Centerville Town Court

Centerville Town Court is located on Rushford Road in the town of Centerville, New York. The town of Centerville is located in Allegany County, New York.

The town of Centerville in the Allegany County in New York, United States is located to the northwest corner. The town got its name from its principal settlement with the first settler being Joseph Maxon on April 1808. Joseph Maxon was only 18 and he passed eight months in the wilderness of present-day Centerville alone.

Then in the fall of 1808, James Ward settled with half dozen other families moved in the following year. On January 15, 1819, Centerville which was then spelled “Centreville” was established from a part of the town of Pike. Centerville is the northwestern town in the Allegany County which is located on the ridge’s summit. The town divides the waters of Genesee River and the Cattaraugus Creek.

Centerville’s surface is moderately hilly in the upland with the soil mostly clayey loam. To the west of Centerville, there is the town of Hume and to the north is the town of Rushford. The town of Freedom in the Cattaraugus County shares Centerville’s west town line while the north town line is shared with the town of Eagle in the Wyoming County.

Centerville is drained by Sixth Town creek which also improperly being called Six Town. The Sixth Town creek has two major tributaries with the first one has its source in the town’s northwest part. The other which starts from the town’s southwestern part contributes largely to the configuration of Sixth Town creek than any other stream in town.

There is also the Houghton creek, a branch of Cattaraugus creek and whose source is in the town’s southeast part. The name Centreville came from the fact that the first settlement in the town was made exactly at the town’s ‘Centre’ a few years before it was formed. With that, the people thought that naming the town ‘Centreville’ is just proper.

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 Centerville 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.
