Don’t plead guilty. Use an experienced New York traffic lawyer.Hardenburgh Traffic Court: What You Should Know About the Process?
The three main people involved in a Hardenburgh traffic court case are the police officer, the lawyer and the judge. Sometimes, there is also a prosecuting lawyer. Knowing the Hardenburgh roads, police officers, prosecutors and judges helps. I have that experience. My knowledge lets me make the right factual, the right legal and the right emotional arguments to the right people. There are no guarantees, but direct experience in Hardenburgh traffic court does make the negotiations more persuasive.Trying the Case
If a negotiated deal can’t be reached, the police officer and the prosecutor have the burden of proving their case beyond a reasonable doubt. The officer has to testify using only his direct knowledge. I will have the right to cross-examination of the police officer in every aspect of the case – when he/she first saw you, why they stopped you, why they wrote the ticket(s).
- Your defenses – If the defenses are factual, it helps if you appear because you will have to testify. As your lawyer, I can assert the legal defenses, without the need for you to appear. The defenses will differ depending on the actual charge, what the police officer/prosecutor can really prove and the facts of the case.
The results. Your charges will be dismissed (if you’re found not guilty) or sent to the NY Department of Motor Vehicles.
You may have to pay a fine, penalty or court costs – If the charges have been reduced, you will have to pay much less. That’s one of my aims (other than having the charge dismissed) — to reduce the consequences.
If you’re found guilty of any charges, those charges may be forwarded to the state or country that issued your license.
Your insurance rates will stay the same (the charges were dropped or sufficiently reduced) or they will increase (for more serious violations).
Your license may be suspended or revoked.
A speeding ticket and other traffic violations can put points on your driver’s license. Too many points can lead to an increase in your insurance premiums and the possible suspension of your license.
