Did you get an unfavorable result when you represented yourself in traffic court?
Remember, just because you lost round one does not mean the fight is over.
Here at The Rosenblum Law Firm we understand the significance of appealing unfavorable decisions.
After all, this traffic ticket could be the one that causes you to lose your license, incur an insurance hike that you simply cannot afford, or otherwise devastate you financially.
For these kinds of traffic tickets, you should not give up the fight.
For a simple speeding ticket, you might not see the merit in an appeal.
However, pleading guilty to certain New York offenses could lead to an outright suspension or revocation of your driver’s license.
Others can tip the scale and cause you to lose your driving privileges due to accumulating too many points.
If you were blindsided by the fact that this was one of those offenses, a traffic ticket appeal may be your last chance to avoid it happening.
Similarly, certain NY traffic offenses are automatic red flags to police officers when they pull you over. After finding them on your driving record, they will not be lenient with you.
This means having a conviction for reckless driving, driving on a suspended license, or DWI/DUI already on your record could lead to an officer being more inclined to ticket you again if you are subsequently pulled over.
Ultimately, a traffic ticket can end up being much more serious than you might think.
What is Involved in a Traffic Ticket Appeal?
We can help you avoid all of the negative fallout of a NY traffic ticket by first filing a motion with the court in order to get your previous conviction back on the traffic court calendar.
Then, once the matter is back in the courts, we will do all that we can to negotiate with the prosecutor in order to have your ticket reduced to a penalty that will not be considered a red flag to officers or cause your license to be suspended or revoked.
In the event that the prosecutor will not reduce your offense, we will zealously fight at trial for you with all of the skills and expertise that we have to offer.
Remember, the time that you have to appeal your conviction is very limited in New York. Be sure to contact an experienced traffic ticket attorney as soon as possible.
Motion to Vacate a Conviction or Guilty Plea
Note that in some circumstances, a conviction or guilty plea can be vacated via a motion. There is a special procedure for this and an experienced attorney can advise you as to whether or not a motion can be made in your situation.
