It was around 11 at night and I was on my way back from a ski trip with a friend of mine and the roads were pretty clear, I was driving with a few other cars going pretty fast for miles. Cars were flying past me and after driving for so long i didnt really notice my speed. Then a car was on my tail for a good amount of time then it ended up being a state trooper and they flashed me and pulled me over. He got me for doing 107 in a 65. I have a clean record and all the officer gave me luckly was a speeding ticket. Im in need of some guidance for this situation. Should I go in with my step father or should I get a lawyer. I dont have the option to just pay the ticket, I must appear in court.
Get yourself a good lawyer that is a very high speed which even for an old driver with a clean record would generally lead to a suspension of your his license The general rule is that you will probably end up with a suspension although a few judges will definately consider the jail although you may not have to worry about that due to your age but a lawyer can still help with reducing that suspension time.

Well you can bring your step-father--to drive you home after the Judge suspends your license for say 45 days. Respectfully, you need a reality check-this is a very serious ticket--Hammonton Court is no joke. I have had tough cases there--and my experience is that the Judge and Prosecutor can be reasoned with-by an experienced defense attorney. Please get an AVVO attorney today.
You need an attorney. You license will be suspended unless certain things are attempted, and even then. Plus you have a probationary license so unless yo get to two points (good luck there) MVC will be involved after they are notified.
