While the act of driving is considered a privilege, it is often treated like a necessity for many New York residents. Whether an individual drives for a living, requires a car to get to their job or relies on a vehicle to get around, losing the ability to drive due to a criminal traffic violation could disrupt a person’s personal and professional life.
Whether a motorist is charged with reckless driving, driving under the influence, driving with a suspended or revoked license or driving without a license, these charges should not be treated like simple traffic violations because they can carry serious consequences. James M. Wagman Attorney at Law understands the importance of fighting such charges.
With over 30 years of experience, our law office has helped both local and out-of-state drivers with traffic violations that range from high speed tickets to driving without a license. Our legal staff is skilled and knowledgeable with the applicable laws and have helped past clients successfully resolve his or her criminal traffic violation charges.
The goal of a defense is to reduce or eliminate the charges against the accused because these charges could lead to points being added to the accused’s driving record. The point system could greatly impact the individual’s driving record, resulting in diver’s license suspension or revocation. Because a person’s livelihood could be directly impacted by not being able to drive, it is often in the defendant’s best interest to keep their license.
