Let Our Lawyers Defend You Against a Traffic Violation, Speeding Ticket, DUI, or Reckless Driving Charges
If you received a speeding ticket, or other moving violation on Route 9, Route 33, Route 79, or anywhere in the jurisdiction of Freehold Borough, do not assume that your only option is to pay the ticket, which is the same thing as pleading guilty to the offense. This may even seem like the fastest, and therefore, the best way to handle the problem — pay the ticket and simply move forward. But you have the right to challenge any ticket or charge against you in municipal court and protect your driving record.
Even though most moving violations are deemed “civil” offenses, a conviction can still cost you in increased insurance premiums, add points to your driver’s license, and in some cases, result in loss of driving privileges. Before you pay the ticket and accept the charges against you, talk with one of our traffic violations defense attorneys to make sure you fully understand the consequences, and to explore your legal options.
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. It is your right to challenge a traffic or municipal offense and protect your rights. We can help you defend against a reckless or careless driving charges, a DUI, or a speeding ticket, and retain your driving privileges by beginning immediately with a careful analysis of the police investigation and all possible defenses to the charge.
