Our attorneys make sure that you understand your options and your rights. We advise you about the best course of action to take — in some cases, it may be better to offer a plea and try to reduce the penalties. In all instances, our experienced lawyers will provide you with the information you need to make decisions about your reckless driving case.

 

If You Are Convicted . . .

The penalties for a reckless driving conviction in New Jersey are severe. You could be facing up to two months in jail, a fine and points on your license. In addition, many reckless driving charges are accompanied by a speeding ticket that could result in even more points on your driving record, higher insurance premiums or license suspension. If you later receive a second reckless driving conviction or are involved in a car accident, the penalties increase. It may be advisable to fight the charges by hiring an experienced municipal court lawyer.

 

How We Help in Reckless Driving Cases

Our lawyers work to have the charges reduced to careless driving or speeding. We make strong arguments for reduced penalties. We challenge any evidence against you that was not legally obtained and question whether the charges fit the evidence. If a speeding ticket is part of the charge, we can assess whether the speed measuring device such as a speed gun was calibrated correctly. We work with prosecutors and judges seeking to reduce penalties after a conviction. If your license has been suspended, we help you take steps to recover it.
