What you should do if you receive a traffic, speeding or cell phone ticket in Elmsford, NY?
The first thing that you must do if you receive a traffic ticket in the Elmsford Town Court is read the ticket carefully, and complete the "Not Guilty" section of the ticket and mail the ticket back to the Elmsford Village Court, 12 South Stone Avenue, Elmsford, NY 10523. By entering the not guilty plea quickly, you protect your driver's license from suspension or revocation.
DO NOT IGNORE your traffic ticket. Failing to answer or appear in court for the ticket may result in your driving privileges being suspended or revoked. Out-of-state licensed drivers can also have their privileges suspended both in New York and in their home State. It's even possible that you could be found guilty in your absence, thus preventing you from defending yourself.
This could end up costing you more than the fines and surcharges associated with the initial ticket as insurance premiums may increase for several years and you will be responsible for paying a mandatory $300.00 driver's assessment fee.
The good news is that all of these things can be avoided if you choose to fight your traffic/speeding ticket and hire the right defense lawyer.

Can my lawyer really beat my cell phone ticket in the Elmsford Village Court?
Yes we can. In fact, we have a proven track record of successfully defending our clients in the Elmsford Village Court.
One recent example involved a client that had both a cell phone ticket (a 5 point violation!) and a ticket for moving from his lane unsafely (a 3 point violation).
In total, our client was facing 8 points (out of an allowable 12 points) against his license which would have resulted in hundreds of dollars in fines, surcharges and DMV fees.
Our experienced defense lawyers were prepared to fight the infractions at a trial. Ultimately, the matters were reduced from two moving violations to a single parking violation, resulting in zero points on the client's license and a minimal fine.
