Are These Charges Serious?
A traffic ticket or a criminal disorderly persons charge can have real consequences for your driving record or your criminal record. At Clark, Clark & Noonan, LLC, our lawyers have successfully and aggressively advocated for clients charged with traffic violations including Drunk Driving, DUI/DWI, Possession of CDS (drugs) in a Motor Vehicle, Speeding, Reckless Driving, Careless Driving, Driving With a Suspended or Revoked License, Leaving the Scene of a Motor Vehicle Accident, and Driving Without Car Insurance.
Pleading to these charges without negotiating or contesting the charges leaves you open to thousands of dollars in fines, loss of driving privileges for two years or more and, in some cases, a county jail sentence.

There Is No Better Way to Safeguard Your Record Than With Our Experience
People charged often fail to realize that you don’t have to plead guilty to the initial charges even if you may have violated the law. In almost every single case we have handled, our criminal attorneys have successfully convinced the Holmdel Township Municipal Prosecutor to amend the charges to a less serious charge, such as a non-criminal ordinance violation.
In other words, we have been able to negotiate pleas to Holmdel Township Ordinances that are not considered crimes or criminal acts on your record.
The same principle of plea negotiations applies to traffic charges. Our attorneys are almost always able to convince the Holmdel Township Municipal Prosecutor to amend a traffic ticket to a non-point or reduced point traffic offense or an offense that does not affect our client’s driver’s license.
A common example in traffic cases is where our client has been issued a summons for careless driving, reckless driving, or speeding. Here, we are usually able to convince the prosecutor to offer a plea to unsafe driving, which is a no point traffic infraction that carries only a fine.
At Clark, Clark & Noonan, LLC. we have the skill and experience to investigate your case, analyze the evidence, and advise you on a course of action that is best for you. Whether we are seeking a dismissal, negotiating the best plea deal available, or defending your legal rights at a trial, we understand the system and how to make it best work for you.
