Why Hire a Traffic Lawyer to Fight Your Traffic Ticket?

Because if you don't "fight" your ticket, you will have a conviction and all the consequences that come with it. It is best to always minimize the impact every ticket

Filling out "Section A - Plea of Guilty" and mailing your ticket to the court is a conviction and makes you subject to all the points and fines allowed by law.  Your insurance company may increase your rates or even drop coverage. The best policy, even if it is your first ticket, is to contest the charge to minimize the impact on your record. 

For example, let's say your speeding ticket alleges that you drove 74 mph in a 55 mph zone.  If you plead guilty, the DMV will add 4 points to your driving record and the court will impose a fine $90-$300 and a surcharge of $93. A reduction to the no-point violation of Stopping, standing, or parking outside of business or residence district would mean a fine of $0-$150 and $25 surcharge.  A reduction to the no-point Equipment violation of, for example, a noisy muffler or broken light would mean a fine of between $0-$150 and a $55 surcharge. Learn more about points and fines.

For most people, the points are the primary concern and rightly so because you will be paying any increased insurance premiums long after you have forgotten about the fine. Moreover, the New York DMV will impose a Driver Responsibility Assessment on all NY drivers that accumulate 6 or more points in any 18 month period. For 6 points, the assessment is $100 per year for 3 years and for every point over 6, there is an additional charge of $25 per point.

Thank you Esq. Bruffett!

He negotiated a reduction of my 4 point ticket to a 0 point, and a $77+63 fine/fee. I am very thankful for Attorney Bruffett and his team's very professional, courteous, in time correspondences and services. Will recommend him and the firm to anyone who may need their services.

Excellent Lawyer

My job requires me to have a clean driving record. I recently received a ticket in Hancock township and hired Seth. He was able to get the ticket reduced to a non moving violation so no points on my license. Excellent attorney, very responsive and great staff. I highly recommend him.

Perfect

As mentioned in many of the other reviews. Seth and Monica spelled out what should happen and it did. Ticket for my daughter from our of state was reduced to nonmoving violation. She was visiting colleges in NY, as she only has her permit a moving violation would have resulted in, a loss of her license for 3 months, driving school, and fines etc... 
I had no referral, just read the reviews and crossed my fingers. The price was affordable, they were very responsive, I could not be happier. Wished I had used him a couple of years ago when I got a ticket in NYC that I made the very expensive mistake of trying to defend myself...

fter 6 years of obeying the speed limit (or rather, not getting caught), my luck ran out and I was stopped for a 74/55. I called David and he immediately remembered me from 6 years ago and was happy to help me out again! I was impressed yet again, both with his professionalism , communication, and expedience (also impressed that the rate was not much more). After many failed attempts at managing this ticket myself and contacting the Court, David was immediately able to get the attention of the relevant parties. Within weeks, my ticket was completely dismissed! I cannot recommend David and his office enough! Although I would rather not need to seek this kind of counsel, I am sure I will be calling him back next time I find myself seeing blue in my rear view. Thanks David!

After getting two tickets within a month, David reduced my retainer fee on the second ticket as a "returning client" discount. I knew I had made the right choice at that point. David was personally accessible to any and all concerns that I had regarding my tickets. His staff was also very pleasant and extremely diligent in making sure we had everything in place. David was successful in negotiating what could have been a total of 8+ points between two tickets down to only 2 points. I will refer David to all of my NY friends as my experience made the best out of an otherwise unfortunate situation.

Made the whole process easy

Seth was great. I had various infractions that required appearance. Payment and process were clearly spelled out and required little attention on my part. He was quick with correspondence and got me the best deals with lowest fines. Will absolutely use him again if ever in need of an attorney.
