We have been extremely successful in reducing speeding tickets to offenses as minor as parking tickets. You will still have to pay a fine, but no points will be assessed against your license. Points on your license can ultimately cause you to have your driver's license suspended or revoked.
Even if the number of points on your license does not lead to suspension of your driver's license, your insurance rates will certainly increase. As you can see from the Driver Violation Point System in New York, having any points assessed against your driver's license is costly in both the short and long term.
We can represent you in any New York State court located throughout Suffolk and Nassau Counties. We regularly appear in the courts in Southampton, East Hampton, as well as all other traffic courts throughout Long Island defending speeding tickets and other moving violations.
