I am 21 years old, have had a clean license since I was 16. I got a speeding ticket when I first got my license and pled it down. I just recently got a cell phone ticket. 1225(c) and I really don't want points. People keep telling me NY has a no...
First off, never listen to what your friends say. Second, you are asking a bunch of lawyers if you should hire one of us. Of course we are going to say yes. Rather than tell you yes, let me tic off some benefits of retaining counsel so that you can make an informed decision as to whether or not you should retain counsel. When you hire a lawyer:
* The lawyer goes to court for you so you don't lose time from school or work
* The lawyer gives a money back guarantee to reduce or eliminate the points
* The lawyer knows how to do the following that you don't:
* Do discovery and disclosure
* Prepare and conduct a trial
* Use the weaknesses in the case as leverage to negotiate a point reduction
* Spot an issue or issues which give rise to making a formal written motion to dismiss
* Has the know how to make a motion to dismiss
The above are the benefits of retaining counsel. If you think it's worthwhile in your case give some lawyers who specialize in speeding and traffic ticket defense a call.See question

I was in NYC leaving for the airport in the morning and got pulled over and ticketed by 2 different officers within 1-2 block radias. The first ticket says for "Disobey T/C/D". I was inside a tunnel and busted a U turn. No cops saw me. When I exit...
No, it is not a good idea to tell one trial judge that within the space of 2 blocks and half an hour you got another ticket. Do yourself a huge favor and retain counsel.See question
I appeared in court for speeding ticket. They said I could write a letter to DA to see if ticket could be reduced. I wrote a letter to the DA who reduced my ticket to a faulty muffler however now I received a letter from DMV saying I failed to res...
You are totally confused. The DA does not "write a letter" telling you that your license is suspended. This is what happens as it goes horribly wrong when you try to do it yourself. Find an attorney that specializes in this stuff and will get you unsuspended, go to court for you, resolve this matter, and put this thing to bed for good..See question
I got a ticket for no seat belt on a 10yr old . I showed the officer that she had a seatbelt on and he said she has No seat belt on and gave me a ticket even though she had a seat belt on. Is this ticket correct?
Sounds correct to me. This causes points and a huge insurance increase. The right lawyer can save you tons of time and money. Think about retaining counsel.See question
hi. 10days ago, we stayed in indoor water park resort.And My son got head injury on extreme slide in indoor water park.He is 12 years and He bumped his head during the slide,when he get down ride was stopped for 10-15mins,life quard was holding hi...
I would say no, because there is an assumption of risk of bumps and bruises. This is unlike the kid whose head got ripped off from the water slide in the midwest. You don't assume the risk of decapitation. In your case this is what we cal in the business a "liability issue," i.e., the accident occurred, but the person being sued is not liable for the damages.
Which raises another issue - damages, i.e., the degree in which your son is injured. Assuming he eventually makes a full recovery, his loss, i.e., "pain and suffering" is minimal. Which is yet another deterrent to a lawyer taking a case on contingency fee. Your son COULD HAVE been permanently hurt, he COULD HAVE been killed. But, he wasn't. He was just hurt a little bit. No lawyer is going to take the time and effort to undertake a case, even when there is clear 100% liability, when the damages amount to a $5,000.00 recovery.
Of course if your son take a horrific turn for the worse, then you may have something. This is because lawyers are willing to take greater risks to develop and prove a theory of liability the more zeros there are in the potential recovery. And again, as distasteful as it seems, economic recovery accrues and accelerates with the severity of the injury. A $10,000,000 injury at 30% liability is still worth $3,000,000.
Hopefully though, your son recovers well and you won't accrue any recovery. Best of luck!See question

i got a ticket for blocking a driveway but on the ticket the officer wrote the address from a lot across the st. is there any way to fight this ticket the address he gave me is also a driveway.
Yes, absolutely., Bring photos of the address where the offense was alleged to have occurred showing no driveway there. Remember, the burden of proof is on THEM to prove, NOT you to disprove. In other words, don't go in there running your mouth about where you WERE parked. Just show that the address of which they alleged you were at did not have a driveway. Good luck.See question
