Why Should I Call an Attorney?

When most people receive speeding tickets, they simply pay the fines in an effort to "move on" from the incident. By paying the fine and admitting guilt, however, you may be closing the door on any chance to get your ticket thrown out or negotiated to a lesser violation.

By paying the fine, you will likely have points put on your license. In New York point ranges are:

  • Three points for driving between 1 and 10 mph above the speed limit
  • Four points for speeds between 11 and 20 mph above the limit
  • Six points for driving between 21 and 30 mph over the limit
  • Eight points for between 31 and 40 mph above the speed limit
  • 11 points for all speeds of more than 40 mph above the speed limit

Too many points can lead to serious consequences, including the loss of driving privileges. Attorney James Wagman knows how to protect your license and your driving record by minimizing or eliminating points. This is especially important for anyone who needs to protect a commercial driver's license or CDL. Typically, the court takes several factors into consideration, including your past record and how you interacted with the police officer when you were pulled over.
