Legal Answers
Q. I live in Colorado and am attempting to resolve outstanding NJ traffic tickets. Can you help, or must I be present?
A: You could have your appearance waive for certain circumstances.

Reach out to a NJ attorney so that they could help resolve this matter for you.
Q. Can I withdraw my guilty plea of eluding police (car chase) if I fired my lawyer due to misrepresentation?
A: A short answer is that you can file a motion to withdraw your guilty plea. However, I suggest you hire an attorney to further guide you on this matter since there a lot to consider such as where you are procedurally (if you were sentenced etc.) with the case and the circumstances of your plea (plea form, plea hearing etc.).
Q. Am I assigned a public defender when arrested?
A: On your first appearance, the court will ask you whether or not you want to hire an attorney. If you cannot afford an attorney, the court will ask you to fill out a form so that a public defender could represent you.
