Farmingdale Borough Municipal Court

If you received a speeding ticket, DUI, or were cited for careless or reckless driving or any other moving violation on I-195, the Golden State Parkway, or anywhere in the jurisdiction of Farmingdale Borough, your only legal option is not to simply pay the ticket, which is the same thing as pleading guilty to the offense. Paying your ticket fines may even seem like the fastest, and therefore, the best way to handle the problem — but you have the right to challenge any ticket or charge against you in municipal court and it may be in your best interest to fight a traffic ticket in order to protect your driving record.

Experienced Farmingdale 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.

At Clark, Clark & Noonan, LLC., we offer aggressive advocacy to protect the rights of our clients facing municipal court and traffic violations offenses.

Drivers have the right to challenge any traffic or municipal offense. Our New Jersey criminal defense and traffic violations law firm has extensive experience in defending drivers against a wide variety of traffic violations including:

Disorderly Persons Offenses

Don’t make the mistake thinking that just because charges handled in Ocean Grove Municipal Court are referred to as “Disorderly Persons Offenses,” they are not serious. Disorderly Persons Offenses are still criminal offenses with lasting consequences if you are convicted. A person convicted of a Disorderly Persons Offense, for example, can be sentenced up to 6 months in Jail and up to 30 days for a petty disorderly persons offense.

In addition, the Municipal Court Judge can impose heavy fines, loss of driving privileges or both. A conviction for a Disorderly Persons Offense or Petty Disorderly Persons Offense means that you would have a criminal record which could effect employment and educational opportunities.

Put Our Legal Experience to Work Protecting Your Record

Our Monmouth County traffic violations and criminal defense attorneys and former prosecutors have successfully advocated for clients charged with traffic violations, and all types of municipal courtoffenses, including:

Pleading to 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. The Farmingdale Borough Municipal Court Judge has the discretion to impose a sentence of up to 6 months in jail for anyone convicted of a criminal offense (disorderly persons offense), and levy hefty fines in excess of thousands of dollars.
