Traffic charges in Suffolk County or any of the five New York boroughs present unique challenges. At the Katz Law Offices in New York City, we have the knowledge of the unique rules and governing bodies to help you.
Appearing Before the Traffic Violations Bureau
If you receive a traffic ticket in New York City or anywhere in Suffolk County, you will have to appear before the Traffic Violations Bureau (TVB). The TVB is part of the Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) established to handle the high volume of infractions. With one of our offices based in Manhattan, our attorneys have extensive experience in appearing before the TVB.
The largest challenge in dealing with the TVB on your behalf is the inability to plea bargain. That usually means a trial is necessary. However, it does not necessarily mean you have to take time out of your workday to appear before the TVB. We litigate a vast majority of these cases without our clients in attendance. Our focus is convenience for our Suffolk County clients and expedience in handling their traffic ticket.
Establishing Your Traffic Ticket Defense
At the Katz Law Offices, we will make your case through a variety of strategies. Challenging the police officer's testimony and the legality of the ticket is paramount in your defense. Officers write so many tickets that they fail to remember specifics or even fill out the ticket properly. We use that to your advantage in traffic court.
Legal Representation for Your Traffic Ticket
While legal representation over a $40. traffic ticket seems excessive, we hear the concerns of our clients related to penalties beyond a small fine. Each TVB conviction can add points to their records. Insurance rates will go up accordingly. That seemingly insignificant ticket may cost hundreds, if not thousands of dollars if they exceed a certain number of points. You could also lose the ability to drive, if your license is suspended or revoked.
