Motor Vehicle Violations
It Pays to Have Experienced Representation
Unlike other states, New Jersey does not consider motor vehicle infractions or traffic violations as criminal offenses. Instead, they are handled by municipal court judges, and drunk driving cases are not eligible for jury trials. This does not mean that such cases carry insignificant consequences, however.
To more fully understand your rights and what is at stake, you should consult with an experienced motor vehicle defense attorney. Attorney Steven J. Feldman has represented clients charged with various motor vehicle violations since 1985. He is a highly respected advocate by the local municipal court judges and motor vehicle prosecutors in Atlantic City and South Jersey for his thorough and dedicated approach in motor vehicle defense cases.
Motor Vehicle Offenses Carry More Than Criminal Penalties
If you or someone you know has been charged with speeding, driving under the influence (DUI) of alcohol or some other traffic-related offense, you may be tempted to simply respond to your court summons and plead guilty.
In so doing, however, you will be subject to the full penalties under New Jersey motor vehicle laws, which could include heavy fines, the loss or suspension of your driver’s license, possible incarceration in the county jail and other collateral consequences such as increased insurance premiums.
As your Atlantic City traffic violations lawyer, Mr. Feldman will protect your rights and driving privileges by working to ensure the state proves its cases beyond a reasonable doubt. He handles all types of motor vehicle infractions, including:
- DUI/drunk driving
- Driving while suspended or on a suspended license
- Driving without liability insurance
- Reckless or careless driving
- Excessive speeding
- Leaving the scene of an accident
- Failure to report an accident
- Minor traffic offenses such as passing a school bus, failure to yield or obey traffic signals, or parking violations
