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 Orchard Park 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.
