Certain motor vehicle violations can cost you. You will have to pay fines in court. A conviction will require you to pay expensive surcharges to the N.J. MVC [Division of Motor Vehicles] If you have too many points or do not timely pay surcharges, your license will be suspended. Don't give up! The Law Office of Kenneth Vercammen can provide experienced attorney representation for Motor vehicle violations. When your driver's license is in jeopardy, or you are facing thousands of dollars in fines, DMV surcharges and car insurance increases, you need excellent legal representation. If charged with a serious motor vehicle violation, such as Driving While Intoxicated, immediately schedule an in-office appointment with a trial attorney. Don't rely on a real estate attorney, public defender or a family member who simply attended law school. When your driving privileges and ability to drive to work is on the line, hire an experienced attorney. Car insurance companies increase rates or drop customers based on moving violations. The least expensive attorney is not always the answer.
