If you are facing charges for a criminal offense at the Collingswood Municipal Court, consulting with an experienced defense attorney can be incredibly beneficial.

Most non-lawyers are inherently uncomfortable fighting criminal charges in a municipal court where it feels like it is you against the Judge, Police Officers and Prosecutor.

Attorneys for the Collingswood Municipal Court

One of the most pressing questions defendants face is “do I need an attorney?” If we are being honest, certain low-level traffic/parking violations may not require the assistance of a private attorney. However, when you are facing criminal charges that carry possible incarceration or traffic/DUI charges that can result in a mandatory license suspension (or even incarceration in certain situations), then thoroughly researching criminal defense attorneys in Camden County may be in your best interest. It is important that you do not let the Prosecutor, Officers, Court Staff or Judge pressure you into a guilty plea if you are not comfortable. If you have any concerns or questions, please contact our office for an immediate and complimentary consultation.
