If you’re dealing with a ticket and trying to navigate the rules the DMV sets out, don’t do it alone. Instead, seek out a Long Island lawyer to help you fight back and work to get your ticket dismissed.
Being issued a ticket can be upsetting and embarrassing. Worse, you’ll then have to deal with the Department of Motor Vehicles, or DMV, to handle your case. Unfortunately, fighting back can be especially difficult. You’ll need to fight your citation, but it’s your word against an officer’s.
Fortunately, you’ll have a chance to take action. While dealing with the DMV isn’t always easy, your Long Island DMV lawyer can help you recover. When you’re ready to begin, the lawyers at the Law Office of James Medows are ready to help you.
At first, you might be thinking that it’s not worth it to fight your ticket. You’re concerned about getting the dismissal you need to recover from your case. However, if you don’t act now, the penalties could be severe.
In short-term penalties, you’ll be facing a fine, which can get expensive quickly. You may be looking at hundreds of dollars in fines, which can affect your financial future.
Worse, you’re also dealing with points on your license. Those points can build up quickly, and that can affect your ability to drive. If you receive eleven points within eighteen months, you could lose your license. As such, it’s important to contact the Long Island DMV and fight your ticket.
When you’re given a ticket, you’ll first need to plead guilty or not guilty. This step can be done online, fortunately, saving you time spent in the DMV. Once you’ve pled not guilty, you and your Long Island attorney will need to determine the best defense for you and seek out evidence for your case. Fighting the officer can be tough, so make sure you have the information you need.
Once you’ve gotten your information, you’ll need to be ready for your court date. Once you plead not guilty, you’ll be given a day in court, where you’ll argue your case and fight to get your moving violation reduced or dismissed.
Unfortunately, it can be tough to fight back against your traffic ticket without help. The Long Island Department of Motor Vehicles has strict driving laws, and they’re not going to reduce or drop your ticket without all the necessary evidence. Fortunately, you will have a chance to fight back.
