Carmel Town Court
Mcalpin Ave-Town Hall
Mahopac, NY 10541

The Town of Carmel is the County Seat for Putnam County. Because I-84 runs nearby and the Taconic clips only a notch of the town the town does not handle many traffic tickets. Further, most of the tickets written in the Town of Carmel happened on their own surface streets and were written by the local Carmel Police Department. In addition to speeding tickets, red light, stop sign, and failure to signal tickets (VTL § 1180, VTL § 1111, VTL § 1172 & VTL § 1163) are common in the Carmel Town Court. The Town court is located in Mahopac. The Court schedules traffic ticket cases during the middle of the day which makes it difficult to defend on your own. When you retain our law office we will go to court for you so you never have to lose time from work.

1360 Route 22
Brewster, NY 10509

The Town of Southeast is the second largest town in Putnam County. It is located at the intersection of Interstate highways I-684 & I-84, along with Routes 22, 312, 6 and 202.

If you are charged with reckless driving, VTL § 1212, driving on a suspended license, VTL § 511, or driving on a suspended registration, VTL § 512 in the Town of Southeast those are criminal charges and not infractions. Consequently, the court has a heavy traffic calendar with state police tickets.
