New Jersey Traffic Ticket Lawyers

New Jersey Criminal Lawyers Schwartz Posnock

Experienced NJ traffic ticket lawyers

We are New Jersey trial lawyers with nearly 30 years of experience in New Jersey Municipal Court traffic matters, including violations of driving while revoked or suspended, careless driving, speeding, improper turn violations, failure to stop or yield, failure to maintain automobile insurance, leaving the scene of an accident, failure to report an accident, reckless driving, driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs, refusal to take a breath test, and possession of drugs in a motor vehicle.

Too often an individual with a traffic ticket in New Jersey will consider his case as a mere nuisance, and will represent himself at trial or will plead guilty without the assistance of counsel. This is a risky strategy because the collateral consequences of a conviction in Traffic Court can affect your life in ways not apparent at the time you conclude your case.

In addition to substantial fines and penalties, including the accumulation of motor vehicle points, surcharges, and suspension of driving privileges, conviction of a New Jersey motor vehicle traffic offense may increase your insurance surcharges or lead your insurer to drop your coverage. Additionally, New Jersey Municipal Court convictions in some traffic cases can carry community service or a jail term. Conviction of any traffic offense may have a negative impact on your employment, both with respect to your ability to travel to and from work, and, if you have a commercial driver’s license, your ability to work in your chosen field. If you are not a U.S. citizen, conviction of certain traffic offenses may affect your immigration status, even if you are a permanent resident.

OUT OF STATE RESIDENTS

In many instances, our New Jersey traffic lawyers can favorably resolve your motor vehicle ticket without the need for you to appear in court, even for tickets where court appearance is deemed mandatory.

MUNICIPAL COURT TRAFFIC TRIALS AND APPEALS

If the best approach in your case is a trial, then our experienced traffic ticket defense attorneys will apply all of our skill and resources to the ultimate goal of achieving an acquittal.

We have handled appeals from Municipal Court traffic convictions to the Superior Court of New Jersey, whereupon those convictions have been reversed. The time to file an appeal from a conviction in Municipal Court is 20 days from the date of the conviction, so it is important to act quickly and contact us to file the required papers in the Superior Court in order to process the appeal.

DRIVER’S LICENSE SUSPENSION HEARINGS

In the event that you receive a notice of suspension of your driving privileges, our experienced attorneys can help to prevent or reduce any period of suspension of your driver’s license. We will obtain relevant documents, prepare you for your meeting with Motor Vehicle Services representatives, and represent you at the time of your conference. In the event that it is necessary, our traffic lawyers will represent you in an appeal of the hearing officer’s determination before an Administrative Law Judge.
