What are the Penalties for a Traffic Conviction in Rockland County, NY?

Depending on the particular traffic charges you face, you may be subject to significant penalties if you are convicted of a traffic offense in Rockland County, New York. Many local prosecutors in Rockland County courts take traffic charges very seriously and often seek the most severe punishments. Moreover, local traffic cops in Rockland County often cite drivers for multiple moving violations on the same ticket, resulting in additional points on the driver’s license and enhanced penalties.

It is crucial for you to have a qualified traffic defense lawyer on your side when you contest a traffic ticket. A skilled attorney may be able to get your charges dismissed or downgraded, saving you points on your license and preserving your driving privileges in New York. This is important because too many points on your driver’s license could lead to suspension or revocation of your license. If you accrue 11 or more points within an 18-month period, your license will probably be suspended. Beyond that, a spotty driving record that marks you as a “repeat offender” could lead to revocation of your driver’s license.

You do not want to jeopardize your ability to drive in New York. If you lose your license for an extended period of time, you might find it difficult to get to and from work, school or anywhere else you need to go on a daily basis.

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.
