Knowledgeable advocate adeptly fights vehicle-related misdemeanor and felony charges
Some vehicle-related offenses are crimes, and a conviction means you have a criminal record that stays with you forever. If this is your situation, you need an experienced attorney to defend your case. Two of the more common driving-related charges are reckless driving and aggravated unlicensed driving of a vehicle. Reckless driving occurs when a driver:
- Unreasonably interferes with the use of the road
- Endangers others’ use of the road
Aggravated unlicensed driving of a vehicle is driving on a suspended or revoked license when you knew or should have known about the restriction. It can be charged as a misdemeanor, but if related to drunk or drug-impaired driving, can be elevated to a felony if there are prior convictions.
If you are facing charges for these or similar offenses, you should have an experienced attorney to defend you. I am highly skilled at defending against misdemeanor and felony driving-related charges and will explain how best to respond in your case.
Trusted law firm helps you understand the traffic ticket point system
New York has an intricate traffic ticket point system that penalizes drivers ticketed for certain moving violations. If enough points are accumulated on a person’s license, additional fines, license suspension and/or higher insurance rates may result. The number of points assessed is related to the seriousness of the infraction. For example, speeding tickets can result in up to 11 points being added, whereas an improper turn is two. If a driver amasses six or more points in any 18-month period, he or she will have to pay the Driver Responsibility Assessment fee for the next three years. The amount paid depends upon the type of infraction and the number of points accrued. I know the best strategies to save you money and points, and possibly avoid an insurance rate increase, and will use them to fight your case.
