Wales Town Court

The Wales Town Court is located on Emery Road in the town of South Wales, New York. The town of South Wales is located in Erie County, New York.

The Town of Wales is a rural farming community located in the southeast part of Erie County. Wales is one of the earliest towns in Erie County. The population as at the 2010 census was 3,005 people.

The Town of Wales was originally a farming community before it was established in 1818 from the Town of Willink. The town is so named because the beautiful fields and hills reminded the settlers of the nation of Wales.

The town has a total land area of 35.6 square miles of which 0.14% (0.04 square miles) is water.

The people of Tonawanda have always expressed a desire of maintaining the small-town atmosphere and quality of life of the town. As such, the transition to modern ways of life has focused on small, family businesses. The town also emphasizes the spirit of volunteerism and personal commitment.

If you’re considering relocating to a place where you can raise a family quietly, then the Town of Wales will do. You can pass your family business from one generation to the other without worrying about the hustles and bustles attached to other busy cities. Life in the Town of Wales is peaceful.

Advantages of Hiring A Local Attorney

The John C. Nelson law firm receives calls from attorneys across New York State asking me to ‘cover’ a traffic ticket for him or her. This is because not all traffic tickets can be handled by mail. Most of the time, I can appear on my client’s behalf or even handle the matter by mail, but sometimes courts require the attorney to be present in court. For example the courts of Limestone, Perry or the Village of Ellicottville can not be handled by mail, attorney must be present.

When you hire an attorney from New York City to appear on a traffic ticket that was issued hours away from the big city, they call a local attorney, such as the John C. Nelson law firm.

Sometimes the big city attorney calls the local prosecutor who offers a plea to a points violation instead of a parking ticket. The big city attorneys that advertise on the the TV, radio and internet are many hours away and have no interest in taking the case to trial and can’t argue motions.

It’s more advantages to hire a local attorney, who knows the law, the locale and can be present at the local court, when needed.

Did you receive a ticket in Wales Town Court?

In most instances in life, the more points you get, the better it is. However, that’s not the case when it comes to the New York Department of Motor Vehicles issuing points on your license for certain types of traffic violation convictions. When it comes to a clean driving record, you don’t want any points or as few as possible. Having points on your license can increase your automobile insurance, it can prevent you from having certain jobs that requires you to drive and it could lead to license suspension or revocation.

The New York Vehicle and Traffic Law section 1180 deals with speed limits and lays out the consequences imposed by a court upon a conviction. The fine that a court may assess is based upon the specific traffic violation stated on the issued ticket, the speeding infraction, and the number of previous convictions.
