We are an affiliation of full service law firms specializing in the area of moving violations, Vehicle and Traffic Law infractions, parking tickets, criminal court appearances and equipment summonses in courts throughout New York State.
All of our attorneys have years of experience in traffic related matters, and are well-versed in court procedures and policies. We pride ourselves on our ability to protect our clients’ interests, and to provide legal services at a reasonable cost.
While it might seem to be more cost-effective to appear for yourself, that isn’t always the case. For example, many people plead “Guilty with an explanation”, thinking that they’ll get a deal. NEVER plead Guilty! When someone pleads guilty to an offense, Judges can only limit the fine, NOT the points accrued by the offense.
In addition, not all Courts are the same. In some jurisdictions (NY City, Suffolk County, Buffalo and Rochester Traffic Violations Bureaus) there is no pleading to a lesser offense - you are either guilty or not guilty. Other Courts allow for dispositions that will lessen the impact on your driving record and insurance premiums. Our attorneys are familiar with the policies of each court, and can explain your options and advise you on the best courses of action.
Finally, not only can our attorneys possibly save you from points and increased insurance premiums, but we can also save you time by appearing in your stead. Most Courts do not require the individual defendant’s appearance if they are represented by counsel.
If you have questions about a ticket received in New York State, call us for a free consultation- we can probably help you.
