Benefits of Hiring a Traffic Lawyer in New York

1) Protect Your Driving License from Points and Your Insurance from Increases

New York uses a point system to keep track of your driving.  Convictions for many traffic violations will cause you to acquire points. If you acquire too many points, 11 points in any 18 month period, and the NY DMV will suspend your license.  It is not difficult to acquire 11 points.  For example, a ticket for speeding 86 in a 65 mph zone is 6 points.  

Car insurance companies also keep tabs on their insured drivers and tickets will mean increased premiums and even dropped coverage.  Parents with careless drivers for children on their insurance policies get into trouble here.

2) Prevent Suspension and Revocation

While driving is a privilege, it is also a necessity; yet many people forget about or ignore tickets.  Ignoring a ticket is a common way to get suspended. Once suspended, and many people have no idea that they are, a traffic stop for any reason will turn into a misdemeanor AUO  charge.  An AUO charge means court appearances and a conviction will incur relativity heavy fines.

When you hire us, we are responsible for you. The court will deal directly with us so you won't miss anything. This is what we do, and we do it well, so you can concentrate on what you do without worrying. 

3) Avoid Additional Expenses

New York has enacted a Driver Responsibility Assessment law.  This law directs the DMV to assess fines in addition to any fines from the court.  For example, let's say you plead guilty to a speeding ticket for 86 mph on the New York Thruway.  After sending in the ticket the court would send a notice that you owed a fine of between $90-$300 and a surcharge of $85. 

Once the Court reported the conviction to the DMV, the DMV would record 6 points on your license.  The DMV would also make a Driver Responsibility Assessment and send you a bill for $100 each year for 3 years. Miss one of these payment and the your license will be suspended and your next traffic stop will include a misdemeanor AUO.  

4) Convenience 

For nearly all traffic infractions you will not have to appear in court. We appear for you and handle the rest by mail, email, and fax. After you hire our office, all we ask is that you pay attention to any calls or emails from us. 

5) Peace of Mind 

Navigating the New York Justice Court system can be confusing and aggravating. New York has over 60 counties and over 1200 justice courts. Each of these counties and court courts have different policies and procedures to work out a ticket. 

With our statewide practice, we have worked with judges, prosecutors and court and will guide you through the process. With experienced legal representation, you do not have to be concerned about the unknown because we are always available to answer your questions.

The Azira & Bruffett Law Firm was extremely halpful and successful in removing my traffic ticket

Google+ Review

David Bruffett resolved Speeding Violation very smartely. I contacted Attorney David receiving a speeding ticket over 100mph in NY, being a NJ driver. David was very professional and very clear on how to handle the issue (had very high points ticket but thanks to David who turned a stressful incident into a quick, easy and painless situation). Within a few months the issue was resolved and we are entirely satisfied with the outcome. I must say that David's help, support and guidance was very professional as well! I highly recommend David, if you have any traffic speeding tickets in the NY state. I found his services remarkable. He delivered more then he promised. I guess that what makes any client happy.

I had a great experience with them, I drive for a living and got a bad speeding ticket . They took care of it for me. 6 points to 0 would recommend them to anyone

Very Quick and Easy!

I called Mr. Azria due to a speeding ticket in another county. He gave me a price quote upfront and within a few days had gotten my 4 point offense reduced to a non-moving violation. All in all I only had to email him the ticket information and pay him a very reasonable fee(which I was able to do online). He did the rest, very convenient. He was very quick to respond to me and readily available if needed. Mr Azria also contacted me with updates via both email and regular mail. I am very satisfied with his services and will use him if needed in the future.
