Traffic Ticket Lawyers

Fight your Albany county ticket 

Do Not Plead Guilty and mail your ticket to the court. Filling out the “statement of explanation”on the ticket will not cause the judge to reduce the charge. Instead, you will be convicted of the original charge and fined according to law. Your explanation can only influence the amount of the fine the judge imposes. 

Beyond the immediate financial penalty from a court fine or DMV assessment, your insurance company may increase your premiums or even drop your coverage. There may also be unforeseen consequences, like suspensions. 

Unfortunately, New York State tickets do not include much information and the process can be confusing. Don’t be taken by surprise: 7 things Your ticket does not tell you.  The best policy is to consult a lawyer to learn about and minimize any consequences for New York drivers, young drivers, and Out-of-state and Canadian drivers.

Azria & Bruffett PLLC BBB Business Review

Do not hesitate to hire him!

Me and a friend got in legal trouble in a town about 4 hours away from where we live. The charge was very threatening, and we expected to be dealing with it for months with little hope that it would go in our favor. We ended up having all of the charges dropped in the first appearance within about 40 minutes. Words cannot describe how much weight has been lifted off of our shoulders at a very modest price. Forever grateful for spending the time to research and find this excellent lawyer!

Take it from a Fellow Attorney, Seth Azria is wonderful and gets the job done.

I am an attorney working in the lower Hudson Valley. I had an unfortunate brush with the law on my birthday of all days! which resulted in my receipt of a speeding ticket en-route to a wedding in Buffalo. I'd never had any other infractions on my record and this offense is certainly not an area in which I specialize. I was very upset and worried but immediately upon calling Mr. Azria all of my fears and concerns melted away. Mr. Azria was able to plead my ticket down to a minor violation with no points and a small fee to the Court. Mr. Azria was quick, efficient and responsive. I never had a moment of worry that my case was being neglected. Mr. Azria and his team answered any questions that I had and kept me informed throughout the process. I could not have asked for a better team in my corner and you can't beat the price. You would have thought that I spent a small fortune for the quality of service that I received. Take it from me, Mr. Azria is the attorney you want representing you.
