Suspended License

N.J.S.A 39:3-40

Driving on a Suspended License

A conviction of driving on a suspended or revoked license in New Jersey can carry penalties of up to five years in jail and up to $2250 in fines and surcharges.

There is a real and tangible benefit in getting a lawyer to fight traffic charges.  When you have an offense that is as serious as driving on a suspended license, your freedom and your driving priviliges are at risk.  I am ready to discuss your situation.  Contact my New Jersey law office to arrange a consultation. I represent individuals who have received a summons or been arrested for driving while suspended anywhere in New Jersey.
