1 Cardinal Road
Hyde Park, NY 12538
Hyde Park is a town located in the western part of Dutchess County, NY. Hyde Park is bordered by Poughkeepsie, Rhinebeck, Clinton and Pleasant Valley. If you were ticketed for a moving violation on any roadway in Hyde Park, it is imperative that you speak with an experienced traffic attorney.
Don’t pay a traffic fine before you have a chance to discuss your case with an experienced lawyer. People who have issued a traffic ticket often make the mistake of assuming that they are automatically guilty simply because a patrol officer cited them for a traffic violation. The reality is that police officers are not infallible; they can, and do, make mistakes. If you have a skilled attorney on your side, you may have additional options in court when the time comes to challenge your ticket. This is important because a traffic conviction could lead to severe penalties, including expensive fines and points on your driver’s license. If you accrue too many points, your license may be suspended or revoked. Beyond that, your insurance carrier might decide to raise your premiums or cancel your policy if you have too many points on your license. I am an experienced traffic lawyer who will persuasively argue on your behalf and do what is necessary to help you beat your traffic ticket in Hyde Park Town Court.
