Logan served as a Municipal Prosecutor in one of the largest and busiest municipal courts in New Jersey for more than 4 years and has handled hundreds of DUI, driving while suspended, shoplifting and drug cases.

Being charged with any criminal or traffic offense can be a frightening experience. You are innocent until proven guilty, but you can be sure that the police and the prosecutor will do their best to see to it that you are proven guilty and punished harshly; whether you are facing a minor driving infraction, or even a DWI, driving while suspended, driving without insurance, reckless driving, excessive speed or any of the more than the 100 offenses under the New Jersey Motor Vehicle code, or even more serious changes you need an experienced defense attorney to represent you.
You may be facing charges of assault, domestic violence, theft, drug charges or charges of involving accusations of fraud or theft. Do not go to court alone and do not be fooled into thinking you can just explain it to the Judge or the prosecutor and your charges will be dismissed.
The rules of evidence and criminal procedure are quite complex and what you don’t know can hurt you with long term consequences, closing doors to employment, state licenses or careers forever.
In addition to a record of a motor vehicle traffic violation, there are serious and long term collateral consequences to motor vehicle convictions, the most common can be the suspension of driving and registration privileges, the mandatory installation of interlock devices in DWI cases and of course, New Jersey Automobile Insurance Surcharges.
There are three kinds of “points” assessed in New Jersey:
– License points which can result in a suspension of your driving privileges for a period of time;
– State surcharge points which can require payments to the New Jersey Motor Vehicle Surcharge Unit each year for a term of years and;
– Insurance points assessed by your insurance carrier.
Failure to pay State surcharges can result in a suspension of your driver’s license. Surcharge points are assessed for driving while suspended, driving while unlicensed, and other traffic violations. Accumulation of 6 points or more in 3 years results in surcharges for several years. A DWI conviction results in surcharges of $1,000.00 a year for three years in addition to the fines and assessments imposed by the court.
You need an experienced advocate when charged with a criminal or traffic offense, whether a seemingly minor traffic offense or a serious felony.
You can rely on the experience of Edward Logan and Rolando Torres, who have handled more than 10,000 matters of every kind in Municipal and Superior Court as both a prosecutor and a defense attorney. The State has an attorney trying to convict you, you need an attorney on your side.
