Traffic Misdemeanors

New York Traffic Misdemeanors Attorneys

Please fill out our Intake Form.

Misdemeanor traffic offenses are much more serious than basic infractions. Infractions such as tailgating will result in fines and points on your record and rarely could result in jail time. Misdemeanor traffic offenses can result in fines and even jail time but more importantly can leave you with a permanent criminal record.

How We Can Help

If you plead guilty to a misdemeanor traffic violation, you will have a permanent criminal record in the State of New York.  In addition,the court will not deliberate much about what punishments to give you. You will get the standard fines, points on your license, and possibly jail time, without the opportunity to give your side of the story and possibly get a reduced sentence.

Our attorneys have a history of convincing courts to free our clients from unreasonable penalties. We can negotiate for non-criminal pleas, lesser punishments or challenge charges in court. Often, if you take a misdemeanor traffic violation to trial, police officers may not bother to present enough evidence or even show up to court.
