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.

Don’t Pay the Ticket Before Talking to Us

I invite you to contact us for a free consultation. I understand that getting stopped by the police and being ticketed can feel embarrassing and be upsetting – especially if you feel you were wrongly ticketed. Let’s talk; I will explain the traffic court process and financial costs associated with fighting your ticket. In most cases, you do not have to appear in court. As your lawyer, I can stand in your place in court and in negotiations. This is especially important if you live out of the area and got stopped just passing through.

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!!
