Dutchess County Traffic Courts

If you have been charged with a traffic violation in Dutchess County or anywhere in the Mid-Hudson Valley of New York, you may be facing steep fines, points on your license, insurance premium hikes and loss of driving privileges. In many cases, the possibility of jail time is real – especially for repeat offenders and those convicted of drunk driving.

Attorney Jonathan D. Katz Will Represent You in Traffic Court; You may not Have to Appear

Don’t pay the ticket fine before speaking with an experienced Dutchess County traffic ticket lawyer. Paying the ticket is the equivalent of pleading guilty; you will face all the penalties associated with the charge.

The first thing you need to do is contact a knowledgeable lawyer who understands NY traffic laws and has the experienced to fight for you. When you call Jonathan Katz, Esq., you can rest assured he will put his more than 36 years of experience in traffic courts to work for you.

Why Choose Jonathan Katz to Fight Your Traffic Ticket?

A moving violation conviction can put your driving privileges at risk. Too many points will impact your insurance rates, too. Before you pay the fine, contact Mr. Katz by calling 866-939-2993.

In many cases, Mr. Katz will be able to stand in your place in court so you won’t have to take time off of work to appear and fight your ticket. This is especially helpful for a driver from out of the area, a Canadian citizen, for example.

He can help you avoid insurance premium hikes, points and help you keep your driving record clean.
