Why You Need a Traffic Lawyer

Due to the current state of the economy, many states and municipalities have sharply raised their traffic violation fines and added surcharges for repeat offenders in recent years. Just look at the proliferation of red light cameras at intersections across Long Island as well as the installation of cameras in police cars that automatically read license plates and check for lapses in plate renewal and outstanding tickets and you can appreciate that the crackdown on driving infractions is both serious and big business.

Benefits of Fighting Your Traffic Ticket

  • Avoid court and save time

  • Keep points off your license

  • Free driving record

  • Money back guarantee A reduction in points and fines or your money for terms

Experienced traffic attorneys like I am level the playing field for you. Nine out of 10 people stopped for speeding, for example, may be guilty of the crime of which they are accused (although the clocked speed may be incorrect). Sometimes a traffic ticket is defective on its face – an experienced lawyer can spot a defect and sometimes get a dismissal. As your traffic attorney, I can negotiate with the judge and prosecutor in your case. In many cases, I can:

  • Bargain a dismissal of your moving violation(s) in exchange for guilty pleas on nonmoving violations

  • Work for a dismissal if the officer in your case fails to appear as a complaining witness

  • Work towards a dismissal of charges after a probationary period

Can you afford to hire a good traffic lawyer? Perhaps you should be asking can you afford not to? It may surprise you to realize, for example, the rise in insurance rates the first year alone for someone who pleads guilty or is found guilty of certain traffic offenses will many times exceed the cost of having a competent attorney handle the matter for you. Here is why this is generally true:

A good traffic lawyer on Long Island can often help you get a better result than you would otherwise. It is a common misconception that “points” determine how much your insurance will go up; this is not generally the case. Rather, it is based upon what offense or crime you are found guilty of or plead guilty to. When you plead guilty to certain offenses such as reckless driving, insurance companies will often raise your rate conservatively by $200-$300 per month for more than one year, or more. So you can see that you are potentially looking at several thousand dollars over the next 2-3 years in increased costs and fees.
