In most cases, we can save you time and money by appearing in Court for you and obtaining a plea bargain that will eliminate the points and reduce the fine, all without the need for you to go to driving school. If you plead guilty as charged, you will face points and a higher fine. By retaining an attorney, you will likely save money as compared to what would happen if you just send in your ticket with a plea of guilty.

If you have been charged with Speeding in Hamburg Town Court, we can help reduce or eliminate the points you would face. Instead of pleading guilty to a moving violation, we advise clients to plead not guilty and allow us to appear in Court on their behalf.

Where a client is from out of town, we appear without them to save their time, and simply notify them of the results, along with instructions on how to pay the fine and the deadline imposed by the Court.
When you receive a ticket, you have a choice of simply pleading guilty or pleading not guilty. If you plead guilty to speeding or any other moving violation, New York State will assess points against your driving record. New York will also share the record of that conviction with nearly every other State and the Provinces of Ontario and Quebec. In the case of speeding, when New York shares the record of your conviction, your home state or province will post points to your record at home.
As a result, our goal in any case is simple:
- Eliminate the points that would result from the charge;
- Reduce the fines that would result from the charge;
- Save the client’s time by appearing on their behalf.
