New Jersey Motor Vehicle Violations Defense Lawyer, including Loss of License for Speeding, Reckless Driving, Failure to Exhibit Documents, Driving While on the Revoked List
Driving is a privilege, not a right. When you commit a motor vehicle violation, it can impact you license to drive. Some traffic tickets are for equipment violations like having a tail light out, and the penalty is a low fine by way of a ticket. The type of violations you really need to be concerned with are more serious driving infractions where the penalties include a possible jail sentence, large fines, and the loss of your license, such as dwi, reckless driving, leaving the scene, speeding 40 miles over the limit, and getting stopped for driving while already on the revoked or suspended list. You need to understand how a conviction will impact your license before you decide how to resolve the moving violation charge. Even for the slightest of charges, when combined with a record of infractions, even something such as failure to exhibit documents — like a registration or insurance — can trigger problems far bigger than the missing document itself. If you are on the end of a ticket for any of the following moving violations, the last thing you should do is take these charges on alone. One wrong move without counsel could cost you big time.

A Testimonial from a Client Who Failed to his Exhibit Insurance Document
“Recently I required the assistance of legal representation for a 39. 3.29C insurance violation. After preforming (sic) research of possible candidates, I came across Mr. Bailey’s profile. I was very impressed with his resume and positive reviews from past clients. Suffice it to say, I contacted his office. First impressions are always lasting impression. Mr. Bailey was prompt in returning my call and made concessions to meet with me on short notice. He was very professional upon meeting him, put me at ease with his easy going demeanor and gave me all the possibilities in which I was facing. He did not sugar coat anything to handle my case. He advised me that he knew what to argue in my case but there were no guarantees. I felt I was in competent hands and I hired him on the spot. Every question, every call and every email was responded to expeditiously. Long story short, Mr Bailey resolved my case with only court cost and a fine whereas I was looking at possible suspension of my driving license, a hefty fine and community service. Mere words can not express the gratitude that I have for Mr. Bailey. Mr. Bailey epitomizes what a lawyer should be. I would highly recommend him to anyone who is in need of an attorney. Excellent attorney. 5 star rating.” — February 2016
Defending a Traffic Ticket or any Motor Vehicle Violation
The defense of a traffic ticket depends on the type of ticket you were issued, your prior history of motor vehicle violations, previous warnings of suspension by the DMV, and whether you want to fight the ticket or negotiate a plea. For certain types of tickets there are specific issues that should be reviewed to make certain the State can prove their case. Your driver’s license abstract should be reviewed to make sure there are no issues that will impact the penalties of pleading guilty. All certifications and credentials of the police officer and the equipment used (such as a radar unit) need to be reviewed for errors. In some cases, it is advisable to hire an expert witness to testify in support of your defense. Among the questions I frequently ask a client who has received a traffic ticket are: What is your license worth to you? If your license is suspended, will that suspension impact your job?
Should I Handle the Traffic Ticket on my Own?
If you are facing ‘consequences of magnitude’ (like jail or a loss of your license), or have a lengthy record of traffic violations, you should consult with and consider hiring a lawyer. When you have a history of traffic tickets, or are facing a serious charge like Driving While Intoxicated (DWI), Reckless Driving, Excessive Speeding, or Leaving the Scene of an Accident, the consequences can include a jail sentence, a loss of license and large fines and financial penalties – and you need to consider whether you will be better protected by hiring a lawyer.
