Traffic Offense

TRAFFIC VIOLATIONS 4 POINTS OR LESS-   WE GO TO COURT TO TRY TO NEGOTIATE FOR   NEW "NO POINT" TICKET

 Our office helps people with traffic/ municipal court tickets.  We provide representation on  most Central New Jersey traffic cases.  Motor vehicle violations and criminal charges can cost you.  If you plead guilty by mail or in court for almost all traffic tickets, you will have to pay fines in court and will later receive points on your drivers license.  Both the DMV and your car insurance company will impose surcharges and eligibility points for three years.

         Under the New Jersey Court Rules, a New Jersey  Attorney can negotiate with the Municipal Court Prosecutor to attempt to reduce points.

 An accumulation of too many points, or certain moving violations may require you to pay expensive surcharges to the N.J. Division of Motor Vehicles or have your license suspended.  Don't give up!   We can appear in court for you on most Central New Jersey   traffic violations.

 The following are the types of tickets we have handled to request the new no point ticket. Our attorneys can appear on your behalf without you having to go to court on the following matters:
