Driving While Suspended Ticket Reduced to Failure to Show Documents Ticket

I recently appeared at a Bergen County Municipal Court on behalf of a client who had been charged with Driving While Suspended, pursuant to N.J.S.A. 39:3-40, among other traffic violations. For my client, his license was a necessity and his suspension stemmed from an unpaid, and frankly unknown, parking ticket. If my client lost his license due to a court ordered suspension for a Driving While Suspended conviction, he would surely have lost his job. I was able to speak with the prosecutor and conference the case with the municipal judge and eventually obtained a amendment to the charges. My clients Driving While Suspended charge was reduced to a Failure to Show Documents Offense. This amended charge helped my client avoid a $500 fine, $250 yearly surcharges, and a six (6) month loss of license. My client was able to walk away from this experience with his license intact.
