Consequences of a Traffic Conviction in Orangetown, NY

Even if you think it makes sense to plead guilty to a traffic ticket in Orangetown, New York, you should still talk to a traffic attorney before doing so. A guilty plea to a moving violation in New York could have long-lasting and severe consequences, including:

  • The Orangetown Court will contact the New York Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV). The DMV will then place the conviction on your driving record. Even if you happen to be an out-of-state driver who was ticketed while driving through NY, you can still be hit with points on your license, surcharges and other significant penalties when you go back to your home state.
  • The judge could decide to impose serious fines, monetary penalties and other court costs related to the disposition of your traffic matter. Sometimes it can be tough to pay an expensive traffic ticket while also trying to cover the costs of rising auto insurance after getting a ticket, so Mr. Katz will be there for you and do whatever he can to get your charges dismissed or reduced.
  • Your motor vehicle insurance carrier might decide to hike your auto insurance rates or even drop you from coverage entirely, depending on the severity of the traffic offense and whether you have any prior convictions.
  • The Orangetown Traffic Court judge could have the power to suspend or revoke your driving privileges in New York
Legal Process in Orangetown Traffic Court
  • Negotiate a Plea Deal before Trial: Mr. Katz has more than 36 years of experience practicing law in NY courtrooms. That experience has allowed him to develop advanced negotiating skills that he can and will use on your behalf. He will scrutinize the details of your particular traffic stop and determine whether the traffic cop violated your legal rights in any way. For example, if the traffic officer who ticketed you did not have probable cause to stop your vehicle in the first place, Mr. Katz may be able to convince the prosecutor to dismiss your ticket. Before the start of trial, I will discuss your traffic matter with the police officer and/or the prosecutor and attempt to work out a favorable plea deal, possibly getting the charges dropped or significantly reduced.
  • Trial in Orangetown Traffic Court: Mr. Katz prepares each and every case for trial; that way, he is never caught off guard in the courtroom.

Client Reviews
I was living a nightmare of being falsely accused in a judicial system that considers all fathers to be dead beat dads until proven innocent. Living out of state and facing the possibility of jail, I miraculously found Jon’s website and called his office. Within a week the tables were turned, the lies were exposed, and the harassment was stopped. If you need someone that will challenge the system, then you need Jonathan Katz. Greg Weaver
Jon’s integrity towards his clients is what makes him a standout attorney. He makes it a priority to know what's important to you. You’re not just a number. He is upfront with you right from the start. He will not string you along just for his financial benefit. He is only willing to settle the case if that's truly what you want. Anytime I called him I received a call back from him that day. Not someone else in the office. He is an attorney that has a passion for what's important to his clients. John Morrissey
Being a single mom, I had enough stress in my life. I had no idea how to go about protecting myself. My daughters were my priority. Jon walked me through the process. He turned a difficult time into a workable solution. Diane Chiriani
Jon thinks well, works to be clear and honest. He works to get to a strong argument. He seems to have a good working relationship with everybody at the courthouse. I get the feeling he has no trouble thinking like a judge. He is friendly and courteous. He doesn't overbill. He takes and returns calls promptly. His legal staff is friendly and competent. What's not to like? Rick S.
I liked that there was always transparency throughout my case. Genevieve H.
