Types of Speeding and Moving Violations I Handle

At my practice, Jonathan D. Katz, Attorney at Law, I represent clients in all types of Ulster County New York traffic violation cases, including:

Violations are Specific to the Type of Vehicle You are Driving Truck

Trucks have specific motor vehicles laws that have to be followed. Typical violations include:

  • Overweight
  • Over-length
  • Equipment violations
  • Unsecured load violations
  • Off truck route violations
  • Log book violations

If you depend on driving a truck to make your living, even one motor vehicle violation can have a negative impact on your ability to do your job. Additionally, the owner of the truck can also be held liable in some instances. I have experienced defending and winning cases for truck drivers and truck owners.

Commercial Driver’s License (CDL)

New York requires certain drivers to have a commercial driver’s license. This means that, in order to drive some trucks, buses, vans, etc., the driver must be properly trained and tested to make sure they have the skills to operate those vehicles. The extra protection focuses on the type of vehicle being driven and requires that drivers be properly trained.

If you drive a school bus drivers, tractor trailer, hazardous material vehicle, tank, and others, and you’ve received a traffic ticket, you are at risk for fines, points and maybe losing your CDL. If that happens, you will also be looking for other work!

A CDL is earned and granted state-by-state. However, if your CDL is in jeopardy in New York, and it gets taken away, you won’t be able to use it elsewhere. Additionally, points on your CDL issued by a New York traffic court transfer to your out of state license.

Client Reviews
I had a wonderful experience working with this law firm. They took care of everything for me, I did not even have to attend court. My 4 point ticket was reduced to a 0 pt violation , which I was very pleased with. Jonathan Katz and his associates worked in a very timely manner and I didn't have to worry or stress about the process at all. I live 2 plus hours from the area where the ticket was received and I was very pleased how minimally I was involved in the process yet, was kept very informed. Liz was very professional, effective, a pleasure to work with and made the process very easy for me. I would highly recommend Jonathan Katz law firm!! Nealie
I spoke with Jonathan's office for a speeding ticket and was treated with friendliness, fairness, and transparency. I'm in sales & customer service so I know when I'm being treated well and when I'm being treated poorly and they definitely treated me well. I received the outcome I expected and an extremely happy with the service! Ryan

Received a speeding ticket while driving through Plattekill, NY for driving 10 miles over the speed limit. I later forgot about the ticket. My license was later suspended for failure to answer ticket. I Googled a lawyer in Plattekill Town and found Jonathan David Katz. I spoke to his office, they assisted me in paying the scofflaw and lifting suspension. I hired them to represent me and the ticket was drop down to a parking ticket. I would definitely recommend his law firm and would work with him if needed. Anthony Bouchard
Truly excellent customer service! Not only did they reduce my 3 point traffic ticket to 0 points, but I did not have to attend court (since I live out of state).
