An Overview Of Traffic Offenses And Violations


All Types of Traffic Offenses | Over 20 Years of Experience

A traffic ticket can seem like a minor inconvenience, but it can have a lasting impact on a number of areas in your life. In addition to the costs of paying the fine, you may add points to your driving record, increasing your automobile insurance premiums and even running the risk that your license will be suspended or revoked. An experienced lawyer can minimize the consequences of a traffic citation. We can help.

At the Law Office of Matthew V. Portella, LLC, we have fought for the rights of criminal defendants across all of New Jersey, including people ticketed for traffic violations, for nearly two decades. Far too often, we see people suffer needless consequences because they failed to challenge a traffic charge. We built our practice on a commitment to provide personalized and accessible legal services. We’ll never leave you in the dark. We will immediately inform you of any developments in your case. We’ll always communicate with you in plain English so that you clearly understand your rights and your options.

Our Traffic Crimes Defense Practice

When you hire us to defend you against a traffic charge, we will conduct a thorough investigation of the facts and circumstances of your case, traveling to the scene of the citation if necessary. We will review police reports and interview witnesses so that we have a thorough understanding of the allegations against you, as well as the evidence in your defense. We’ll prepare and file all necessary documentation to protect your rights, and will be your voice in all proceedings or hearings.

We provide aggressive defense against all types of traffic charges, including:

  • Speeding
  • Reckless driving
  • Driving on a revoked or suspended license
  • Distracted driving
  • DWI/DUI
  • Driving without proper insurance
  • Leaving the scene of an accident/failure to report an accident
  • Improper use of a cell phone while driving
