I had a wonderful experience working with this law firm. They took care of everything for me, I did not even have to attend court. My 4 point ticket was reduced to a 0 pt violation , which I was very pleased with. Jonathan Katz and his associates worked in a very timely manner and I didn't have to worry or stress about the process at all. I live 2 plus hours from the area where the ticket was received and I was very pleased how minimally I was involved in the process yet, was kept very informed. Liz was very professional , effective, a pleasure to work with and made the process very easy for me. I would highly recommend Jonathan Katz law firm !! Nealie

Got a traffic ticket in Dutchess County. First one in a long time. So I looked for local traffic attorney and saw Jonathan Katz Law with great views. Susan took my call, she was very patient and provided me with a lot of valuable information. She explained the process and the options available. She encouraged me to do more homework first (e.g. calling the town court, checking with insurance company etc.) before deciding whether to use their service. She also followed up with an email, showing me how to retrieve my NYS driving record. She’s professional, responsive and honest. Truly exceptional service, highly recommend! massa in ullamcorper.
