Herkimer Town 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

Excellent lawyer

I hired David Bruffett based upon his internet advertisement's claim to relieve my stress over my ticket. He talked me through the options that were available to us as well as giving me an education into the idiosyncrasies of New York traffic law. By the end of the case he had achieved the best outcome possible. While I personally hope to never need his services again I will call him immediately should the need arise and would recommend him to my friends and family if they need the services of a lawyer.

What A Find!

I received a four point ticket and googled attorney's to choose who could handle my case, being that I was not local to the county in which I received the Summons. I found Seth Azria's Law firm and read the testimonials. I liked what I read and reached out to him. After retaining his services, I found the testimonials to be spot on. My ticket was reduced to a non point, non moving violation. Later on my son received the same type ticket with the same outcome. Very pleased with the services that he provided.

So helpful and easy to work with

Mr. Habib and his staff helped me with a traffic matter and achieved an outcome that I was very happy with! I am from outside of the area and Mr. Habib explained the matter to me and told me about my various options, advising me on what I should do to handle the situation. I didn't even have to meet with him in person or attend any hearings, etc., it was all taken care of by Mr. Habib and his staff. I recommend Mr. Habib highly to anyone facing legal issues in NY. I am a very satisfied customer!
