Can I Be Represented by a Lawyer in Court Without Appearing

Answer is Possibly. There is a court rule that allows a defendant to be represented by a Lawyer in court without the client physically appearing in Court. Court Rule 7:12-3 permits a Judge to allow a Lawyer to represent a client without their personal appearance in court “if a personal appearance by the defendant would constitute an undue hardship such as illness, physical incapacity, substantial distance to travel”. Undue Hardship is the key word and it is very subjective. What one Judge believes is an undue hardship another Judge will not. In fact there are many Judges in New Jersey that have arbitrary nonsense rules pertaining to what they believe is Undue Hardship. We know all of these little rules the Judge’s have so you can know BEFORE hiring whether it is reasonable to anticipate if you will not have to appear.

Procedure to be Represented by a Lawyer in Court Without Appearing

First we would email or regular mail you a plea by mail that is only valid for this one particular case in the one particular court. We pre-fill out the form for you and all you have to do is hand-write or type in the reason for the hardship (which is usually “distance to court”, “reside in ___ State, or “CDL driver”) if you live out of State. We then pre-screen our request to appear in court without you personally appearing. Some Judge’s will Grant or Deny our request prior to the Court appearance. Other Judge’s have us appear in Court and place on the record the reason for the plea by mail request.

Municipal Court Judge’s Review of our Request to Represent You Without You Appearing in Court
Some Judge’s will Grant or Deny our request prior to the Court appearance. Judge’s do not have to give a reason why. If the Judge denies our request to appear without you personally appearing we would simply notify you that your appearance is required. We are always happy to try to accommodate your schedule and would be happy to try to schedule it when most convenient for you.

Other Judge’s have us appear in Court and place on the record the reason for the plea by mail request. We would appear in court on your court date with the plea by mail that you filled out. If the Judge allows us to complete the representation without you personally appearing then we resolve the case and report the fines along with any additional information to you via email or regular mail. If the Judge DENIES our request to complete the representation without you personally appearing then we simply adjourn/postpone the case and we would notify you that your appearance is necessary the next time we appear. If the Judge denies our request it does not harm the final outcome of your case. Again, we are always happy to try to accommodate your schedule and would be happy to try to schedule it when most convenient for you.

Unfortunately , the Judge has the final say as to whether we can complete your representation without you personally appearing. If I had it my way I would represent every single client (who wished us to do so) without them personally appearing in court. Some clients want to come to court and that is fine as well. But in our experience most clients do not want to come to court and would like our service to include representing them without them personally appearing.
