Fighting Traffic Tickets Throughout The Hudson Valley

Protect Your License – Don’t Plead Guilty

If you have received a traffic ticket, don’t make the mistake of simply pleading guilty and mailing your ticket back to the court. When you plead guilty, you are accepting all of the penalties associated with that conviction, including any fines imposed by the court; the points that will be assessed against your driving record; any fees or Driver Responsibility Assessments imposed by DMV; increased insurance premiums; and the possible suspension or revocation of your driving privileges.

Speak with an experienced attorney who understands the consequences of these violations before you act. As your lawyer, I will analyze the merits of the charge to determine if it is possible to obtain a reduction or an outright dismissal of your ticket.

I am Larry Trank, a traffic ticket defense attorney with more than 20 years of experience representing drivers who have been charged with traffic violations. From my law office in New Paltz, New York, I defend drivers throughout the Hudson Valley who have received traffic tickets, including on highways such as the New York State Thruway (I-87), Interstate 84 (I-84), and the Taconic State Parkway (TSP).

No Court Appearance Needed

You don’t have to miss work or travel hours driving back and forth to court to handle your traffic ticket. As your lawyer, I can appear in Court on your behalf to fight most types of traffic violations.

I represent people facing all types of traffic violations, including:

Expensive Points

Depending on the specific traffic infraction, a single violation can carry a point penalty ranging from 2 points to 11 points. If you incur 6 or more points on your driving record, you will be subject to the New York Driver Responsibility Assessment Program. This means that the DMV will assess a financial penalty that you must pay to the DMV every year for three years. This assessment is in addition to the original fine that you will have to pay the court for each of your violations.
