Traffic Violations Attorneys Serving Suffolk County, New York
We have had great success in getting speeding tickets and other traffic tickets reduced to zero point violations or dismissed without the driver having to appear in court. We appear regularly on speeding tickets and traffic tickets/violations in the Suffolk County Traffic and Parking Violations Agency (“SCTPVA”) in Hauppauge, as well as the Justice Courts of the Town of Southampton, Village of Southampton, Village of Sag Harbor, Town of East Hampton, Town of Riverhead, Town of Southold, Town of Shelter Island, Village of Quogue, Village of Westhampton Beach, Village of West Hampton Dunes, Village of Port Jefferson and Village of Islandia. In addition,we appear in the First District Court in Central Islip, the Nassau County Traffic and Parking Violations Agency (“NCTPVA”), the Nassau County District Court and various Village Courts in Nassau on select matters. Each court has its own policies and procedures on traffic tickets so it is important to have an experienced lawyer working for you in order to minimize the impact on your driving record.
Points from traffic and speeding tickets can cause your insurance premiums to jump or result in a revoked or suspended license. It is estimated that insurance costs increase 18% after one moving violation and as much as 53% after three moving violations. Convictions for three speeding tickets or an accumulation of 11 points within an 18 month period will result in a loss of driving privileges. A combined total of 6 points within an 18 month period will trigger the imposition by DMV of the Driver Responsibility Assessment. Avoid points on your license, higher fines, insurance costs and DMV assessments by having attorney Paul Tuths handle your speeding ticket or other traffic ticket/violation in a Long Island court.
Paul Tuths takes a personal, hands-on approach to the defense of your speeding ticket. He will interview you over the telephone and through emails and review your documentation to obtain as much information as possible regarding the circumstances surrounding your speeding ticket. He will provide you with detailed information on how to respond to the speeding ticket and enter a plea of NOT GUILTY. After the speeding ticket is returned to the court with a plea of NOT GUILTY, the court sets a conference date at which time Paul Tuths will appear personally on your behalf and discuss a proposed reduction or dismissal with the prosecutor. We are able to proceed in court on most speeding tickets without your personal appearance based upon your written authorization in order to obtain a final disposition to your traffic ticket or summons. We prepare the authorization letter for you to sign. From start to finish, Paul Tuths will be the attorney personally handling your speeding ticket. We DO NOT farm out cases to other attorneys to make our court appearances on speeding tickets or moving violations. We use our many years of experience in the courts of Suffolk County and eastern Long Island to get the best possible result for you. At the conclusion of the court case, Paul Tuths will contact you to advise you of the final disposition on the ticket, the fine imposed by the court (unless the ticket has been dismissed) and the date by which payment of the fine is due.
