About me

I am very proud to say that I am simply the best NY, CT and VT traffic court defense lawyer. This is not what I alone say, but this is what my clients say. When you read our testimonials you will see that our clients could not be happier with our responsiveness, accessibility, ease of service, but most of all results.


I am also proud of our mission statement - to bring quality and affordable legal representation to New York motorists charged with speeding, moving violations, DUI, and automobile crimes. We have been executing on this mission since the inception of my law firm.


I realized that the public needed such a focused legal service when I first started practicing criminal defense and would watch motorists, unrepresented, try to defend themselves. What was needed was a law firm savvy enough to create a business model to provide high quality criminal defense cost effectively to New Yorkers charged with speeding and other infractions. Out of that idea http://www.AttackThatTicket.Com was born. The service could not be more affordable and convenient. Our clients do not have to go to court or come to our office, can pay by credit card, and we charge 1 low flat fee.


The second thing I did was partner up with just a tremendous trial attorney, my good friend and business partner Mark Kosofsky. Partnering up made each of us stronger, better attorneys and better advocates for our clients. We opened practice areas that neither one of us could have done on our own. Mark has been practicing personal injury for over 20 years. Mark has recovered millions for his clients injured in auto accidents, slip and falls, and the like.


Today our clients benefit from our growth. We have expanded to include almost the entire Northeast for speeding and traffic ticket defense.  Our office is licensed in NY, CT & VT, and we have affiliate referral counsel in NJ, MA & RI. And we continue to expand. 


If you have a speeding ticket, traffic ticket, or any other type of summons, don't do anything until you call us. And I invite you to call us - today - toll free at 1-877-99-No-Tix (1-877-996-5849).
