Most of us rely on our driver’s licenses for many reasons including earning a living, attending school, and attending many other important obligations. If the New Jersey Motor Vehicle Commission (MVC) suspends your license for any reason, you could experience significant interruptions in your life. Fortunately, hiring an experienced license suspension defense attorney in NJ can be very beneficial. The following are only some of the benefits of having a skilled lawyer handle your case:
Court procedures can be complex – Municipal court procedures and rules in New Jersey can be confusing and complicated if you have no experience with the court system. An attorney who regularly handles license suspension cases will be familiar with these procedures and will navigate the courts on your behalf.
You may have additional legal issues – Suspension of your license can happen for a wide variety of reasons, including (but not limited to):
- Driving while intoxicated (DWI)
- Reckless driving
- Not having auto insurance
- Accruing too many points on your license
- Not paying child support
- Not showing up for traffic court
An experienced attorney can often handle any additional tickets or legal matters that you face in conjunction with your suspension or can refer you to someone who can.
You cannot afford to go without a license – Many people need their driver’s license to earn a living and cannot afford the professional repercussions of a suspended license. If you simply continue driving while suspended to get to work and you get caught by law enforcement, you risk very serious consequences including an arrest, costly fines, and a potential extension of your license suspension. Instead, you should hire an attorney to properly reinstate your license so that you can continue to drive legally.
Greater sense of certainty – If your license has been suspended, you are likely unsure of what is going to happen in your case or how to get your license reinstated. If you are driving while suspended, you likely live in constant fear of an encounter with police on the road. Instead of living in a state of uncertainty, hiring an attorney to handle your case can assure you that progress is being made and can give you a greater peace of mind.
