Criminal Defense and DWI Defense Attorney in Pemberton, NJ
Criminal and Traffic Citation Lawyer Representing Clients in Pemberton Municipal Court
At the Law Offices of Michele Finizio we recognize that it can be stressful and unsettling to receive a criminal complaint from any municipal court in the state of New Jersey, including Pemberton Municipal Court. Moreover, we know that you probably have questions about your options and the steps you need to take to resolve your case. Take comfort in the fact that a reputable lawyer can not only provide legal advice informed by years of experience, but also keep you from having to navigate the court system on your own.
With more than a decade of experience handling cases in Pemberton Municipal Court, we know that defendants typically have a lot of questions—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 file, provide guidance as to how to fill out forms, and perhaps answer questions about court deadlines. But they can’t help you with common questions like:
- Do I need a lawyer?
- 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 jail?
- How much is this going to cost?
- Can I appeal a decision of the court?
- How is the situation going to affect my future?
That’s why it’s advisable to consult with an experienced attorney who can help you navigate the process and advocate on your behalf. Furthermore, hiring a reputable attorney as soon as possible can 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 opportunities going forward, which in turn, can have financial implications for years and even decades to come.
So if you’ve received a complaint from Pemberton Municipal Court we encourage you to contact the Law Offices of Michele Finizio for a free, no obligation consultation as soon as possible. We think you’ll find that our fees are reasonable and that we provide strong yet compassionate representation to our clients. In fact, we have successfully represented countless individuals in Pemberton Municipal Court over the past twelve-plus years, including clients charged with many of the offenses listed below.
