If you or a loved one has been charged with a crime (whether a misdemeanor, felony, or disorderly persons offense) or received a speeding ticket or traffic ticket, you already know how much stress and anxiety it can cause you. On top of that, you might even be intimidated by the entire courtroom process. Most likely, you are also a little embarrassed at the thought of having to stand up in public while the charges against you are read by a judge.
If you are being charged with a crime, you face the prospect of jail, prison, probation and/or parole. If you are being charged with a non-criminal traffic violation, you are looking at steep fines, points on your license, insurance hikes and maybe even the suspension or revocation of your driver’s license.
