Experience Defending Clients From Traffic Charges In Local Courts

I have experience defending clients in many of the local courts that see a lot of traffic violations because of their locations along the New York Thruway or the Taconic State Parkway:

Penalties For Accumulating Points ∙ The New York Driver Responsibility Assessment Program

Different point amounts are assessed based on the seriousness of the specific infraction. Any single infraction can carry from 2 to 11 points. When you accumulate 6 or more points, you will be subject to the New York Driver Responsibility Assessment Program. Under this program, you will pay additional fines every year for three years in addition to the fine for the specific infraction.

If you accumulate too many points on your driver's license, you will face additional fines and the possibility of losing your license.
