Have You Been Pulled Over For Speeding In New York?

Reasons To Hire An Attorney After You’ve Been Written Up For Speeding
You have many decisions to make after you have been charged with speeding. You could simply pay your ticket and accept the challenges that come from it, or you could contest the ticket. You could represent yourself, or you could hire an attorney.
First and foremost, attorneys know traffic law. Your attorney has experience and knowledge of all aspects of New York’s traffic law, which means that they can give you additional information necessary to make a truly informed decision. Especially if you are from out of state and passing through New York while traveling, that additional knowledge could be essential.
You will also save money. Simply paying the ticket to avoid court time will result in paying the maximum possible fine for the charge. Fighting back against the ticket could decrease the penalty you have to pay.
You might discover an alternative you never would have thought of. Your attorney can help you explore all your options. They could help you contest the penalty to decrease the fine you have to pay or have the charges dismissed altogether.
No matter how you decide to handle your ticket, it is a good idea to speak with an attorney before making that decision. A free consultation with a New York criminal defense attorney can help you explore which options are right for you.
