Local municipal courts handle relatively minor infractions and many people may try to handle their cases themselves if summoned to municipal court. Even though the legal system considers municipal court cases to be small, the consequences still include large fines, possible jail time, license suspension, missed time from work, and losing a job upon conviction. To help minimize adverse consequences in a municipal court case, consider hiring an experienced municipal court attorney to represent you.
