What Happens in a New York Traffic Court?

I’ll work to negotiate your charges before trial. In many cases, the charges can be reduced or even dismissed before trial. A local New York lawyer, like myself, can improve your chances of success. If a negotiated deal can’t be worked out, I’ll defend your claim by making sure the prosecution cannot properly prove their case and I’ll assert all the appropriate legal and factual defenses. I’ll also follow through to make sure all the appropriate agencies and business are aware of any reduction or dismissal of the charges.

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'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).
