Harriman is a small village in the southeast area of Orange County, New York. Parts of Harriman are in Monroe and Woodbury, NY. Several major roads pass through Harriman, including New York Routes 17, 17M and 32, as well as US Route 6 and Interstate 87, the New York State Thruway. If you were ticketed while driving on any of these or on any other road in Harriman, NY, a knowledgeable traffic attorney may be able to help you fight your ticket.
Before you pay a fine for a traffic ticket in Harriman, NY, speak me, Jonathan D. Katz. I am a knowledgeable attorney and I’ve represented many clients who thought getting a traffic ticket made them automatically guilty. Not true! The reality is that police officers make mistakes. A knowledgeable attorney can make sure you explore all available options when fighting your traffic ticket, whether that involves inspecting faulty radar gun readings or challenging the officer’s probable cause to stop your vehicle in the first place. Without an attorney representing you, you may be more likely to incur severe penalties that include heavy fines, points on your driver’s license and even jail time. If you get too many points on your license within a certain time period, you could have your driving privileges suspended or revoked. Beyond that, the insurance company could raise your premiums if you are considered a “high-risk” driver.Traffic Charges in Harriman, New York

Pre-Trial Plea Bargaining: I have honed my negotiating skills over several decades of experience in New York traffic courts. Before your case goes to trial, I will speak with the police officer and/or the prosecutor. If the police officer who ticketed you made an illegal traffic stop or committed a procedural error before, during or after the traffic stop, I may be able to convince the officer that it is in everyone’s best interests to dismiss the charges.
Even if no mistakes were made with regard to your traffic ticket, I will negotiate with the officer and the prosecutor to potentially get your charges reduced to a non-moving violation that carries no points. If you were ticketed for multiple offenses, I will try to get all of them merged into a single charge.
