Doubled Penalties for Texting and Driving in New Jersey

Governor Christie has signed a bill which will double the penalties for texting and driving. Previously you received $100 penalty if you were convicted of texting and driving. Now for a first offense the fines will be between $200 to $400. For a second offense the fines will between $400 and $600 and for a third offense between $600 and $800. If you are convicted of a third offense for texting and driving, the Judge may in their discretion suspend your driving privileges and the Motor Vehicle Commission may assess your license up to three points.


I was served with disciplinary charges at work which then developed into criminal charges. Katie explained each issue to me, and was able to resolve both the criminal case and my discipline! She was always available to me if I had questions and I am very happy with the outcome!


After working with another attorney, who messed up my case, I hired Katherine Hartman to represent me. I found her to be sincere, trustworthy, knowledgeable and patient in explaining everything to me. In short, Katherine kept me out of jail and I would hire again! (Even though I hope I never have to see her again!)


I highly recommend the Hartman Law Firm. Katie Hartman is a true professional, and an absolute advocate for her clients. She takes pride in making herself available for her clients in regards to questions or concerns relating to your case. She will leave no stone unturned!


I wish I could select a higher star rating. Our Company was assisted by Michael Mormando of Attorneys Hartman in a municipal case and we simply could not be happier with the way our case was handled. Michael was extremely knowledgeable and professional. He is a true master of his craft and we would highly recommend his services


Katherine was such a pleasure to work with! She was very caring, responsive, and professional throughout my whole experience. I will continue to recommend her and her firm to all of my friends and family
