5 Benefits of Hiring a Traffic Lawyer to Fight Your Ticket

Benefits of Hiring a Traffic Lawyer in New York

1) Protect Your Driving License from Points and Your Insurance from Increases

New York uses a point system to keep track of your driving.  Convictions for many traffic violations will cause you to acquire points. If you acquire too many points, 11 points in any 18 month period, and the NY DMV will suspend your license.  It is not difficult to acquire 11 points.  For example, a ticket for speeding 86 in a 65 mph zone is 6 points.  

Car insurance companies also keep tabs on their insured drivers and tickets will mean increased premiums and even dropped coverage.  Parents with careless drivers for children on their insurance policies get into trouble here.

2) Prevent Suspension and Revocation

While driving is a privilege, it is also a necessity; yet many people forget about or ignore tickets.  Ignoring a ticket is a common way to get suspended. Once suspended, and many people have no idea that they are, a traffic stop for any reason will turn into a misdemeanor AUO  charge.  An AUO charge means court appearances and a conviction will incur relativity heavy fines.

When you hire us, we are responsible for you. The court will deal directly with us so you won't miss anything. This is what we do, and we do it well, so you can concentrate on what you do without worrying. 

3) Avoid Additional Expenses

New York has enacted a Driver Responsibility Assessment law.  This law directs the DMV to assess fines in addition to any fines from the court.  For example, let's say you plead guilty to a speeding ticket for 86 mph on the New York Thruway.  After sending in the ticket the court would send a notice that you owed a fine of between $90-$300 and a surcharge of $85. 

Once the Court reported the conviction to the DMV, the DMV would record 6 points on your license.  The DMV would also make a Driver Responsibility Assessment and send you a bill for $100 each year for 3 years. Miss one of these payment and the your license will be suspended and your next traffic stop will include a misdemeanor AUO.  

4) Convenience 

For nearly all traffic infractions you will not have to appear in court. We appear for you and handle the rest by mail, email, and fax. After you hire our office, all we ask is that you pay attention to any calls or emails from us. 

5) Peace of Mind 

Navigating the New York Justice Court system can be confusing and aggravating. New York has over 60 counties and over 1200 justice courts. Each of these counties and court courts have different policies and procedures to work out a ticket. 

With our statewide practice, we have worked with judges, prosecutors and court and will guide you through the process. With experienced legal representation, you do not have to be concerned about the unknown because we are always available to answer your questions.

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.

Mr. Azria was able to get my 8 points ticket down to 0 for "Parking/No standing Ticket" Mr. Azria is highly professional and handles everything for you. Before hiring his services, I spoke with Mr. Azria on the phone. He was extremely knowledgeable and explained all the factors I never thought about, which play a role in fighting to lower the ticket. I'm ecstatic about the phenomenal job Mr. Azria and his office did for me. I will 1000% recommend him. Thank you!!
