Learn More About Going to Gardiner Traffic Court

The three main people involved in a Gardiner traffic court case are the police officer, the lawyer and the judge. Sometimes, there is also a prosecuting lawyer. Before the case begins, I will negotiate with the police officer and sometimes the prosecutor to see if there’s a way to:

  • Reduce the charges to a lesser offense such as a non-moving violation
  • Reduce the charge to one with less points
  • Merge the tickets – some officers write lots of ticket when one ticket is really the main violation
  • Dismiss improper or unprovable charges

My experience trying numerous cases, handling prior negotiations with the same officers and prosecutors and trying cases before the same judges gives me a negotiating edge. It help me phrase the legal and emotional arguments.

You Have a Right to Assert Your Defenses

If the defenses are factual, it helps if you appear. Most defense are legal, so you don’t have to appear. A lawyer can assert the legal defenses. The defenses will differ depending on the actual charge, what the police officer/prosecutor can really prove and the facts of the case.

If You’re Found Guilty of all or some of the Moving Charges
  • The NY DMV (Department of Motor Vehicles) will be notified, place the charges on your record and forward notice of the convictions to your home state or country – if there is reciprocity
  • You’ll have to pay the fine, penalty and court costs
  • Your insurance rates will probably increase when the insurance company gets notice of the convictions
  • Your license may be suspended or revoked
  • Any tickets that you win (through dismissal, a finding of not guilty or a reduction in the charges) will be cleaned from your record. If you advanced court costs, your costs should be returned

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!!
