How We Defend
Your Staten Island Speeding Ticket or Moving Violation
the fact that every case in the Staten Island goes to trial, our Staten Island
Traffic Infraction Defense Lawyers have a tried and true template of operation
for the Staten Island Traffic Court to ensure that your insurance does not
increase. First off, many of our clients end up with acquittals (i.e., the
ticket is dismissed). For those clients who are found guilty, we still prevent
an insurance increase through the method in which we defend the case, which isdelay,
we do is adjourn the trial as long as we possibly can. By the time we take the case
to trial (usually about 1 year after the date the ticket was written) we have
already gotten you past substantial part, or all of, the period that your
insurance could have been increased.
is because points hit your license if you are convicted and on the conviction
date. However, the look back period for potential insurance increases
points is based on the offense date. This means that if you
are convicted 15 months after the ticket was written, you will only be carrying
the points for another 3 months for the DMV lookback, as opposed to if you mail
it in with a guilty plea you are carrying the points for the full 18 months.
In addition, we are
experts of the Staten IslandNYC Traffic Violation Bureau. We know the temperament of each judge and whom
to try to pitch around depending on the charges. We also know how and when to
not answer a calendar call and get a new court date. Often times the charges
are so egregious that it is best to plead our client guilty to save his
license. We know when to do this as well. We also get your personal court
appearance waived so that you do not lose time for work or school!
