Imagine you own an automobile that you lend to someone. That
person gets pulled over by the police and is suspected of using drugs. The
police decide not only to arrest the person, who might be a son or daughter,
but they confiscate your automobile. Or say ...

What is the chance that a client will do well in traffic court without an attorney in NJ?
Many people try to avoid paying for an attorney when they go to court, especially those who know that the prosecutor will usually offer a downgrade of the initial charge and may even dismiss a couple of the citations to get a conviction on the one the prosecutor thinks important. This may work out alright when a person has a 2 point charge and has a clean record. However, there are many pitfalls.

When I ask potential clients what their driving record looks like, they often do not know, or they under report how many points or citations they have on their license. If we are looking for a 0 point plea for unsafe driving we need to know if they plead before to unsafe driving, and if so when their last unsafe driving convictions occurred. If there were already two then they are not going to be able to plea to a third if it is less than five years from the previous conviction.

Some counties permits prosecutors to accept 0 point pleas other than the onerous unsafe driving, while others, like Passaic County, do not permit anything other than unsafe driving. Attorneys will likely know this.

If there is an accident, you need to know whether there were any injuries or property damage, and know if insurance has been informed of the accident and is on top of any property damage claims against you. You will also potentially need to find out about civil reservations if there is a chance for a civil lawsuit.

Out of state drivers need to know how a conviction under NJ law will reflect in their states. Some states, for instance, like NY do not even pick up on convictions for NJ unless it is for a charge like a DUI, or the driver's license was suspended. Other times, what may be a 0 point conviction here may show up as a more serious offense in another state. For instance, some states do not even assign points. Rather they simply take the number of moving and other violations a driver has received and decides whether a driver's license should be suspended. So even non-point offenses for seat belts or cell phone usage may cause a driver's license to be suspended in another state. It is always best, when living out of state and getting a ticket in NJ to discuss with an attorney from your state to see what types of pleas would be most useful and least damaging.
