Insurance and Motor Vehicle Surcharges for Traffic Tickets

There are various surcharges which may be imposed in New Jersey based on your traffic violations and the associated New Jersey Motor Vehicle Points assessed for these violations. The first type of surcharge is imposed by the New Jersey Motor Vehicle Commission (MVC) or the New Jersey Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV). If you are convicted of certain motor vehicle offenses (such as driving while intoxicated) or you accumulate six (6) or more points in a period of three (3) years or less, you will be forced to pay motor vehicle surcharges to keep your license.

In New Jersey, you are required to maintain automobile insurance on your vehicle. As a result, your insurance company keeps track of your driving record and assesses surcharges for moving violations and traffic accidents which you are involved in. The surcharges and the amounts imposed vary depending on the insurance company in New Jersey. Keeping points off of your license is critical in keeping your insurance payments at a minimum. We can help with this!

We Handle All Types of Criminal and Traffic Charges

Criminal charges can be brought in either the Municipal or Superior court. The more severe the criminal charges the more likely they are to be handled in Superior Court, while minor charges are typically resolved in Municipal Court. We have a well deserved reputation for being the best in both arenas.

The severity of your charges is a determination made by the State and is usually based on a variety of factors. Penalties will vary based on the degree of the crime and whether or not there was a criminal conspiracy involved.

Call (732) 842-7773 to speak with one of the Moriartys 24 hours a day, 7 days a week to discuss your charges or you can contact us by e-mail to schedule a free initial consultation.

Kevin is professional, knowledgeable, compassionate and he gets the job done. Being a legal sceptic (I used to think they were all crooks) Kevin restored my faith in attorneys. If you have a serious matter, you want Kevin to represent you.


I hired Mr. Moriarty for a delicate professional matter and was very happy with the entire experience. Both he and his support staff were easy to deal with and ultimately, we won!
