Herkimer County Court

Traffic Ticket Lawyers

Fight your Herkimer 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

Google+ Review

Seth Azria is a great attorney! I have been going to him for many years. He has been very dependable, honest and personable. I would recommend him to anyone seeking great service and diligent legal help.

Professional & Trustworthy

I contacted the office after receiving a speeding ticket. I was informed of my options and the likelihood of various outcomes and retained the services of the Azria office. The entire process was seamless and I was informed of the progress of the proceedings every step of the way. In the end, the case was reduced to a non moving violation. I would highly recommend the firm.

Best Decision I've Made!

Fantastic to work with, he was able to take my cell phone ticket worth a possible 5 points and bring it down to a muffler violation worth 0 points. Could not be happier with the service provided and how quick and easy everything was, once I answered a few questions everything else was taken care of for me! Extremely reasonable price, especially considering all I will be saving not having to pay extra on my insurance!
