Misdemeanor Traffic Offenses

Misdemeanor traffic offenses are much more serious than traffic infractions. Infractions such as tailgating, speeding and passing a red light or stop sign will result in fines and points on your record, but rarely result in jail time. Misdemeanor traffic offenses can result in fines and even jail time, but more importantly, can leave you with a permanent criminal record.

How Tilem & Associates, PC can Help

The consequences of such a conviction may be more drastic than you understand. It is important to speak to an experienced lawyer before making the decision to just plead guilty.

Our New York traffic crime attorneys have a history of convincing courts to free our clients from unreasonable penalties. We can negotiate for non-criminal pleas, lesser punishments or challenge charges in court.
