Brooklyn Moving Violations – NYC Traffic Ticket Defense
If you’re facing suspension of your driver’s license due to an accumulation of moving violations, or if a single incident resulted in citations for multiple traffic violations, you need the advice of a skilled and experienced New York traffic ticket lawyer. Contact the Law Offices of Barry S. Jacobson in Brooklyn for a free initial consultation about your options and alternatives.
In New York, every moving violation is assigned a certain number of points that count against your right to drive. Traffic tickets issued in Quebec or Ontario count against your New York license as well. If your total number of points within any 18-month period exceeds 11, the DMV will suspend your license, and there’s very little you can do about it at the administrative level, aside from showing that you were not the driver who received a particular citation. In certain situations, such as three speeding tickets within an 18-month period, your license will not be suspended–it will be revoked.
The best time to deal with traffic tickets is as soon as you receive them. If you pay the fine, you’re pleading guilty to the offense charged, and in most cases, 2 to 5 points are counted against your license. New York moving violations attorney Barry Jacobson has more than 25 years of experience as a former judge, a former prosecutor, and a defense attorney with driving infractions and traffic tickets of all kinds.
When you engage our law firm to defend you, we’ll use our experience and familiarity with the New York traffic violation enforcement process to resolve your situation on the most favorable terms possible. In some cases, we’ll be able to negotiate with the prosecution to achieve lesser charges or dismissals. In other cases, we’ll be able to save points against your license through accident prevention classes. In all cases, we’ll be on the lookout for defects or mistakes in the citations themselves to eliminate the moving violations from your record.
