New Jersey Traffic Ticket Defense Lawyers

If you have received a ticket, it is very important that you contact an attorney as soon as possible. It is very common for people to delay hiring a traffic/Municipal Court lawyer and then forfeit important rights or incriminate themselves. Remember, you have the right to remain silent and the right to an attorney – do not be fooled into giving up your rights! Even if you believe that you are guilty and you want to cooperate with the police and prosecutor, there is still a great deal of benefit from consulting with a skilled New Jersey Municipal Court/traffic ticket defense attorney. Likewise, if you believe that you are innocent, do not be fooled into thinking that you can explain your side of the story and have the charges dropped. This is how many people inadvertently incriminate themselves.

We handle all types of cases in Municipal Court, including:
• Minor Criminal Matters
• Traffic Tickets
• Drunk driving (DUI/DWI)
• Ordinance Violations/Building Code Violations
• Trucking violations

Municipal Court Ticket Defense Approach (Why Us?)

If you receive a ticket and must appear in Municipal Court, you will need a lawyer to protect your rights. Even if the charge is a relatively minor one, we advise our clients to still consider the case serious because a conviction or guilty plea could seriously affect a person for years into the future. This is especially true in cases of drunk driving (DUI/DWI) and other serious traffic matters because your license could be revoked and seriously affect your ability to earn a living. Our firm will fight vigorously for you and help you achieve the best results for your case. We are skilled at analyzing the evidence that the state intends to use against you and we fight to exploit any holes in the prosecutor’s case. We also spend a considerable amount of time in negotiating with the prosecutor so that our client’s get the best plea offers possible. Once a plea offer is made, we counsel our clients about whether it makes sense to accept a plea offer or take their case to trial, where the prosecutor would have to prove all of the charges beyond a reasonable doubt.

Municipal Court/Traffic Lawyer Free Consultation

If you receive any kind of ticket, please call us right away for a 100% FREE CONSULTATION, on the phone or in our office. We will review the court documents with you and advise you on what we can do to help you. Remember, the prosecutor’s job is to convict people who are charged with traffic violations and other types of violations that are heard in Municipal Court. The prosecutor will not simply listen to your side of the story and drop the case against you. It is important to be represented by a skilled Municipal Court/traffic ticket defense attorney.
