New York City Traffic Infraction Lawyer
Let Us Fight Your Traffic Ticket in Court
Getting a traffic ticket is an annoyance almost everyone has experienced. Most individuals who receive a ticket, whether through the mail or directly from a police officer, often write a check and pay the fine just to be done with it. By doing this, you are admitting guilt and, in most cases involving moving violations, this admission will lead to points added to your driving record and increased insurance premiums. Most of us rarely think about contesting the ticket, believing we don’t stand a chance in court against the testimony of law enforcement. However, traffic tickets can be fought like any other claim in court and, with the help of a skilled attorney, you may be able to save time, money, and points on your record.
As a New York City traffic infractions attorney, I have helped innumerable individuals fight against traffic violations. I know the system, understand the traffic laws, and have developed strong courtroom skills over my years of practice. You won’t need to miss work, school, or other appointments while I represent your case in court. Let me help you fight to keep your driving record clean as well as avoid the other negative consequences of traffic violations.
Traffic Violations in New York
Unfortunately, when receiving a traffic ticket, you are not left with a lot of options. You can either accept and pay the ticket or you can fight back. Acceptance and payment are not always the best action to take, especially in cases where you may already have accrued points on your record. Accumulating too many points within a given timeframe can lead to the suspension of your license. In addition to the points, you may be facing a heavy fine along with insurance premium hikes. For all these reasons, you may want to contest the ticket and you have a legal right to do so.
My firm handles all types of traffic violations, including those that are considered criminal charges, such as:
- Drunk driving
- Leaving the scene of an accident
- Reckless driving
- Aggravated unlicensed operation
I also represent clients for non-criminal traffic violations such as:
- Failure to obey traffic device
- Improper cell phone use
- Improper turns
- Failure to signal
- Failing to yield to pedestrians
These violations can add points to your driving record ranging from 2 for inadequate brakes up to 11 points for speeding 40 miles per hour over the posted limit. If you accumulate six points or more within 18 months, you will be required to pay a Driver Responsibility Assessment Fee. If you accrue 11 points within 18 months, you will face a license suspension. You can also lose your license if you are convicted of three speeding tickets within 18 months. A license suspension can seriously impact your life, effecting your ability to get to work, school, and fulfill other obligations.
