  1. NYC bar association may be able to refer you to a list of attorneys that could help


  2. Contact a local attorney of a free consultation or call the clerks office on how to take care of fine.


  3. There is no plea bargaining in NYC Traffic Court so it's either plead guilty or go to trial. Use the Find A Lawyer tab on Avvo to look for a Traffic Court lawyer.

  4. I would suggest that you do a Google search with search terms such as " new york traffic violation bureau attorney" . This answer assumes you received the ticket in NYC and it is returnable in front of the TVB.

  5. This is specifically what I do. You cannot pay a fine and not get the points. You must plead not guilty and fight it. If successful, no points, no fine. If unsuccessful, points and fine. An attorney can increase your chances of being in the former category of being successful


  6. There is no plea bargaining in NYC , so you will have a hearing and there the ALJ will decide whether you are guilty or not. Fortunate for you I think you have a beatable ticket. Consult a lawyer
