Traffic Violations Attorneys Serving Suffolk County, New York

Suspended License

A person’s New York State driving privileges can be suspended for a number of reasons, including, but not limited to, a violation of VTL 1192.1, a lapse of automobile insurance, a failure to appear for a traffic ticket or a failure to pay a traffic fine or DMV Assessment. Many drivers learn for the first time when they are stopped for a speeding ticket or other traffic violation and the police officer runs their license through his data base, that their driving privileges have been suspended. Many former New York State residents who are now out of state learn of a suspension of their New York State driving privileges when they apply for a driver’s license in their new home state. In this situation, the home state DMV runs a computer check and informs them that New York State suspensions have come up which must be cleared before the driver can receive a license in their new home state.

We often assist drivers with a suspended driver’s license by appearing in court on their behalf to answer and obtain final dispositions on outstanding traffic tickets so that suspensions may be cleared and driving privileges restored.

We appear on traffic tickets and violations in 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 and Village of West Hampton Dunes, as well as the Central Islip District Court and other town, village and traffic courts on Long Island including the Village of Islandia and Village of Port Jefferson.

 Our process

Paul G. Tuths takes a personal, hands-on approach to resolve your outstanding traffic tickets and to clear suspensions. We interview you over the telephone and through emails and review your tickets and driving record to obtain as much information as possible regarding the suspension of driving privileges.  We provide you with detailed information on how to clear suspensions. We take the necessary steps to restore a ticket to a court’s calendar, appear in court on your behalf, discuss a proposed reduction or dismissal of the ticket with the prosecutor and get the suspension lifted. Payment of NYS scofflaw fee is required before driving privileges will be restored. On most matters we are able to proceed in court without your personal appearance pursuant to your written authorization.  We prepare the authorization letter for you to sign. From start to finish, Paul Tuths will be the attorney personally handling your traffic case and license suspensions. We DO NOT farm out cases to other attorneys to make our court appearances on traffic matters. We use our years of experience to get the best possible result for you.


We charge on a flat rate basis for our legal services on traffic law matters. The amount of the charge depends on the number and nature of the traffic violations which the driver has received. Our flat rate charge covers all services including review of the traffic charges and driving record, consultations and correspondence with the driver, court appeareances and final wrap-up with the driver. There is no charge for an initial consultation on traffic violations. Our fee does not include any fines and surcharges which may be imposed by a court. All fines and surcharges are the sole responsibility of the driver. Payment of fines must be received at the court by the due date. If payment is not received by the due date, driving privileges will be subject to suspension by the NYS Department of Motor Vehicles.
