Englishtown Borough Municipal Court
Many people do not think to hire an attorney when it comes to a traffic violation or a related offense, and instead choose to pay the fine or plead “guilty” without trying to challenge the traffic citation or moving violation offense. This automatic acceptance is not always in the best interest of the person who has been charged.
Before you accept the charges against you, consider the consequences to your driving record. In some cases, it makes more sense to challenge a ticket than it does to simply pay it. Please don’t hesitate to call 732-303-7857 to find out how Clark, Clark & Noonan, LLC. can help during a free initial consultation. We may be able to get charges reduced or dismissed, so either fewer, or no points are added to your driving record.
Experienced Reckless Driving Defense Attorneys
We will fight to have charges dismissed or reduced from reckless driving (which can be considered a criminal offense) to careless driving which is considered a traffic violation. A conviction on reckless driving charges will almost certainly lead to an increase in your auto insurance rates and adds 5 points to your New Jersey driver’s license. While a conviction of careless driving can also lead to an increase in insurance rates, careless driving only adds 2 points to your New Jersey driver’s license and the penalties are less severe.
Even minor traffic violations and municipal offenses can have a serious impact on your driving privileges and your criminal record. Many people do not think to hire an attorney when it comes to a traffic violation or a related offense, and instead choose to pay the fine or plead “guilty” without trying to challenge the traffic citation or moving violation offense.
