La Grange is a town in Dutchess County, New York. La Grange is connected to other Dutchess County towns by three highways: the Taconic State Parkway, NY State Route 55 and NY State Route 82. If you were issued a speeding ticket while driving on one of these roads, or on any other local roadway, speak with a qualified traffic lawyer.

A traffic conviction in La Grange, NY can leave a stain on your driving record. Do not assume that you have no choice but to plead guilty to a traffic ticket. Discuss your circumstances with a skilled traffic lawyer before you decide how to proceed in your case. A guilty plea to a moving violation could result in significant penalties, including:
- The La Grange Traffic Court will alert the NY Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV). Once the DMV puts the traffic conviction on your driving record, your insurance company could raise your rates. Additionally, the DMV could potentially suspend or revoke your driver’s license if you accrue too many points.
- The traffic court judge may hit you with expensive fines, monetary penalties and other court costs related to your traffic violation.
- Your insurance company might decide to drop you from coverage, depending on your driving record and severity of your traffic violation.
- Pre-Trial Plea Negotiations: The moment you inform me of the details of your traffic stop, I will start strategizing a strong defense for you. I will look over the official police report and investigate all aspects of your traffic ticket. I will discuss your case with the prosecutor and the police officer who ticketed you in order to arrive at an agreement that is favorable to you and that allows you to avoid serious penalties. My top priority will be to get your traffic charges dismissed entirely or reduced to a non-moving violation. In the event that you were ticketed for more than one traffic violation on the same ticket, I will negotiate with the officer and/or the prosecutor to get the charges merged into a single offense.
- Going to Trial: If your traffic case heads to trial, I will fight for you in the courtroom. I am an aggressive litigator with 36 years of experience handling traffic cases in local courtrooms throughout Dutchess County, New York, so I know how prosecutors think and strategize.
