///What will an attorney do for me that I cannot do on my own?

An experienced traffic attorney will give you options you might not otherwise have and will get you the most favorable result under the circumstances.  If they cannot get your case dismissed then they should focus on skillful negotiation of plea bargains, in order to minimize or avoid costly collateral consequences. If a favorable outcome cannot be reached then they must prepare for trial.  If you are found guilty of an offense that requires jail time, an experienced traffic attorney can sometimes negotiate alternative ways of serving that sentence other than incarceration. The key to successful representation on a traffic offense is to hire a lawyer who is intimately familiar with Municipal Court practices and procedures and regularly appears in your Court.  An experience traffic attorney will also have you out of court quicker since pursuant to New Jersey’s Rules of Court, attorney represented matter are heard first.
