How to find a traffic ticket lawyer who is best for you

In this short video Attorney Ginsberg will give you three tips on how to find the best traffic ticket lawyer for your needs.

My Pledge to My Clients

Rockland County Orange County Traffic Court Judge

I have been helping clients with traffic and legal issues since 1994. The court system often seems like it is mechanical and does not care about people. It is intimidating and can be confusing to those who do not deal with it every day. The reality is that the legal system is made up of good people who are under pressure to do their jobs well in a system they cannot change. The courts get more and more work every week. The judges, prosecutors, clerks, and personnel feel this pressure. I have made a point of getting to know the people who work in the courts, not just the judges and prosecutors. I do my best to empathize with them, deal with them respectfully and pleasantly.​​​​​​​

Over the years, I have earned their respect and goodwill. During this time, colleagues have become prosecutors and judges. There is no direct measure of the goodwill I receive. However, my track record indicates it is accurate. The pledge I make to my clients is as follows. I will listen to your account, review the charges with you and then develop the best strategy for you. Ideally, charges would always be dismissed. The truth is that will not usually happen. When it does not, I will adapt my strategy to your situation. You may need to keep points as low as possible, or you may need to keep the fines as low as possible. Some clients are trying to avoid a license suspension or even jail! No matter your situation, I will always do my best to bring about the most advantageous result we can. On this, you have my word​​​​​​.

Why do I need a lawyer

for a traffic ticket matter?

If you have a moving violation and are considering hiring a traffic lawyer in N Y, especially Rockland or Orange Counties, you’ve come to the right website.

You may ask why you would need a traffic ticket lawyer? Can’t you just do it yourself? This is a very common thought, and you may be able to negotiate a deal by yourself. However, are you giving yourself the best odds? Are you getting the best results in your specific situation? Before you choose to “do it yourself,” you should ask yourself a few questions that are listed below…

Five Reasons You Need
To Hire A Traffic Ticket Lawyer

  1. Do you have a full understanding of New York State traffic laws and how they can affect you?
  2. Have you built up years of goodwill, trust and positive relationships with the prosecutors, police officers, court clerks and judges?
  3. Do you stand to benefit from hiring a traffic ticket lawyer with more than 25 years of legal experience who will plan a legal strategy that is carefully designed to handle your traffic tickets and (where appropriate) negotiate an agreement for the best outcome for your particular circumstances (fines, points, effects on insurance rates, the ability to keep your license and more)?

Five Reasons Continued…

  1. What is your time worth? If the court is canceled or your case is not heard, you might spend many more hours than you planned and still not resolve your case, let alone obtain the best deal available. Schedules vary greatly – many traffic courts have sessions in the middle of a workday. Hiring a traffic lawyer will potentially save you time in that you will not have to take time off from work.
  2. What is it worth to turn over all of the aggravation, worry, and stress to an experienced attorney and be able to relax knowing that you are in good hands and that the matter will be negotiated as favorably as possible?

If you have any questions feel free to call attorney Ginsberg at 845-547-2500 and he will be glad to answer them.

    Case Study – traffic ticket for excessive speeding…

    My client received a traffic ticket for going 105 mph in a 55-mph zone and had a previous conviction for running a stop sign on his license.  He was assigned to one of the toughest traffic ticket judges in Rockland County.  The newspapers had reported the incident, which dramatically increased the possibility of jail time and his license being immediately suspended especially with the publicity of the incident.  The client faced the embarrassment of a jail record, the inconvenience of losing his driving license, a total of 13 points, a 3-year assessed DMV fee, and a large insurance increase.  The client immediately took a defensive driving course. In the end, the client kept his license and avoided jail time.

    Case Study – speaking on a cell phone while driving

    My client came to me with a ticket for speaking on a cell phone while driving which carries 5 points in New York.  I handled everything and appeared in court for the client.  Although I do not promise this result in all cases, I was able to negotiate a parking on pavement violation that carries no points.  The parking violation allowed the client to avoid both points and any insurance increase.  The fine which included all surcharges was $175.   I strongly advised the client to get a Bluetooth device and, in the future, to pull over to the side of the road if there was ever again a need to text anyone, as a similar ticket in the near future would result in the 5-point ticket being fully enforced.

    Frequently Asked Questions

    Click on the questions below to reveal the answers.

    Do you accept credit cards and Zelle?2021-11-30T20:37:36+00:00

    Yes, we do! You can use Zelle or most major credit cards to pay our very competitive fees.

    I received a parking ticket recently. Can I hire you?2021-11-03T22:34:25+00:00

    Sorry again. We do not handle parking tickets.

    I live in another state. Do I need to fight my New York ticket?2021-11-03T22:33:37+00:00

    That depends on many factors. In some cases, the convictions will show on your driving record in your home state. You can call Mr. Ginsberg to discuss the particulars of your case to see if it is worth fighting.

    So once you take my case, do I need to do anything else?2021-11-03T22:32:20+00:00

    In most cases, you can simply wait until the matter has been resolved. We will then contact you and inform you of the resolution, and what fines (if any) you must pay and by what date. Of course, we recommend that while the case is pending, should you receive any communication from the court about your case, you let us know immediately.

    If I hire you, does that mean I will not have to pay any fines?2021-11-03T22:31:40+00:00

    Sorry. Our representation means that we will fight for your rights and obtain the best result we can. In some cases, that may mean a full dismissal. But in most instances, you are still going to be liable for any fines that the court imposes after we resolve your case.

    But I can’t afford to hire an expensive lawyer to handle my case?2021-11-03T22:29:20+00:00

    Try us – you may be surprised! Our rates, which vary depending on the court, nature of the violation and other factors, are quite reasonable

    So how about if I fight my ticket myself?2021-11-03T22:28:38+00:00

    You have every right to do that. But an experienced traffic lawyer can, in many cases, get you a much better result than you would get yourself. Knowledge of the relevant law and court procedure, familiarity with police officers, troopers, and prosecutors, and experience with particular judges are all important factors. A small investment now may save you a lot of money in the long term.

    What’s the big deal of having a traffic conviction?2021-11-03T22:26:27+00:00

    In New York State, a conviction of a moving violation will be reported to the Department of Motor Vehicles. They will assess points against your license which may result in a suspension or revocation of your right to drive. You may be assessed a yearly state surcharge that will need to be paid. Also, your auto insurance company may decide to substantially raise your rates. The traffic fine may be just the beginning of a long nightmare.

     

    Can’t I just pay my ticket and not worry about it anymore?2021-12-10T23:40:30+00:00

    Yes, you can plead guilty, and you will be fined by the courts.  But, if you do, it will be treated as a conviction after a full trial and receive the points assigned to the violation, any surcharges and be subject to an insurance increase.

    Why should I choose Steven Ginsberg?2021-10-08T02:10:30+00:00

    While most traffic lawyers are competent, Steven Ginsberg goes the extra mile and applied all of his experience and good will to achieve your  goals

    Do I have to appear in court with my traffic ticket lawyer?2021-11-03T22:37:18+00:00

    Not in most cases. For the majority of traffic violations, your attorney will be able to appear on your behalf and dispose of the matter without you needing to take any time off of your schedule to travel to the traffic court.

    For certain traffic matters, your appearance may be required. If your situation warrants this, we will explain that to you.

    What are the advantages of having a Traffic Lawyer Represent Me?2021-12-10T23:42:11+00:00
