How Do You Fight a Ticket in New York?
The first step in fighting a ticket is to avoid paying the fine on your citation. This does not mean you will not owe for the traffic offense, though you might get reduced fines if you solicit the help of an attorney to fight your charges first.
If you pay your ticket right away, this is considered pleading guilty. Our experienced legal team can delay your proceedings to build a case and gather any evidence or witnesses.
It’s possible to get your speeding ticket charges dropped or reduced with the help of an attorney that understands local traffic laws. Contact our legal team to discuss your speeding ticket: (516) 809-7735.

Do I Need an Attorney?
With the combination of fines and New York surcharges, and high insurance premiums, speeding tickets can cost you hundreds to thousands of dollars over time. New York happens to be a stricter state on speeders, and judges don’t always accept just any plea bargain.
An attorney might be able to get your speeding ticket reduced to a non-moving violation or failure to obey a traffic sign or another lesser key. These reductions can help your record and lower your fines.
