Can a Police Officer Visually Estimate the Speed of Your Car?

Yes, the officer may visually estimate your speed and the judge may rely on the officer’s opinion of your speed to support a conviction. Of course, the officer has to be properly trained in such independent visual estimation, have experience in doing so, and have an acceptable level of accuracy.

What is the Second Page that the Officer Gave me with My Ticket?

If you received a second page attached to your uniform traffic ticket, it is likely a Supporting Deposition / CPL 710.30 Notice. This second page combines the Supporting Deposition, at the top of the page, with an NYS Criminal Procedure Law 710.30 notice, at the bottom of the page. The NYS CPL 710.30 notice makes you aware of any statement that the People intend to use against you. If you made any statements to the officer, that they intend to use against you when prosecuting your case, those statements will be provided at the bottom of the supporting deposition. What is a Supporting...

What are Traffic Infractions as Opposed to Misdemeanors?

"Traffic Infraction is defined by the New York Vehicle and Traffic Law section 155.  A traffic infraction is not a crime. If you are charged with a traffic infraction, as opposed to misdemeanor or felony, it means that you do not have to appear in court and you may answer the ticket by mail.  That answer may be "guilty" or "not guilty." We strongly advise against pleading guilty without first seeking a reduction. A misdemeanor, on the other hand, is a classified as a crime and requires a physical appearance in court for an arraignment. Misdemeanors also...

Plea Bargaining and Fines for Common Reductions

Plea Bargaining for a Reduction The overwhelming majority of traffic tickets, that drivers do not plead guilty to, are resolved through plea bargaining. Plea bargaining occurs with the prosecutor whereby the prosecutor makes an offer to the driver to plead guilty to a reduced charge.  The reason the prosecutor makes these offers is to resolve the case. Otherwise the prosecutors would have to have a trial for every ticket. The prosecutor also seeks to serve the interests of justice. The amount of the reduction is a matter for argument.  For example, a driver is charged with...

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.

I had gotten an extremely high speeding ticket when I drove upstate for the first time. I'm 18 and have had my license for about a year, so my mother and I thought it would be a good idea to hire an attorney. It was a holiday weekend, so I was surprised when David Bruffett answered our call on Presidents' Day. I'm so thankful he did. He's did an amazing job getting my speeding ticket reduced. He instructed my on what to do to increase my chances to reduce as many points as possible. He was honest when telling us what our outcome would most likely be, however, the outcome exceeded our expectations. He and his staff were very professional and supportive. David had always made himself available to answer our calls.

Highly recommended

Mr. Azria did a great job handled my speeding ticket! All it took was a quick telephone call and he took care of everything. He got my charge (and fine) reduced and I did not have to appear in court. Everything was handled via telephone & email.

Mr. Azria was great to deal with and he did exactly what he promised for a very reasonable fee. I hope I don't need him again, but I strongly recommend him.

...These are the words I use to describe Mr. Ralph Habib. If you are ever charged with a DWI, or any other criminal charge for that matter, Ralph is lawyer you NEED to have representing you!

I was charged with a serious DWI offense, at a very bad time in Central New York considering other high profile DWI cases being publicly followed/broadcast. A friend of mine recommended Ralph, and I knew from the first time we spoke that Ralph was the lawyer I wanted fighting for me and representing me in Court. Even though the cards were stacked against us, Ralph listened to my side of the story and understood that I am not a criminal, but that I had made a poor decision. He assured me from the very beginning that he would work tirelessly to get the best possible outcome, and he answered all of my questions along the way. Due to his past work as an Assistant DA in Onondaga County, Ralph has the knowledge and connections needed in this type of case. This charge could have easily ruined me as a person, as well as the career I have worked so hard towards, but because Ralph believed in me and fought for me (at all hours of the day/night I might add), he was able to get my charges greatly reduced. I was able to keep my driver's license, which essentially saved my career and my future.

I am forever grateful to Ralph for all he has done for me! I will never be able to fully repay him for the effort he put into this case. And to anyone reading this that is in a similar situation to the one I was in, please know I hope your case gets a favorable outcome as well...if you have Ralph Habib standing next to you, there is no doubt in my mind you will be fine!
