“I am delighted with the outcome.  I would very much welcome the opportunity to recommend your services to others that may find themselves in a similar situation.   With most things, many people promise a level of expectations that often times are not met leaving one quite disappointed and with very little they can do about it. You took the time to explain things up front to me as well as explain how the matter would unfold every step of the way.  There were no surprises, other than the very pleasant outcome that you shared with me today.
Thank you so much Jamie!” – J.C., former traffic client, Amherst Town Court,  April 24, 2013.

Amherst Town Court is one of the busiest courts in New York State. The State University at Buffalo, a vibrant business community, retail shopping centers and the town encompasses a number of segments of the New York State Thruway System all contribute to increased congestion.

Judges.  Cases are heard by two judges, Geoffrey Klein, a former New York State Trooper, and Mark Farrell, who oversees the Drug Court Program in addition to his regular calendar.  Both judges are generally regarded as fair but firm, and try to treat each person before them in an even handed, consistent manner. Both judges are now full time.  As of April 2013, it is believed that Judge Farrell will retire at the end of this term.

Traffic Infractions.  The Court typically deals with speeding tickets in a uniform manner, offering reductions for first time offenders with attendance of a defensive driving course prior to the disposition of the ticket.  Unfortunately, if the ticket is not reduced to a non-moving violation, the driving course won’t eliminate points from your record.
