When most people are
pulled over by police and cited for a traffic violation such as speeding or
making an illegal turn, they usually pay their ticket and go on with their
lives. However, in situations where the traffic offense may be serious, it is
often smart to hire an attorney to represent you in court. Since serious
traffic offenses can carry such penalties as large fines, suspension of your
driver’s license, and points added to your driving record, having a Hunterdon
County traffic attorney on your side can ensure your legal rights are protected
during the process.
While traffic court is rarely viewed as serious by many individuals, it is nevertheless still a court hearing that can greatly impact your life. In these situations, the officer who issued the ticket will be present to tell their story to the judge. By having an attorney with you at the hearing, you will have legal counsel who can object to any statements from the officer that should not be allowed, allowing your attorney to cross-examine the officer.
Along with this, even if the evidence against you virtually guarantees a conviction, legal counsel from The Law Office of Stephen Williams will have experience handling these cases. Thus, they will be able to help negotiate a much lighter sentence for you, since they will know what others who have plead guilty to similar offenses will have received from the court.
As an example, by having a Hunterdon County traffic attorney representing you, it may be possible to negotiate a sentence where you will still be allowed to drive to and from work, rather than having your driving privileges completely suspended. Whatever the case may be, if you find yourself facing a traffic court hearing for a serious offense, contact The Law Office of Stephen Williams immediately to schedule a consultation about your case.
