The Steps Involved in Going to Rochester Town Justice Court

First, there’s negotiation before trial. The three main people involved in Rochester Town Justice 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, to reduce the points, to merge multiple offenses into one offense, or to eliminate the charges altogether.

Through my experience trying numerous cases, I know the factual and legal arguments to make that can help persuade the police officer and the prosecutor. I also know, because of prior work with many of the officers and prosecutors, where they are likely to bargain and where they’re not.

Next, we try 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) and that the evidence was properly presented. The police officer must appear. The police officer must be able to prove the facts listed on the citation. The police officer and/or the prosecutor must be able to prove that a motor vehicle law was violated. Not every wrong deserves a citation.

Effect of the Judge’s Decision
  • Your record

    • If found not guilty of all the charges, your record will show no violations for this set of charges

    • If found guilty of any moving violations, your convictions will be sent to the NY Department of Motor Vehicles and to your home state or home country if NY has reciprocity with your home locations

  • Fines, penalties and costs

    • If found not guilty, any money you paid into the court should be refunded

    • If found guilty, you will have to pay the expenses for only the charges the judge found you guilty of committing

  • Your insurance rates

    • If found not guilty, your insurance rates will normally not be affected. Though insurance companies may raise your rates for some related reasons – such as – if there was an accident

    • If found guilty, your insurance rates will increase to match the seriousness of the convictions

  • Your license may be suspended or revoked if you’re found guilty

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

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 would definitely recommend his law firm and would work with him if needed. Anthony Bouchard
