Is it likely that my disorderly conduct and noise tickets will get dropped/lowered?

This happened in NJ. I did not get arrested. I received a disorderly conduct and noise ticket. If I get a lawyer, will it most likely be lowered and or dropped? This is my first offense. Please advise.

Odds are you will get some sort of reduction with an attorney and avoid a criminal conviction. Good luck.

There is nothing lower than a noise violation. Disorderly conduct could be criminal or could be an ordinance; there is nothing lower than an ordinance. Nothing is likely to be dismissed unless you have a defense to the charge, but there are no details provided about the incident. You should not post any details in this forum. You should contact a lawyer and discuss.

They will drop the DP to an ordinance. You could get it dismissed with an attorney but maybe not.

You haven't given enough information to be able to respond to your question. You should consult with a local criminal attorney about your fact and circumstances. Most of them offer free consultations and will be able to spot any potential defenses at that time, as well as advise you on probable outcomes.

Good luck.
