Getting Help With Your Ticket
Traffic tickets are never fun, but if you find yourself on the receiving end of one, your chances of beating it improve considerably when you have an experienced attorney on your side.
I am James M. Wagman, and I have spent more than three decades protecting the interests of motorists. My broad knowledge of traffic laws and the local court system has helped numerous drivers across Upstate New York and the Hudson Valley lower or dismiss traffic tickets, avoid adding points to their records and maintain their driving privileges.
It is important that you contact an attorney as early as possible after your traffic stop. This will give you the opportunity to explore all available choices and lower the impact that the ticket could have on you and your life.
Tell Your Lawyer These Four Things
The more an attorney knows about your driving history and current situation, the better the chances you will beat your ticket in traffic court. Here is a quick overview of what you need to provide to your attorney:
- Your driving history and record details: This includes any accidents, tickets or moving violations that you have received within the last three years.
- The details about your current charge: The chances of getting your violation reduced or dismissed improve when your attorney knows as much as possible about your infraction and the events surrounding it.
- Where and when your court hearing will be: Knowing exactly where and when your court hearing will take place gives your attorney adequate time to prepare your case.
- When your response is due: If you plan to contest your traffic ticket in court, your attorney must file a response before the date specified on your violation.
Whether you are facing a civil or criminal traffic violation, I can assist you through the legal process. This can help you lower your chances of getting hit financially with hefty fines and insurance rate hikes.
