However, if the out-of-state ticket is not taken care of in a timely manner, suspension of the Pennsylvania driver’s license could result.

I was very satisfied having them represent me on a speeding ticket. They kept me posted through out the process and made me at ease from the start as it would have been very difficult for me being out of state for this speeding ticket. Very Professional and I highly recommend them.

After thinking this was a lost cause, my insurance could've gone up and my license been revoked for a speeding ticket and unlicensed operator ticket. Mr. Ralph Habib was able to successfully reduce both charges. Anyone wondering if you should fight a ticket, do so! You have a higher possibility of reducing the charge and pay less by being represented than just paying the tickets and seeing your insurance go up! Highly recommend Mr. Ralph Habib.

Azria & Bruffett provided excellent representation for my 89-year old father who was charged with two tickets in Cortland, NY. For a very affordable fee, they were able to obtain dismissal of the moving violation resulting in a very small fine and court costs. I live in another state so this was especially convenient for me to help my dad and they saved me a lot of time. We spoke with an attorney and a paralegal (Monica) guided my dad and I through the remainder of the process. The firm responded to all of my questions promptly. Highly recommended.
