License Suspension Attorney in Howell, New Jersey
New Jersey Drivers License Suspension Defense Lawyer in Monmouth County
Unlike many other states, New Jersey does not offer drivers the option of a provisional or restricted license for getting to work or school after a drivers license suspension. That means the suspension of your driver’s license can have a huge and negative impact on your life. Without the ability to drive, how will you get to work? The loss of your license can lead to the loss of your job and the loss of your ability to pay your bills. If you are a student, you may be unable to attend classes.
Don’t let a license suspension damage your life unnecessarily. If the New Jersey Motor Vehicle Commission (MVC) has notified you that it plans to suspend your license, please contact William J. Connelly, III, Esq., as soon as possible. He will request a hearing to challenge the proposed suspension of your driving privileges and work to get the suspension eliminated entirely or to reduce the period of suspension.
Reasons for License Suspension in New Jersey
The New Jersey Motor Vehicle Commission can suspend your driver’s license for many reasons, including:
- DWI/DUI conviction
- Failure to pay child support
- Multiple traffic tickets
- Failure to pay traffic tickets
- Failure to appear in court
- Driving on an expired license
- Failure to carry auto insurance
- Failure to pay license restoration fee
Do Not Lose Your Right to Challenge a License Suspension
Whatever the reason for your proposed license suspension, it is important to act quickly. You have a limited time to request a hearing to challenge the suspension of your license.
The New Jersey MVC does not grant a hearing to everyone who requests one. The request must include the grounds on which you plan to challenge the proposed suspension of your license. Attorney William J. Connelly, III, is experienced in drafting MVC hearing requests. Do not lose your right to a hearing by attempting to take this important first step yourself or with the assistance of an attorney who is unfamiliar with the process.
If the MVC grants you a hearing, you will retain your right to drive, pending the outcome of the hearing.
Mr. Connelly will represent you at the hearing before an administrative law judge, who will decide your case. He will present arguments for why your suspension should be downgraded or dismissed altogether. He may request an alternative to the license suspension that would not have as serious a negative impact on your ability to work and earn a living or pursue your education.
