Buffalo Traffic Violations Attorney

In New York state, even minor traffic offenses can have a major impact on your life. Every time you plead guilty to a traffic offense, you will pay heavy fines, get points on your license and risk the possibility that your insurance will dramatically increase. If you get 11 or more points within an 18-month period, your license will be revoked. You will not be able to drive your vehicle, register a car or apply for automobile insurance. The Law Offices of John J. Carney handles traffic offenses such as speeding, reckless driving, driving on a suspended license and any other traffic offenses. Over John Carney's career, which spans nearly 30 years, he has successfully represented many individuals in high-profile cases across the state.

Driving on a Suspended License Defense

In New York, your driving privileges can be suspended for any number of reasons, including failing to appear in court or pay fines. You may not even know if your license has been suspended if you have changed your address or if the court has failed to notify you that your license or registration has been suspended. Driving with a suspended license — or aggravated unlicensed operation, as it is known in New York state — is a serious crime that can lead to up to six months in jail, excessive fines and a criminal conviction. Our lawyers have extensive experience handling these cases and are often able to get the charges reduced to a simple traffic infraction and a nominal fine. This will avoid increases in your automobile insurance, probation, jail sentence and the loss of your driving privileges.

Driving Without Insurance

Driving without insurance in New York state is a crime that can have serious consequences. You can get up to one year in jail, $3,000 in fines and civil penalties, three years' probation and license revocation for up to a year. The Law Offices of John J. Carney is experienced in handling such matters and is often able to have the charges reduced to a traffic offense with a small fine.

Keeping Points Off Your Record

Many people who are charged with traffic offenses simply fill out the back of the summons; plead guilty; and receive a fine, points and even the suspension of their license. In most cases they would get much better results by paying a low flat rate to retain an attorney to plea bargain if there is a prosecutor, or to try the case in front of an administrative traffic court judge. Since the loss of your license could mean that you are not able to go to work, you cannot afford to lose your license; this will affect your freedom, employment and ability to travel for a year or more.
