Speeding Ticket Lawyer for Suffolk County and Nassau County Traffic Courts
When you receive a speeding ticket on Long Island, the consequences can be severe. This is why you should never plead guilty to a speeding ticket or just pay the fine (which is the same as pleading guilty) without fighting it. Pleading guilty to a speeding violation will result in the speeding ticket being listed on your abstract and the addition of points to your driving record, which can result in increased insurance premiums and possible DMV penalties or driver license suspension.
As such, it is crucial that you have an experienced speeding ticket lawyer in your corner. If you have received a speeding ticket in Suffolk County or Nassau County, finding a reliable attorney who is familiar with the local courts and their individual procedures and preferences is essential to achieving the best possible outcome.
Speeding Ticket Lawyer - Do I Need One?
1. Suffolk County and Nassau County Traffic Courts - Knowledge of the Local Laws
Defending a speeding ticket in Suffolk County or Nassau County requires a thorough understanding of the local traffic laws and regulations including any recent changes or amendments to the traffic laws. A local traffic attorney with extensive experience in the Suffolk and Nassau traffic courts not only understands the traffic laws but is also familiar with the particular rules and procedures that are followed in these courts and knows the best way to assure that your traffic ticket is handled efficiently.
2. Nassau County & Suffolk County Traffic Courts - Knowledge of the Local Court Procedures
Fighting a Long Island speeding ticket is very different from the procedure in other parts of the state. Each court has different procedures and each prosecutor and judge in the Long Island courts are persuaded by different arguments, evidence and proof. An experienced local attorney who appears in the local courts on a regular basis is familiar with the evidence that is most persuasive in each individual court in Suffolk and Nassau County and knows best what is needed to assure the best possible resolution of your traffic charges.
3. Moving Violation Penalties and Consequences are Minimized
A skilled speeding ticket lawyer will work diligently to minimize the penalties and consequences associated with your speeding ticket. Efficient defense of your speeding charges requires an in-depth knowledge of the law as well as court procedure which requires:
- Examination of details and circumstances of your particular case
- Review of any applicable evidence
- Consideration of all weaknesses in the prosecution's case
- Identification of any defects in the traffic ticket
By thoroughly examining your charges and with the use of our negotiation skills, we are often able to negotiate reduced charges to charges with lower points or no points at all. We can negotiate the fines and, in some cases, get a ticket dismissed altogether.
4. DMV Points Avoidance
By effectively defending your traffic violation and getting your charges reduced, a traffic attorney reduces or eliminates the points that are recorded on your license. Points on your record need to be avoided for many reasons. The two main reasons are:
- If you accumulate 6 or more points, the DMV issues a Driver Responsibility Assessment. The assessment is $300 for the first 6 points and $75 per point over
- If you accumulate 11 or more points within an 18-month period, the DMV will suspend your license

5. Driving Record and Insurance Rate Protection
The most important effect of a speeding ticket conviction is the impact it can have on your driving record and insurance rates. A moving violation remains on your driving record for more than 3 years from the date of your conviction.
Moving violations on your record is what insurance companies use to determine your insurance premium. Just one speeding ticket can lead to a significant insurance premium increase. A speeding ticket lawyer will work diligently to protect your driving record in order to keep your insurance rates manageable.
