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.

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 any more money.” If you end up taking a deal we recommend, it will be in your best interest because we are always ready, willing, and able to go to trial for you at no additional cost.

    My daughter had an accident which she received a reckless driving ticket for. Looking at what could possibly happen since she was still a probationary driver, we both were very nervous. I called Shugar Law Office and they were very nice and responsive. Great amount of communication during the whole process. Received email and text communications of updates and any needed information. She ended up with no points and a small fine. Retainer fee was affordable. As a single mom of 3 I can only afford so much. It was easy to make the payment and put my mind at ease. I highly recommend Shugar Law Office and will definitely call them again if I need the help. Thank you!!!
