Traffic Violations

If you have received a ticket for a traffic violation then you need a New Jersey Municipal Court/Traffic Attorney at Juzmeski Law Firm to provide you with devoted and quality legal service to confidently assist you during your Municipal Court proceeding. The Municipal Courts of New Jersey have jurisdiction and hear matters involving motor vehicle violations, traffic violations, quasi-criminal offenses such as disorderly conduct, and city ordinance violations. The Juzmeski Law Firm is committed to ensuring that your Constitutional rights are protected to the full extent of the law.

The penalties imposed on drivers who are cited for traffic violations may be severe and may cause serious difficulty and unwanted complications in your life. Traffic Violations can be costly carrying with them fines, Municipal Court fees, and under certain circumstances may lead to a suspension of your license should you accumulate enough Traffic Violation points on your license, fail to appear in court or pay fines, driving on a suspended license, reckless driving, failure to provide proof of insurance, and other conduct that may lead to license suspension.
