How can a Lawyer Help?

There are many things an experienced New Jersey uninsured driving defense attorney can do to help.  Most people will have several tickets rather than just the  driving without insurance charge, and the more tickets there are, the more we can help.  Our first goal is to completely defeat the charges and find any defenses.  These might include very technical defenses such as the fact that a police officer didn’t have a reason to pull you over in the first place, or something as simple as you were insured and just didn't have the card in your possession.  Every case is unique, and hundreds of possible defenses may arise.  

Other times it is best to negotiate a deal with the prosecutor.  An experienced defense lawyer stands a far better chance of coming away with a beneficial arrangement than a regular citizen.  The benefits of this may include, reduced fines, no community service, and even saving a defendant’s license when it would otherwise be suspended.

Frequently Asked Questions:

What if I was insured but simply didn't have my card on me?

If your vehicle was insured at the time, and you simply didn’t have the new card with you, it is a far simpler matter to defend.  The usual outcome of these cases is having the charge dismissed.

Is this the same charge as no insurance in possession?

No, that is a different charge, N.J.S.A 39:3-29, and it is in the officers discretion on which to charge you with.  That charge carries no suspensions and is payable via a simple fine.  The fine for no documents in possession in NJ will generally be $150.
