You Can, And Should, Fight Your Traffic Ticket
Traffic tickets do not usually rise to the level of a criminal offense. However, simply paying a fine is similar to pleading guilty and it can put your driver’s license at risk. It is possible to challenge a traffic ticket with the help of an experienced lawyer.

- Driving without a license
Tickets Can Add Up Quickly
When it comes to traffic offenses, New York operates on a point system. In other words, each traffic offense results in a set number of points. Accumulate too many points and your driver’s license could be suspended. In addition, points on your record can cause your insurance costs to skyrocket. These points can add up much more quickly than you think, which is why it is worth your time to challenge a traffic ticket.
I Understand The Local Legal System
Every town in New York handles traffic tickets differently. In some instances, the town prosecutor or district attorney is responsible for handling traffic charges. Other towns allow you to handle your charge through the mail. As a lawyer who has been working in Albany County for more than 20 years, I know how each town and village handles traffic offenses. I also know the most efficient and effective manner of challenging tickets in various municipalities. My familiarity with each court system, and the laws and processes involved, means better, more time- and cost-efficient results for my clients.
