What to Do If Charged with an Out of State Traffic Violation as a NJ Resident

Our practice is ready to assist out-of-state and out-of-area clients needing immediate legal representation involving traffic and criminal traffic-related matters pending before the Municipal Courts where we are experienced in routinely appearing.

Atlantic City traffic violations attorney Joseph Lombardo explains what you should do if you received a traffic ticket or charge while out of the state of New Jersey and how a lawyer can help.

Out of State Traffic Violations

Did you get a speeding ticket, DUI, DWI or other traffic violation going to or from Atlantic City and have a first Court date in a municipal Court off from the Atlantic City Expressway, Garden State Parkway Turnpike, Route 295 or the North South Freeway and are in need of a lawyer and a postponement?

If you do not have the time to travel back to New Jersey or it is just too far but you want to meet with an attorney who is experienced in handling legal matters before a Court which you must appear before, call our firm. You may arrange to retain our services through a phone consultation with an initial retainment payment to allow our office to enter a not guilty plea on your behalf as our client with the Court and to arrange for a postponement. This will allow our client to avoid missing work time or traveling long distances to meet with us for the purpose of securing our competent representation and a Court postponement.

If any out-of-state or out-of-are client matters involve traffic offenses, including speeding, we may arrange to resolve the summons with the Court by way of an affidavit which allows the client to avoid having to return to New Jersey to appear in Court. In essence we will appear on your behalf to resolve the case with the Prosecutor and subject to your approval by affidavit and the Court’s acceptance of the plea bargain. Aside from the most serious offenses that will necessitate significant trial preparation, many of the routine traffic matters will allow clients the option of meeting in person at the time of their hearing in traffic Court.

Our client services to potential out-of-state or out-of-area clients extend to all areas of our law practice.  Because we are a firm with routine practice before the local Superior and Municipal Courts in our area, we are more than able to aid clients on an emergent basis to assist in immediate legal representation involving criminal matters to conducting evidence preserving investigations of local accident scenes involving personal injury related matters.

It should be noted that it is the policy of some Municipal Courts to require the appearance of the Defendant if a letter of attorney representation is not received more than two days before the hearing date and time. In addition, all charges motor vehicle or otherwise will likely be accepted by the Court by affidavit. In order to determine if your particular case could be resolved without your appearance in Court, it will be necessary to discuss your particular situation with us.
