a speeding ticket be beat? Yes,
all tickets can be beat. But, it is better to do a plea bargain instead of taking
your case to trial.

wasn’t speeding but it’s just my
word against the cop. What chance
do I have? Actually,
it’s NOT your word against the cops. It is the state’s burden to prove the case
against you beyond a reasonable doubt.
should I hire a lawyer when
just paying the fine will cost less? Whenever you hire a lawyer for a speeding
or traffic case, it’s not the fine you are trying to defeat but the insurance
increase that comes with pleading guilty to a moving violation. By avoiding the
moving violation conviction you avoid paying thousands by preventing insurance
increases. That is the real value of our services.
there any hidden costs
associated with a traffic ticket? Yes. Often times when you plead guilty
to a moving violation that the conviction triggers further fines from the NYS
DMV, called “assessments.” One common assessment occurs whenever you accumulate
6 points from 1 or more conviction within an 18 month period. The minimum
assessment is $300.00, and goes up in $75.00 increments per point from there.
sent my ticket in with a guilty
plea and now my license is being
suspended. Is it too late to do
anything to stop it? This is a common problem. Certain
convictions trigger license suspensions and / or revocations. People do not
realize it until it is too late. We have a service whereby we can reverse a
conviction and thereby avoid the pending suspension.
