When you get a New Jersey Traffic Ticket such as speeding or other ticket the first thing you get is points on your license. Each ticket has a point value from 2 points to 8 points. If you want to know how many points your ticket is worth simply click here for a complete list of New Jersey Tickets with Points.
Keep in mind there are tickets that have points that are NOT on that list. For example, if you were cited on the New Jersey Turnpike, Garden State Parkway, Atlantic City Expressway or were given a “Local Ordinance” ticket those have points as well but are not included on the New Jersey Motor Vehicle Commission Point Schedule Website.
Once you get 12 or more points your license will be suspended for 30 days. The best way to avoid a suspension is to get no points. The way to get no points is to have the New Jersey’s best represent you. Get the points off your license. Let us fight aggressively for No Points – No Surcharges. Call Now 1-888-966-8484.
With Garden State Parkway, New Jersey Turnpike, Atlantic City Expressway and Local Code Violations, I hear it all the time…the cop said my ticket was No Points. Unfortunately most cops do not know the point value for the tickets they give and they give out wrong information. I’ve heard from clients the cop said “I’m giving you a break by giving you this ticket INSTEAD of that ticket”. However, if you are begin handed a ticket and it is not clearly some ticket like a seat belt or headlight ticket you can pretty much bet it has points. To see the point value of your Garden State Parkway, New Jersey Turnpike, Atlantic City Expressway and Local Code Violation Traffic Ticket simply click above.
Do not be fooled by local code violations either. We see Local code violations mostly given in Irvington Municipal Court, Newark Municipal Court, Palisades Interstate Park Municipal Court, Clark Municipal Court, South Plainfield Municipal Court, Evesham Municipal Court, and East Orange Municipal Court. They have points too!
Regardless of where you get the Local Code Violation the officer, trying to be nice, will say “I could have given you a red light ticket but I’m going to give you this local code no point ticket…just pay the ticket and it is No Points”. WRONG, WRONG, WRONG! Once you pay these tickets they will be converted into its most similar Title 39 ticket and you will be assessed points.
Don’t pay Garden State Parkway, New Jersey Turnpike, Atlantic City Expressway or Local Code Violations. If you recently received a ticket in New Jersey you should call the experienced lawyers here at Shugar Law so we can aggressively fight for No Points and No Surcharges. Call the Best New Jersey Traffic Lawyers to get you No Points- No Surcharges. Call Now 1-888-966-8484.
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.
Not if we have anything to do with it! Certain offenses carry mandatory Jail. Driving while Suspended (2nd or more offense); Driving While Intoxicated (2nd or more offense), Reckless Driving and No Insurance are just some of the few. We contest all aspect of your tickets to avoid the Jail or have you do community service instead. Let us fight aggressively for you for No Jail. Call Now 1-888-966-8484.
Yes! That is how insurance companies make their money. They hook you with low rates and then surcharge you for minor infractions to make up the difference. Insurance companies are in the business of making money so wherever they can surcharge you to make more money they usually do. We can help you with the insurance surcharges. Typically when we reduce a ticket to NO POINTS it is NO INSURANCE SURCHARGES. Call Now 1-888-966-8484.

We can downgrade your New Jersey Traffic Ticket. The majority of cases are resolved by downgrading your ticket or tickets so you get no points – no surcharges but still pay a fine to the court. If you did exactly what the police are saying you did, then having our office downgrade your ticket to No Points and No Surcharges is probably you best outcome. Never just pay your tickets.
Sometimes clients get multiple tickets such as a speeding ticket, view obstruction and unclear license plates. The same client will pay the view obstruction and unclear license plate ticket because “it has no points”. DON’T PAY THOSE TICKETS EITHER!!! Had the client not paid those tickets we could have got them Dismissed and they wouldn’t have paid the high fines to the court. Let us help you SAVE $$.

Here at Shugar Law we charge flat rate legal fees. The reason we only do flat rates is because we want you to know we are on the same team as you. We want your case over yesterday. We want you to know if we advise you that we should adjourn your case for another day, for whatever reason, you know it is 110% in your best interest and NOT to get another legal fee out of you. We have absolutely NO incentive to ever adjourn your case!
Avoid attorneys who charge per appearance. It is very easy for an attorney to talk legal mumbo-jumbo to convince you that your case needs to be adjourned for another court appearance just to line their pockets at your expense.
Whatever it takes is our mentality to get you the best result even if it means going to court as many times as necessary even if we go to a trial. We never charge a “Trial Fee” because we want you to do what you want to do, not say “I’ll take the deal that I really don’t want to take because I don’t want to pay the lawyer anymore money”. If you end up taking a deal it was because you wanted to take that deal because we are always ready, willing and able to go to trial for you at no additional cost.
If you want a lawyer that is going to do whatever it takes to get you the best possible result then we are your lawyer. To get you the best results we thoroughly review your case, craft our legal arguments based on your specific case and apply our over 60 years of combined experience to get you a dismissal, downgraded charge or resolve at trial.

If you have a Commercial Drivers License (CDL) you are subjected to enhanced penalties if you get tickets in New Jersey. If you have a commercial license then it is probably safe to say that you make your living and put food on your table by driving a commercial vehicle for your employment.
I hear it all the time “If I get points on my license I will lose my job! If I lose my job how does the Court think I am going to pay their fines?” This is a great question that we don’t want to find out the answer to because we are going to avoid the whole thing by reducing your ticket to NO POINTS! No Points – No Surcharges! Hire the Best at what they do. Chances are we can even represent you without you personally appearing in court.
A Commercial License can get Suspended for some of the reasons below:
If you are convicted of a DWI while driving a commercial vehicle, the penalties can range anywhere from a 1-year suspension to being revoked for life. You also face additional fines, penalties, and legal fees.
If you are driving a passenger vehicle with a blood alcohol concentration (BAC) of 0.08% or higher, you will be charged with a DWI and your CDL will be suspended:
1st offense: 1-year CDL suspension, plus 3-12 month basic driver license suspension.
2nd offense: Permanent CDL revocation, plus 2-year suspension of your basic driver’s license.
Answered all of my calls on time and professionally. Were happy to help and got my case solved very quickly. Cheap as well - $340 for a speeding ticket appearance. Thank you for all your help!
I called on a Saturday thinking I would just leave a message and Mr. Shugar answered the phone. I have a commercial license so my license is my life. [...] What I thought was really great is whenever they send you an email they also send you a text so you know to check your email. I knew when they sent letters to the court and knew when they spoke to the prosecutor and knew when the case was resolved. In the end I didn't get any points and they made it very easy. I am very pleased and definitely recommend them.
Like everyone else, I got flooded with mail from every law office after my speeding ticket. I chose Shugar Law Office based on all the positive reviews and they were all spot on. [...] I received text updates each step of the way and emails when needed. The result was the normal fine, which I would've had to pay anyway, and ZERO points on my license. Thrilled over the result and I highly recommend Shugar Law Office. Excellent communication, easily accessible, and top notch service. Thank you!
Great care and concern. They always keep me posted for any updates on my traffic ticket in court via phone calls and text messages. Also, so far, they seem to proceed with the best option available to my benefit.
They did a great Job as advertised. They were nice and listened when I called. I was updated by text messages all along the way. My case was dismissed with no fine. It was easy. I would recommend them.
Working with Shugar Law Office was a seamless and professional experience. I received my desired outcome (points removed) and did not have to do much except give them my case number. Price was reasonable as well. Would recommend to anyone looking for traffic related cases.
