Many motorists do not think they need a traffic court attorney to assist them in fighting the moving violations they received in Court. Think Again.
Most motorists are also ignorant of the severe and long term ramifications that follow one or more convictions in New York State. For instance, New York State will revoke a driver's license for three or more speeding convictions within an 18 month period. That revocation lasts six months in length. Think for a second about the possibility of not being able to drive your car for six months.
ALL New York State violations will be reported to the DMV in Albany where they will remain for a minimum of 39 months. The violation will not clear from your driving record until the last day of the calendar year in which the violation happened. A conviction of one or more traffic violation(s) adding up to 11 or more points will also result in an automatic suspension of your driver's license.
Some of the Speeding/Traffic Tickets charges our attorneys handle include:
- Reckless Driving
- Leaving the Scene of an Accident
- Motions to Vacate a Guilty Plea
- NYS Point System
Violations, especially speeding offenses, often result in huge fines. As if to add insult to injury, DMV now levies a surcharge of $100 per year for 3 years for convictions of 6 or more points. Each additional point results in an additional $25 per year DMV surcharge. A failure to pay will result in an automatic suspension of your license or privilege to drive in New York State.
Who better to counsel you on the pitfalls than someone with knowledge from the inside looking out. Mr. McMillan, a former New York State Prosecutor, is intimately acquainted with all of the tricks that the police and prosecutors might attempt at trial.
In addition, he can counsel you on things the average driver might be unaware of. Some of these things include, for instance, enrolling in a driver safety course to reduce a driver's point total, and strategies for winning the case at trial that Mr. McMillan has learned through his years of experience as a traffic and DMV trial attorney.
Don't lose your license because of excessive points, or three speeding offenses. Don't suffer the related penalties - including a precipitous rise in your insurance rates, a DMV surcharge and the possibility of having to reapply to the DMV for a new driver's license. Don't be caught unprepared!
