Did you receive a ticket in Chautauqua Town Court?
It is not uncommon for an individual to attempt to defend a traffic violation by themselves without knowing the procedure and customs of the local court system. However, oftentimes a person who represents themselves risks missing important deadlines, notices, and court proceedings because they are not familiar with the court rules and legal documents involved in any given case. Without an understanding of local courtroom rules and customs, people that choose to represent themselves, due to their lack of knowledge of these rules and customs, often, unintentionally offend a judge or district attorney.
