An experienced attorney can fight the charges or negotiate a plea deal, allowing you to keep your driving privileges and keep points from being placed on your record. At Tilem & Associates, PC, we offer free consultations to people charged with a wide range of traffic infractions, misdemeanors and felonies, from DWI to speeding.

Keep Points Off of Your Driving Record

Traffic Violations Lawyer Points assessed against your driver’s license for moving violations committed in New York can be very harsh. When charged with any violation, it is imperative that you plead not guilty and hire a competent legal team to defend you in court. Many times, our lawyers successfully negotiate plea bargains for our clients in which case our client will plead guilty to a lesser offense. Oftentimes, clients can sign an Authorization to Appear, thus eliminating the need to appear in court with us.

On top of the threat of license revocation, there is also a surcharge system in New York called the “Driver Responsibility Assessment.” Any time you have more than six points on your license, you are charged a civil penalty of $100 per year for three years. Each additional point costs you $25 per year. Your car insurance rates may also be increased. Costs accumulate quickly. Hiring a skilled criminal defense attorney may prevent additional points from being placed on your driving record.
