There are many ways to lose your driver’s license or have your driver’s license in New Jersey suspended. Examples include accumulating too many points from traffic tickets, nonpayment of surcharges, even failure to pay child support. A suspension of your license can now also be imposed for a failure to appear when required in a Municipal or County Court hearing, or failure to pay a fine after pleading or being found guilty of an offense. Hanlon Niemann has experience in handling NJ motor vehicle suspension cases and is available to assist you in restoring your suspended license and/or reducing the period of your suspension. An attorney from our office will be happy to discuss your suspension and to determine what is necessary for your suspended license to be restored.
License Suspension: Outstanding Surcharges and Fines
Many people in our state receive notices of outstanding surcharges from the NJ Division of Motor Vehicles, including accrued interest and penalties, many years after they have moved to another state or surrendered their New Jersey license. Just try dealing with the Division of Motor Vehicles. Often it is intimidating, frustrating, and never ending. Contact me personally today to discuss your suspended license matter. I am easy to talk to, very approachable and can offer you practical, legal ways to handle your concerns.
License Suspension: Unresolved Court Cases
Often, we are called upon to assist clients in reopening minor criminal and motor vehicle charges which are unresolved in NJ and which have resulted in a license suspension by NJDMV. If you fail to appear on a summons or charge, your driver’s license is automatically suspended until such time as you appear and resolve the New Jersey matter. The problem is that your case typically will not be reopened until the related arrest warrant is lifted. At Hanlon Niemann & Wright, we’ll work to get your warrant for arrest lifted in many cases, thereby providing immediate value to you. A lawyer from our office can then defend the underlying charges and resolve case (including by affidavit if our clients reside outside of New Jersey) so that a suspended driver’s license can be restored by the New Jersey Division of Motor Vehicles.
License Suspension: Court Order
Did you know that even after a NJ Municipal Court imposes a significant period of license suspension, many times an application can be made to the court for post-conviction relief to reduce the period of time your New Jersey license suspension will be in effect.
