Brielle Borough Driving While Suspended Attorney

At McGuckin Law, we understand the processes that the state undertakes to prove that various traffic offenses and crimes have been committed. For example, in order to prove that somebody drove on a suspended license, the prosecution must demonstrate that the driving privileges were in fact revoked and that the individual was notified of the revocation. Often, people are unaware that their driving privileges are suspended due to surcharges and other administrative actions taken by the New Jersey Motor Vehicle Commission.

At McGuckin Law, we know how inconvenient the accumulation of points can be on your license, so it is our sole focus to reduce or dismiss these charges all together. We are well accustomed to assisting our clients facing traffic charges such as:

  • Reckless Driving
  • Speeding
  • Careless Driving
  • CDS in a Motor Vehicle
  • Failure to Maintain Lanes
  • Leaving the Scene of an Accident

New Jersey takes drinking and driving very seriously and does not discriminate between the influence of Drugs or Alcohol.

Brielle Borough Possession of a Weapon Lawyer

Brielle Criminal Offenses will be held at either its Municipal Court, or Monmouth County Superior Court depending on the degree of the offense. Disorderly Persons Offenses include Trespassing, Lewdness, Resisting arrest, Shoplifting ($199 or less) and Simple Assault. DP’s are heard in the Brielle Municipal Court and are typically subject to community service and up to $1,000 in fines and 6 months incarceration.

On the other hand, Indictable Offenses are heard in the Superior Court. Indictable offenses include charges such as Aggravated Assault, Robbery, Burglary and Credit Card Theft. These crimes are prone to heavier penalties and vary depending on the degree. Fines can range from $10,000 to $200,000, while sentencing can range from eighteen months to thirty years, to life. Indictable Offenses are serious. At McGuckin law we take a proactive stance on proving your innocence, while picking apart whatever evidence the case may have against you. Sometimes this calls for suppression of evidence, and in cases where evidence is insufficient, we will file a motion. Additionally there are a number of Diversionary Programs such as the Mental Health or Veterans Diversionary Program, Pre-Trial Intervention and Conditional Dismissal. We will make a case for your eligibility into such programs while also pushing for innovative alternative sentencing options to better serve your interests and avoid much harsher penalties.
