Traffic Tickets Lawyers in New City, NY, Aggressively Advocating for Clients Accused of Moving Violations
If you spend enough time on the roads in New York, chances are you’ll get ticketed by police and highway patrol sooner or later. Sometimes it’s because we let our resolve slip for just a moment and make a mistake while driving, and sometimes, it’s just bad luck–you crossed paths with a member of law enforcement who needed to meet their quota.
It should be noted that traffic ticket quotas have been illegal in New York for over a decade. However, whistleblowers within New York police departments have raised the alarm about the continued use of ticket quotas.
In any case, the numbers show that New York law enforcement ranks among the top in the country for issuing traffic tickets yearly. How much of that is an unspoken (and regularly denied) quota system, and how much is maybe New Yorkers are poor drivers or traffic cops are strict? Who can say?
When we are ticketed for speeding or any other moving violation on the road, the first instinct might be to grumble about it but then reluctantly pay the fine or appear in court as scheduled. However, in some cases, it is worth it to take your case to experienced traffic ticket attorneys to discuss other potential options.
If convicted, traffic violations will remain on your New York driving record, causing an increase in insurance premiums and other potential complications.
Before you pay that ticket and admit guilt, contact the traffic ticket lawyers of Greenspan & Greenspan to discuss your case. Our legal team has decades of experience and could be valuable in limiting your exposure to fines, increased insurance rates, or even license suspensions.

Should you Contest Your Charge Even if you are Guilty of the Accused Offense?
Remember, you are innocent until proven guilty in a court of law. You have the right to remain silent and you do not have to offer incriminating testimony against yourself. Even if you committed the violations you have been accused of, you do not have to confess to that effect, and you do not have to volunteer your hard-earned money in payment for your fines quite so readily.
Please do not make it easier for the prosecution to secure a conviction, and do not pay your ticket at the earliest opportunity.
Instead, hire an attorney to represent your rights, and fight the charges in hopes of securing lighter punishments.
How can a Traffic Ticket Lawyer Assist you with Your Case?
Your attorneys may be able to see your charges dismissed altogether. You may win your case in the courtroom if the state cannot provide an effective prosecution. Our lawyers have often fought for more favorable deals for our clients, sometimes drastically reducing fines and penalties.
The sooner you bring your case to our law firm, the more time our lawyers will have to prepare your defense. We may build a case by gathering all vital evidence, speaking with eyewitnesses, reviewing police records, and investigating the police officer’s conduct.
Additionally, our attorneys and associates are very familiar with the judges and courtrooms of Westchester County and Rockland County, which provides us with helpful knowledge and experience for how to present the case in hopes of the most satisfactory outcome for our clients.
