Traffic Ticket Lawyers

Fight your Franklin 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.

very courteous and professional. they did exactly what they said they would do and kept me informed thought the entire process.

Multiple times working with David and Seth

Without being too specific regarding my actual cases I'd like to tell anyone out there that David and Seth are both amazing lawyers who care about their clients. They have both gone to bat for myself and my now wife...multiple times, with more than expected results each and every time. Again, without being too open about matters, we all make mistakes, when I was younger I had the unfortunate experience of receiving a DWI, David handled my case, in the end, though a hefty fine, which you would expect, it was dismissed, the court at that time didn't even know how to handle it because it had never been done before. Again, unfortunate, an assault charge due to a bar fight involving the woman who is now my wife, Seth handled this and the result was an ACD. I have also referred someone close to David due to them receiving a DWI...a third DWI, involving an accident, again David got results that were outstanding. Fast-forwarding many years, David has still made himself available to me when called on. I have recently asked for a personal letter to a judge regarding a character reference and again, David has pulled through, made himself available and assisted me. I can't say more about David and Seth, they're two very well known, very smart, very capable lawyers who have helped me through some rather dark times, sometimes I wonder how I don't have a record, it's because of these two guys. Would never recommend anyone else.
