The most common types of New Jersey Municipal Court cases are driving violations. These can range from the simple parking ticket to the serious DUI/DWI case that may have devastating consequences on your life and your family. Except for the most insignificant Municipal Court matters, you should not attempt to handle the matter yourself for various reasons. All moving violations carry with them the imposition of points on your driver’s license if convicted.
An attorney can usually persuade the Prosecutor or Judge to reduce or eliminate most or all of the points that you may be facing. In addition, the fines and penalties may also be minimized with the assistance of a competent and experienced attorney. In other words, you should not attempt to represent yourself, especially if the violation is serious. Call Mr. Montero for a free in person consultation.
