Pre-Trial Discussions: From the moment you retain my services, I will begin crafting strategies to help you beat your traffic ticket in Wallkill Town Traffic Court. Before your case even reaches trial, I will open negotiations with local the prosecutor and the police officer who ticketed you to see if I can get your charges dismissed or reduced. These negotiations typically take place the day of the hearing, prior to the start of trial. Many times, I will end up negotiating with the police officer and securing a reduced charge for a non-moving violation like improper parking.
Getting your charge downgraded from a moving violation to a non-moving violation could spare you from getting points on your license and save you from costly hikes in your insurance rates. If your traffic charge is particularly serious, such as a high-speeding offense, I will try to get the charge reduced to a lesser offense so you don’t lose your driver’s license. Additionally, if you were ticketed for multiple traffic violations on the same ticket, I may be able to get all of the violations merged into a single charge, which reduces the total number of points you face and potentially saves you hundreds of dollars in fines.
Going to Trial: If a plea deal cannot be worked out with the prosecutor or police officer, your case may very well head to trial. If this happens, rest assured that I live to beat prosecutors in traffic court. I provide first-rate defense against traffic charges and I will not hesitate to get creative when it comes to raising strong defenses on your behalf. I go the distance for my clients because I know how stressful it can be to face a traffic ticket in court.
Whether your ticket stemmed from a minor speeding ticket or something more serious, I know how to challenge the evidence. If the police officer committed an error when filing their official report, I can find it. If the road you were driving on was unsafe due to poor construction or inclement weather, I will note this for the court. If the police officer used faulty radar equipment, I will get to the bottom of it because I have handled countless traffic cases in New York courts.
