Receiving a New York traffic ticket in New York can have serious consequences. If you are charged with violations such as speeding, reckless driving, unsafe lane change, failure to obey a traffic control device, etc. this can mean hefty fines and points on your driver’s license. Your New York State driver’s license will be suspended if you get 11 points or speed three time on a regular road or twice in a construction zone within 18 months. In addition, having these convictions on your record can make your auto insurance increase significantly.
If you are being charged with a driving-related crime like Aggravated Unlicensed Operation, i.e. driving on a suspended license in New York, driving without insurance, DWI (DUI) or if drugs were found in the car, you can expect to receive an even stiffer fine, and you might even receive jail time or a suspension of your New York driver’s license.
Think you want to handle it yourself? Expect to face an officer or prosecutor whose sole job is to get convictions. There is a ton of information out there from so-called “self-help” people who think they know all the tricks to get a dismissal. The dirty little secret is that most of the time these tricks don’t work. The odds are overwhelming that you will lose and get convicted. Not to mention the fact that you might have to sit in court for hours until your case is heard and then if the officer does not show up, the judge may order you to come back a second or third time.
For all of these reasons, it pays to hire an aggressive New York traffic ticket lawyer to handle your case. Instead of taking a gamble with your driver’s license we will use tried and true hardball negotiation tactics to challenge your ticket to get the best settlement or “plea bargain” possible. Don’t let the prosecutor take advantage of your lack of experience – our experienced attorneys will handle the case from start to finish. Added bonus: In the vast majority of non-criminal traffic ticket cases, you won’t even have to come to court – your lawyer will go for you so you don’t have to waste hours of your time and/or miss work.
