Clarksville Town Court

Clarksville Town Court is located on School Street in the town of Clarksville, New York. The town of Clarksville is located in Allegany County, New York.

Clarksville is a town in the Allegany County of New York, United States and is in the southwest part of the county and is northeast of Olean. The town is in the western tier of towns in Allegany County and is located next to Genesee.

Clarksville’s surface is very irregular with its hills being rapid. These hills form a part of the foothills by the Appalachian system. This part of the town presents very beautiful scenery during the summer when the hills covered with trees in green foliage and also during autumn when this foliage is turned by frosts into different shades of yellow and red.

The town’s principal watercourse is Dodge creek and its valley was once a paradise to hunters. This part of the town offers protection for many wild animals such as bears, wolves, deer and many more. This valley was also once the Indian’s favorite locality. Much of these forests, however, were cleared away and transformed to farms, pasture or meadow land.

The town’s first settlers arrived in 1822 with town established in 1835 from a part of the town of Cuba. Communities and locations in town include the Germantown in Clarksville’s northwest corner, the hamlet Obi located on NY 305 by the south town line, the hamlet West Clarksville at the junction of NY 305 and County Route 40 near the town center. Besides Dodge Creek, there is also Wolf Creek that is a stream that flows in the west part of Clarksville.

There are a number of others facilities and buildings in town. There are two churches, the Baptist Church and the Friendship Church. In terms of schools, there are about nine school districts with three being joint-districts. The schools in town are all well attended and is aligned to the goal of the town to ensure that the coming generation will fit to the responsibilities of becoming worthy citizens.

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 Clarksville 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.
