Case dismissed!
I had a speeding ticket from driving south on the FDR. Ticket stated I was 21 miles over the speed limit. Would have been significant point deduction and a large fine. All was dismissed. Took a little over a year in the system. Highly recommended.

I was so stressed about my ticket, and Mr Medows calmed me down and did even better negotiating on my behalf than I could have imagined. No Loss of points, downgraded to an expired meter! Thank you so much

Best Lawyer in NYC
James has been handling my speeding/traffic tickets since 2017. Let’s say since then we have had a huge success rate in being able to get my tickets won. I am so grateful because I was very close to losing my license but with James and his team I have been able to still drive around with no worries. I highly recommend him as I recommended him to numerous friends of mines.

James is amazing
James and his team were amazing. Honest, experts at their craft, and methodical in their follow up. They tracked my case as it took 3 years to make its way through the legal system and then got the case dismissed. Could not have been easier.

No Regrets
I got a speeding ticket that was marked in the 20-30 miles over the limit range, which would have been an expensive ticket, plus points on my license, and then the NY license reinstating fees that would follow. Without having to expend any of my own time and energy trying to fight this, James Medows took care of everything, from the moment I signed his retainer. Through his expertise on how to work the traffic court system and the language needed to break apart a ticket case, I was found not guilty. This was my first experience hiring a lawyer to handle a speeding ticket case and I do not regret it. I shopped around before going with Medows and his fee is very competitive and fair compared to others and his straight forward communication style and knowledge and experience in handling these cases is among the best in town. Though, his retainer fee is on par with the cost of such a ticket (and yet still better than a lot of other law firms), keeping it and the points off my record, as well as the additional costs those would incur to the DMV and my insurance were well worth every penny. Not to mention the satisfaction that comes from sticking it to "the man" for once.

Best traffic lawyer
I received a ticket for crossing over HOV divider. and the cop gave me many tickets totaling 14 points. I was very nervous and especially being the first ticket I received. However, James right from the start put me at ease and assured me that everything would work out. James and his team was able to plea my ticket down to no points and a small fine. I would highly recommend James, the best traffic lawyer. There were extremely responsive throughout the process and resolved all my concerns.
