Whether you were pulled over for speeding, a cellphone violation, not wearing your seat belt or any other traffic violation, it is critical to understand the likely impact on your record, driver's license, job and insurance rates. You cannot make sound decisions without knowing the law and available options.

Will You Be Penalized as a Persistent Violator? Will You Get a Harsh Judge?
In addition to DWI or another criminal charge, there are three ways to get suspended in New York. Two are fairly well known: getting three or more speeding tickets within 18 months and getting hit with 11 or more DMV "points" in an 18-month period. The third is having a judge decide that your specific offense or record makes you a safety risk, and that can mean suspension for up to a year.
Our statewide New York traffic violation attorneys fight unjust tickets and citations when a viable defense exists. We often negotiate preferable consequences based on individual priorities related to job requirements, insurance consequences and other factors.
Our traffic clients are individuals, commercial drivers, trucking companies, and taxi and limo companies throughout the five boroughs, any of the 63 New York counties, or residing elsewhere but ticketed or arrested in New York. Call or e-mail us for the legal help you need.
