NJ Diversion Program Video

“This video on NJ Pretrial Intervention explains how we can use diversionary programs to avoid criminal charges and a trial altogether.”

“Scroll Down To Watch More Videos Below!”

Pre Trial Intervention in the world of lawyers and judges is known as a “Diversionary Program”. Basically, the court is trying to give you a different option OTHER Than going through the process of a trial. That means that the judge and prosecutor might just be willing to OVERLOOK the entire incident that you got yourself into, and you might just be able to get a fresh start.

You’re going to have to pay some money, and you are going to have to STAY OUT OF TROUBLE for a period of time. But, if you do all that (and pass any drug tests), the state will basically wipe the slate clean. You will have no record of the charge and certainly no criminal record. However, there WILL be a record of your arrest.

On the bright side, this won’t show up on job searches but it will show up if you end up in court again. If you have an issue with that, after a certain period of time (usually about 6 months), you can get this expunged from your record.

I can handle any “expungements” that you might need.
