions like:
- Do I need to hire a criminal attorney?
- Should I go to court?
- What happens if I plead guilty?
- What happens if I plead not guilty?
- If I’m found guilty, what happens?
- Am I going to have to serve time in jail?
- How much is this going to cost?
- Can I appeal a decision of the court?
- How is the situation going to affect my reputation and my future?
If you find yourself pondering questions like the ones above, it’s probably advisable to consult with an experienced attorney who can help you navigate the legal process and advocate on your behalf. Also consider that hiring a reputable attorney as soon as possible can help produce an outcome that minimizes the financial and reputational damage you may incur. As you might expect, reputational and financial damage are often tied together, because a conviction can potentially harm your employment prospects and dramatically limit your opportunities going forward, which in turn can have financial implications for years and even decades to come.
