While you may think you can fight your traffic ticket on your own, working with a knowledgeable attorney who understands how to navigate municipal traffic tickets can significantly increase your chances of having the matter reduced or dismissed altogether. Patricia A. Mack Attorney at Law is here to make sure your voice is heard and that you receive all the support you need at each stage of the process.
Weighty Consequences for Traffic Violations
The state of New Jersey takes traffic offenses seriously. Like many other states, New Jersey adheres to a point system when it comes to your driving record. The more points you acquire, the closer you become to having your driver’s license suspended or revoked. Additionally, if you are convicted of a traffic violation, your auto insurance could increase. Any conviction for a traffic violation carries a fine, and you will likely be compelled to pay court costs and other fees. In instances involving more serious offenses, such as driving with a suspended license, you could face potential jail time. Since traffic tickets carry multiple consequences, it’s advised that you work with a skilled attorney who can provide you with trusted counsel along the way.
Representing Your Rights
The first step after receiving a traffic ticket is to check whether there is a required court appearance for your alleged offense. If so, make sure you are aware of the date and time of this mandatory court appearance. Then, reach out to Patricia A. Mack Attorney at Law as soon as possible to begin discussing your situation and preparing your legal strategy. Ms. Mack served as a municipal prosecutor for nearly 20 years, so she has a deep familiarity with the process and can help you understand what to expect and how to secure the best possible outcome.
