Eatontown Traffic Ticket Defense Lawyer
Former Municipal Prosecutor
The Borough of Eatontown police department is involved in many traffic ticket and motor vehicle summons cases every year. While the majority of the traffic offenses handled in its municipal court are minor in nature, a good portion of the cases also involve serious motor vehicle violations like DWI. If you have been charged with a serious traffic violation, you should definitely give thought to hiring a defense lawyer. You should know that the lawyers at our law firm, the Law Offices of Jonathan F. Marshall routinely appear in Eatontown Municipal Court as it is located just down the road from our main office. You are encouraged to contact our law office and an attorney will be happy to take the time to answer your questions. Do not proceed in the dark as one of our lawyers is available to explain the law free of charge. The following is information which our traffic attorneys have prepared to allow you to better understand some of the more common traffic offenses handled in Eatontown Municipal Court.
Given all of the traffic arties within Eatontown, it is not surprising that a significant number of individuals are served with a DWI summons there every year. A violation of New Jersey’s DWI statute, N.J.S.A. 39:4-50, carries significant consequences including a license suspension of 3 to 12 months for a first offense, 2 years for a second offense, and 10 years for a third offense. There is also mandatory jail under N.J.S.A. 39:4-50 if you are found guilty of a third offense of DWI in Eatontown. Our lawyers have years of experience defending individuals charged with DWI in Eatontown Municipal Court and would be happy to put this experience to work for you.
Driving While Suspended
Driving while suspended is becoming more and more common in Eatontown given the advent of onboard computers in police cars. A driving while suspended ticket under N.J.S.A. 39:3-40, also referred to as driving while revoked, may arise as a result of any number of reasons. Failure to pay surcharges, failure to pay child support, accumulation of motor vehicle points, failure to pay fines, are but a few of the reason you could be facing a driving while suspended ticket under N.J.S.A. 39:3-40 in Eatontown. Irrespective, our defense attorneys are highly successful in obtaining dismissal and/or a downgrade of these offenses in Eatontown Municipal Court and elsewhere.
Driving Without Insurance
When someone is stopped for driving without insurance under N.J.S.A. 39:6B-2, the end result is that they are facing a minimum license suspension of 1 year. The honest truth is, however, that many of the defendants we represent in Eatontown on driving without insurance summonses do not find themselves with such an outcome. Given this reality, one would think that a person charged with driving without insurance would immediately consult an attorney experienced in representing individuals in Eatontown Municipal Court. Unfortunately, this is too often not the case and individuals simply appear on the offense and plead guilty. You deserve every opportunity to avoid the harsh consequences of a driving without insurance conviction under N.J.S.A. 39:6B-2 and the defense lawyers at our office will make sure you have this opportunity.
A summons for reckless driving is something which must be taken seriously as it results in 5 motor vehicle points and can result in a license revocation. The Court in Eatontown gives particular attention to a reckless driving ticket because the offense is indicative of someone acting with disregard of the risk of danger to others. This is the standard under N.J.S.A. 39:4-96 which must be applied by the Eatontown Municipal Court and this naturally garners the attention of the Judge and Prosecutor. We believe that the penalties to which a driver is exposed under N.J.S.A. 39:4-96 if they are found guilty of reckless driving warrants consultation with a lawyer knowledgeable in Eatontown Municipal Court. We hope you consider the defense lawyers at our firm in this regard.
