Representing Clients in Town
Courts Throughout the Region

To be successful in traffic court, you want to work with an attorney who knows the local courts. I am James M. Wagman. As a lawyer with more than 35 years of traffic violation defense experience, I have practiced extensively throughout upstate New York and the Hudson Valley. In fact, I handle more traffic ticket cases than nearly any other lawyer in New York state.

Whether you are from New York or not, you deserve an attorney who understands the small-town courts. Because I served as a town attorney prosecuting matters for a number of years and because of my decades of experience, I know how the local courts throughout the region operate. I can provide effective local representation in numerous towns throughout Upstate New York like Catskill, Athens, New Baltimore, Coxsackie, Claverack, Taghkanic, Colonie, Albany and Wilton just to name a few and to drivers ticketed along many of the interstates in New York such as the New York Thruway, the Northway and the Taconic Parkway among others.

I represent New York residents, out-of-state drivers, Canadian drivers and commercial drivers.

Experienced Legal
Representation on Your Side

While one traffic ticket may seem to some like a minor inconvenience, by simply paying the fine, you could be on the receiving end of points on your license. If you receive too many points, you could face a possible suspension of your driver’s license. In small towns throughout upstate New York, it can be hard to get around without a car.

Before you plead guilty and pay a fine, talk to me about your options. I have helped countless drivers throughout my career keep points off their licenses and helped them stay on the road through skilled negotiations and detailed investigations.
