If you were ticketed for speeding anywhere in Millerton, you should speak with a knowledgeable traffic attorney. I’m Jonathan D. Katz, Esq. and I’ve been helping clients fight traffic tickets in Dutchess County, NY for many years.
Before you decide to pay a fine or plead guilty to a traffic ticket in Millerton, NY, discuss your case with a knowledgeable attorney. Far too many individuals make the mistake of thinking they are automatically guilty of a traffic violation simple because a patrol officer gave them a ticket. Don’t make this mistake. A skilled traffic attorney can look over the details of your traffic stop and make sure you are aware of all your available legal options before you make any final decisions. For example, your attorney can potentially expose a faulty radar gun reading or challenging the patrol officer’s probable cause for pulling you over in the first place. If you do not have an attorney representing you, your chances of beating the ticket decrease significantly. The end result could be serious penalties, including costly fines, points on your license and even jail time. Moreover, a traffic conviction could cause your insurance company to label you a “high-risk” driver and subsequently raise your auto insurance rates.Fighting Traffic Violations in Millerton, NY
