Received a ticket for driving under a suspended license but I didn't know it was suspended, what is the best case scenario?

Question Details:

It weas for an anpiad parking ticket. I received notice in the mail that my license was suspended a couple of days after I got the ticket for driving while suspended. I did not know it was suspended; for an unpaid parking ticket. The date on the notice though was 1-28-10 and I got the ticket on 2-1-10. I'm trying to find out if an attorney is really needed in this case. I must let the court know in 2weeks if I will have representation. What is the most likely fines/surcharges I will end up paying with an attorney? Are there points involved? The parking ticket has been payed and license restoration fee paid all the day after getting the ticket. I'm in Middlesex County. NJ.
