Traffic & DUI Offenses

Traffic and Driving Under the Influence convictions in New Jersey are taken very seriously and can have a rippling effect on someone’s everyday life. For instance, Canada may prevent someone from entering the country just because they have a DUI conviction. Many will tell you that if you failed a Breathalyzer test that there is nothing that can be done; at Rebel Brown Law Group we have proven that not to be the case. We examine every step in the process from why you were pulled over to the reliability of the Breathalyzer machine used to test you, to ensure your rights are protected.

Even small traffic violations can have a long lasting effect on ones wallet if not handled properly. Between fines, surcharges, and insurance increases, one could end up paying an amount far greater than the original fine, for years to come. When it comes to traffic violations many people get trapped in an endless loop of license suspensions and fines. At Rebel Brown Law Group we work hard to retain your driving privileges so that you can continue to work, pay off any applicable fines, and move on with your life. Below is a list of the most common traffic violations and the number of points associated with each:
