An Experienced Traffic Ticket Attorney for New Jersey Residents

When the cops pull you over, the best thing you can do is to be courteous. By being abrasive to the police, you make it very easy for an officer to issue every ticket in the book. If being polite doesn’t work, then you need experienced New Jersey traffic ticket attorneys to defend your interests in a court of law.

Why settle for an attorney who is not passionate about what they do? You deserve the best legal representation to get these points and surcharges off your license. If you recently received a ticket in New Jersey, you should call the expert traffic ticket attorneys here at Shugar Law so we can aggressively fight for no points and no surcharges.

Simply paying the ticket doesn’t make it go away; it makes it worse. You are now subjected to points on your license, high fines, surcharges, and insurance surcharges. To get you the best results, we thoroughly review your case, craft our legal arguments based on your specific case, and apply our 60+ years of combined experience to get you a dismissal, downgraded charge, or resolve at trial.

Avoid Points on Your Driving Record With Our Highly-Rated Traffic Ticket Attorneys in New Jersey

When you get a New Jersey traffic ticket, whether for speeding or another violation, the first thing you get is points on your driving record. Each ticket has a point value ranging between two to eight. If you want to know how many points your ticket is worth, click here for a complete list of New Jersey tickets with points.

Keep in mind some tickets have points that are NOT on that list. For example, suppose you were cited on the New Jersey Turnpike, Garden State Parkway, Atlantic City Expressway, or were given a “Local Ordinance” ticket. In that case, 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 avoid getting points put on your driving record in the first place. The way to get no points is to have one of New Jersey’s best traffic attorneys represent you. We fight aggressively for all of our clients, including those with:

  • Failure to signal tickets
  • Failure to provide proof of insurance tickets
  • Improper lane change tickets (Violation 39:4-88a)
  • Reckless driving tickets
  • And many more driving offenses!

Fighting an NJ Turnpike Ticket With Knowledgeable Traffic Ticket Attorneys

Unfortunately, most cops do not know the point value for the tickets they give, and they give out wrong information. Our clients have dealt with cops that say, “I’m giving you a break by giving you this ticket INSTEAD of that ticket.” However, if you are being handed a ticket and it is not 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, click above.

Don’t pay Garden State Parkway tickets, NJ Turnpike tickets, Atlantic City Expressway tickets, or Local Code Violations. If you recently received a driving violation in New Jersey, you should call the experienced lawyers here at Shugar Law so we can aggressively fight for no points and no surcharges on your license. As traffic ticket attorneys in New Jersey, we’ve successfully won all types of traffic citation cases including, careless driving, failure to provide proof of insurance, failure to signal, improper lane changes, and reckless driving charges.

Do I Have to Appear In Court For My New Jersey Traffic Ticket?

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 due to an illness, physical incapacity, substantial distance to travel.”

Undue hardship is the keyword, and it is very subjective. What one judge believes is an undue hardship, another judge will not. In fact, many judges in New Jersey have arbitrary nonsense rules pertaining to what they believe is undue hardship. We know all of the judges’ little rules, so you can know before hiring whether it is reasonable to anticipate if you will not have to appear.

Will I Go To Jail For My New Jersey Ticket?

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 aspects of your tickets to avoid jail or have you do community service instead. Let us fight aggressively so you can avoid points on your license and the possibility of jail time depending on the severity of the infraction.

Will My Insurance Increase From My New Jersey traffic ticket?

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 avoid expensive fees and surcharges like those you get with a Violation 39:4-88a.

Will My Commercial Driver License Get Suspended?

Those with a Commercial Drivers License (CDL) are subjected to enhanced penalties for getting 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.

A commercial license can get suspended for some of the reasons below:

  • Accumulating too many points on your driver record.
  • Being at fault in a fatal accident.
  • Driving under the influence (DUI) of drugs/alcohol.
  • Unsafe lane changes in NJ.
  • Failing to provide proof of NJ car insurance.
  • Leaving the scene of an accident you are involved in.
  • Excessive speeding and reckless driving.
  • Violating railroad-highway grade crossings.
  • Driving While Intoxicated (DWI) with a commercial license.
  • Local traffic offenses.

If you are convicted of a DWI while driving a commercial vehicle, the penalties can range anywhere from a 1-year suspension of a driver’s license to it being revoked for life. You also face additional fines, penalties, and legal fees.

Can I Get a Traffic Ticket Dismissed?

We always go for a complete dismissal of your New Jersey traffic tickets. No matter if you did it or not, we want to get your traffic tickets dismissed. We have an excellent track record of getting dismissals. Whether your New Jersey traffic ticket can be dismissed is unknown; therefore, you would have to call us to discuss your case to see if your case can be dismissed. 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.

Does Shugar Law Charge Per Appearance?

Here at Shugar Law Office, we charge flat rate legal fees. We only do flat rates because we want you to know we are on the same team. “Whatever it takes to win” is our mentality to get you the best result, even if it means going to court as many times as necessary.

    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!
