**A conviction for 6 points or more in any 18 month period will cause a Driver Responsibility Assessment (DRA), from the New York DM in the amount listed. This assessment will be due in addition to the court fine and applies all drivers regardless of where they are licensed to drive. 

**New York state suspends driving license of driver who accumulates 11 points or more in any 18 month period. Therefore, one conviction for speeding 41 mph over the limit, or more, will cause a suspension all by itself.

Azria & Bruffett is an excellent law firm to deal with! Once you engage their services, they are excellent to take care of any traffic ticket. The settlements of the tickets are very favorable to the client. They are also VERY timely. out of the 4 tickets my son had over a period of a year, 2 of them were settled within 2 days of submitting them to Mr. Azria.

Professional, Knowledgeable, Dependable, Honest, and Hard-Working...

...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!

Hire Seth!!

I received a speeding ticket in upstate New York (30 mph above speed limit) - this was a 6 point hike on my insurance + fines up to $385. I hired Seth over the phone (I live out-of-state), paid my fees, and crossed my fingers. Wow. My case was resolved in around a month to 0 points and a fine of $135. 100% of my communication after our initial call was over e-mail.

Very Quick and Easy!

I called Mr. Azria due to a speeding ticket in another county. He gave me a price quote upfront and within a few days had gotten my 4 point offense reduced to a non-moving violation. All in all I only had to email him the ticket information and pay him a very reasonable fee(which I was able to do online). He did the rest, very convenient. He was very quick to respond to me and readily available if needed. Mr Azria also contacted me with updates via both email and regular mail. I am very satisfied with his services and will use him if needed in the future.
