Jersey City Traffic Ticket Lawyer
Are you aware of all of the consequences related to a traffic ticket? Although it may seem easier and more economical to simply pay a ticket or accept a generic plea deal, this is often not the best approach. You may reduce the points assessed, but will pay excessive fines. In other instances, simply paying a ticket may result in points that will raise your car insurance premiums. Thus, it is advisable to review your rights and the options available with an experienced attorney before accepting liability for a traffic charge. The Reinartz Law Firm represents drivers who receive tickets and citations for moving and non-moving violations in and around Jersey City, New Jersey.
