If you have been arrested, or summoned into court, you have options. You can fight the charge. For many charges in New Jersey, you can seek a “diversion.” The diversion, when successfully completed, results in the charge being dismissed. You can explore the possibility of a plea bargain. Another option is to just ignore the summons and let the court issue a bench warrant.
Whatever your initial choice, you must then decide whether to handle the matter on your own (“pro se”), or whether to seek assistance from a New Jersey lawyer. If you decide to use a lawyer, you must then select the lawyer, or law firm, to which you will entrust your future.
