Contact a New Jersey Traffic Lawyer to Assist with Your Citation
While most people know that racking up too many “points” on their license can eventually lead to the loss of their driving privileges, what most New Jersey residents do not know is that some traffic offenses can carry a driver’s license suspension even for a single first-time offense. In addition, while most traffic offenses (including DUI) are not crimes under New Jersey law, certain driving-related offenses can result in criminal prosecution.
If you have received a traffic citation in Hackensack, or if you have been charged with a traffic crime under New Jersey law, it is important that you discuss your case with an attorney. While losing your license is one possibility, a conviction could potentially result in other penalties and trigger other non-judicial consequences as well. With more than a decade of experience handling traffic offense cases and criminal trials in Bergen County and throughout New Jersey, defense attorney Scott Gorman can protect you, and we encourage you to contact us promptly at 201-489-9199 for a free and confidential consultation.
