Jonathan D. Katz, Esq. is a skilled local attorney with experience in traffic courts across New York, including Rockland County, Dutchess County, Orange County and Ulster County.
Do not assume that you have to pay a traffic fine or plead guilty to a traffic ticket in Upper Nyack, NY just because you were issued a ticket. Talk to a knowledgeable traffic defense attorney before you speak with the prosecutor in your case. Even if you think you may have committed a traffic violation, it is still in your best interest to explore all of your available legal options. The truth is that police officers are not infallible; they can make mistakes on the roadway.
Mr. Katz will examine the details of your case and make sure that the traffic cop and prosecutor are held to the highest possible standards. For example, if the radar gun used to clock your speed on the road was faulty or in need of maintenance, or the police officer did not have probable cause to make the vehicle stop in the first place, an attorney might be able to get the evidence in your case dismissed. Without qualified legal representation, you are more likely to be convicted and put at risk of severe penalties that include heavy fines, points on your driver’s license and even jail time. Moreover, if you accrue too many points on your license, your driving privileges in New York could be suspended for a very long time.
