We help many drivers licensed outside New York State. Many out-of-staters call mention that, unlike their home state, the NY ticket does not state how much the fine will be, how many points the conviction will be, or any other consequences of pleading guilty. Prompted by our out-of-state clients, here are answers to 7 questions that are not answered by looking at the ticket. 1) How Many Points is My Ticket? Points attach as a matter of law for each conviction, even though you will not see any mention to them on the ticket or even in court. The most common tickets are issued for speeding...

Yes, the officer may visually estimate your speed and the judge may rely on the officer’s opinion of your speed to support a conviction. Of course, the officer has to be properly trained in such independent visual estimation, have experience in doing so, and have an acceptable level of accuracy.

A traffic diversion program gives you the opportunity to have certain tickets dismissed. There are currently six counties in New York with such programs. So if you have a ticket pending in any court in Allegany, Broome, Livingston, Otsego, Tioga, or Wyoming county, this article is for you.

If you received a second page attached to your uniform traffic ticket, it is likely a Supporting Deposition / CPL 710.30 Notice. This second page combines the Supporting Deposition, at the top of the page, with an NYS Criminal Procedure Law 710.30 notice, at the bottom of the page. The NYS CPL 710.30 notice makes you aware of any statement that the People intend to use against you. If you made any statements to the officer, that they intend to use against you when prosecuting your case, those statements will be provided at the bottom of the supporting deposition. What is a Supporting...

"Traffic Infraction is defined by the New York Vehicle and Traffic Law section 155.  A traffic infraction is not a crime. If you are charged with a traffic infraction, as opposed to misdemeanor or felony, it means that you do not have to appear in court and you may answer the ticket by mail.  That answer may be "guilty" or "not guilty." We strongly advise against pleading guilty without first seeking a reduction. A misdemeanor, on the other hand, is a classified as a crime and requires a physical appearance in court for an arraignment. Misdemeanors also...

This article was adapted from partner David C. Bruffett's chapter in "Inside the Minds: Strategies for Defending DWI Cases in New York, 2015 ed. published by Aspatore Books. Please call (315) 364-1155 or email us for a free consultation with Mr. Bruffett about your DWI case. I challenge the prosecution’s discovery practices and evidence in a DWI case early on, way before trial. I first try to bring any challenges to the DA because DA’s are busy; they have dozens of cases, and they rarely want to spend a lot of time and effort on a case...

This article was adapted from partner David C. Bruffett's chapter in "Inside the Minds: Strategies for Defending DWI Cases in New York, 2015 ed. published by Aspatore Books. The negotiation process in a DWI case generally includes an effort to reduce the charges to something less serious. For instance, if my client is a first time offender with a BAC under .13, a common result is getting the charges reduced to Driving While Ability Impaired (DWAI) with a fine of $500 and a surcharge of $260. The sentence is generally a conditional discharge with an instruction to...

You do not necessarily have to consent to take the field sobriety tests in New York State; that decision is completely up to the driver.

I'm Canadian, got speeding ticket for driving 74 mpg in the 55 zone. Mr. Habib and staff reduced it to no points and less fine. Pleased with service and outcome. Would recommend it.

After thinking this was a lost cause, my insurance could've gone up and my license been revoked for a speeding ticket and unlicensed operator ticket. Mr. Ralph Habib was able to successfully reduce both charges. Anyone wondering if you should fight a ticket, do so! You have a higher possibility of reducing the charge and pay less by being represented than just paying the tickets and seeing your insurance go up! Highly recommend Mr. Ralph Habib.
