You Get Your First Speeding Ticket Ever You are late for an important meeting and decide that getting there faster is worth the risk of getting your first ticket.

Great Lawyer

I have hired Ralph Habib to represent me for a speeding ticket I received in NY. He was able to reduce my points and I only had to pay a minimal court fine. I am very pleased with the result and would definitely recommend Ralph's services for traffic related court matters.

Speeding Tickets x 2

Mr. Bruffet and his office staff handled 2 speeding tickets for me. One was last year and was moved to a non-moving violation and this last one was a significant reduction in points and surcharge. I am so pleased and have provided my healthcare firm with his information as we travel across Upstate NY on a daily basis. Highly recommend.

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.

excellent results

Atty Azria explained my real situation and my real choices to me with regard to a moving violation charge in central new york. He then worked to reduce the charges to a no-point non-moving violation. I am extremely happy with these results and would very strongly recommend his firm to everyone.
