• A traffic ticket can be a speeding ticket, careless driving ticket, reckless driving ticket, or any ticket that involves motor vehicle, (DMV, now known as MVC), resulting in points on your license.
  • These tickets can result in points on your license, a fine payable to the court and the potential for individual insurance rates to raise.
  • Entering a plea bargain is encouraged and a necessity.
  • An experienced traffic attorney will know how to discuss the ticket with you and represent you in an effective way in whatever municipal court you go to.
  • The attorney will speak on your behalf, attempt to downgrade or lessen some of your tickets to no point violations and hopefully get some or all citations dismissed.
  • Prior to going to municipal court, consult with an experienced traffic attorney.

Oftentimes I receive phone calls from clients about traffic tickets here in the State of New Jersey. A traffic ticket could be a speeding ticket, a careless driving ticket, a reckless driving ticket, any ticket that involves motor vehicle or DMV – now known as MVC – points on our licenses. Obviously, receiving one of these tickets, whether for the first time or if you’ve had a ticket previously, is a concerning situation as each traffic ticket not only comes along with points, but also a fine payable to the court and the potential for our individual insurance to raise our rates. Here in New Jersey, not only is plea bargaining of these tickets encouraged, it’s a necessity. Hiring an experienced traffic attorney for your moving violations is a must in the State of New Jersey.

If you have been issued one citation or multiple citations, you’re going to walk into the municipal court in the town where you received these tickets facing a number of points and the consequences I discussed previously such as money out-of-pocket to pay the court as well as a raise in your insurance rates.

An experienced traffic attorney will know how to not only discuss the tickets with you, but will know how to represent you effectively in whatever municipal court you go. That attorney will, on your behalf, speak with the municipal prosecutor, attempt to downgrade or lessen some of your tickets to no point violations with no insurance points and no insurance surcharges, and hopefully get some or all of your citations dismissed. Prior to going to court and attempting to fight a traffic ticket or tickets on your own, a consultation with an experienced traffic attorney is a must in your particular situation.
