The team of Parsippany traffic ticket lawyers at the firm are experts in the criminal procedures police in New Jersey must follow. Those procedures require police officers to have a legally sufficient reason to stop a motorist; they can’t stop a car for no reason. If there is a subsequent search of the vehicle and/or of its occupants, the police must have probable cause to believe a crime was or is being committed before commencing the search. If we determine that the police have violated any procedures, we will bring such violations to the attention of the Parsippany prosecutor and judge and seek to have charges reduced or dismissed.
