Union NJ Traffic Ticket Attorney
Motor Vehicle Summons in Union New Jersey
There are several factors that translate into over 25,000 moving traffic ticket cases being filed in Union New Jersey every year. The municipality ranks second in population in Union County and also happens to host some of the state’s busiest roadways for motor vehicle traffic including the Garden State Parkway, Interstate 78 and U.S. Route 22. All of this results in the Union Municipal Court processing more summonses and tickets for traffic violations than virtually any other in the area. Our lawyers know this as good as any given that we have an office in the town and have been appearing in the court for over 100 years between the eight litigators at the firm. Here at the Law Offices of Jonathan F. Marshall, we can offer you representation from former municipal and county prosecutors that have defended literally thousands of driving while suspended, speeding, DWI, driving without insurance, leaving the scene of an accident and other traffic tickets in Union Township. Pleading guilty without first consulting with a traffic ticket attorney from our firm is foolish. Indeed, almost every traffic violation carries motor vehicle points and vulnerability to escalating insurance rates although, at the same time, our attorneys avoid conviction in most cases when they are retained.

Motor Vehicle Offense in Union Township New Jersey
When you consider that Union Township has not only its own police force patrolling within its borders but also members of the New Jersey State Police, it makes for a combination for a high volume of motor vehicle offense cases. Just about any charged set forth in the New Jersey Traffic Code can arise in this context. Some moving violations occur more often than not, however, including:
- Driving without insurance
- Reckless driving
- Driving with a suspended or revoked license
- Possession of CDS in a Motor Vehicle
- Leaving the Scene of an Accident
A fine is the penalty usually associated with a traffic violation, but some violations can include jail or imprisonment. For instance, driving a commercial vehicle with a suspended commercial driver’s license could result in a fine and up to 90 days in jail. Noncommercial drivers caught driving while suspended could receive a fine up to $500 for a first offense. If there was an accident causing bodily injury, a motorist driving on a suspended license could be sentenced to 45 to 180 days in jail.
Even if you are only facing a fine, the points assessed against you by the New Jersey Motor Vehicle Commission after a conviction are a good reason to retain us to fight your traffic ticket. A conviction of a moving violation results in points against your license. Accumulate six or more points and the MVC can impose an insurance surcharge on you. Twelve or more points results in the suspension of your driver’s license. In addition, your insurance company can raise your insurance premiums or decline to renew your policy.
