Although it’s possible you won’t be required to appear in Dover Traffic Court to answer your traffic charge, you should still speak with a lawyer who has your best interests in mind. Do not mistakenly think that you are automatically guilty just because a police officer pulled you over and cited you for a traffic offense. A knowledgeable traffic attorney can look over the details of your case and help you explore your available options. I have successfully defended countless clients against charges for speeding, failure to yield, driving under the influence (DUI) and every other traffic violation in New York.

Trial Procedure in Dover Town Traffic Court
  • Pre-Trial Plea Deals: I know how to negotiate with prosecutors and police officers because I have decades of experience defending clients against traffic charges throughout New York. I will scrutinize the circumstances of your traffic stop and determine whether the police officer had a legal right to pull you over in the first place. If the officer did not have probable cause or if they committed a procedural error or other mistake, I can potentially fight to get your charges dismissed before a trial. Prior to the start of trial, I will discuss your case with the police officer and/or the prosecutor and attempt to negotiate a plea deal to get your charges dropped or reduced to a non-moving violation such as improper parking. If the police officer issued you a ticket for multiple traffic offenses, I may be able to get all of the violations merged into a single offense.
  • Trial in Dover Traffic Court: I know how important it is for you to keep your driving record clean and avoid significant penalties. That’s why I always prepare every traffic case with the expectation that we will be headed to trial. If the time comes for me to fight for you in Dover Traffic Court, I will not hesitate to cross-examine witnesses and destroy the opposition’s evidence in order to win your case and help you beat your traffic ticket.
