The Holland Town Court is located on Main street in the town of Holland, New York. The Town of Holland is located in Erie County, New York.
Holland was first established along what it now the northern border, which at that time was called Humphrey Valley in the early 1800s.
The town of Holland was established in the late 1810s from part of the old town of Willink, which at one time encompassed all the southern part of Erie County. The name came from Willem Willink, one of the first investors of the Holland Land Company, which was so large in property ownership it owned most of the land in western New York and sold it off one at a time to the cities and townships that exist today.
The name “Holland” from the Holland Land Company comes from one of the investors that was Dutch, who once owned the WNY region. As with the town of Willink, the locations named after these investors have been given new names. Today the Holland Historical Society is placed in the original fire hall on Main Street.
Holland Town Court personnel are prohibited by law from providing you with any legal advice. They will attempt to guide you through the process; but if you have legal concerns, you should seek the advice of counsel.
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 Holland 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.
