About Paul

Learn Paul’s areas of practice.

Practice areas
  1. Speeding and traffic ticket
    I appear on speeding and traffic tickets in the Southampton Town Court, Southampton Village Court, East Hampton Town Court, Riverhead Town Court, Quogue Village Court, Westhampton Beach Village Court, Southold Court and SCTPVA.

    31 years

  2. Criminal defense

I have had tremendous success in obtaining reductions and dismissals of traffic tickets, including speeding tickets, in the Justice Courts of eastern Long Island, including the Town of Southampton, Village of Southampton, Village of Sag Harbor, Town of East Hampton, Town of Riverhead, Town of Southold, Village of Quogue, Village of Westhampton Beach and Village of Westhampton Dunes as well as the SCTPVA in Hauppauge. I also appear in Central Islip First District Court on the misdemeanor charges of Aggravated Unlicensed Operation (VTL 511) and Suspended Registration (VTL 512). I take a hands-on approach to the defense of your traffic ticket. I will provide you with detailed information on how to enter a plea of NOT GUILTY. After the ticket is returned to the court with a plea of NOT GUILTY, the court sets a conference date at which time I appear and discuss a proposed reduction or dismissal of the ticket with the prosecutor. I am able to proceed on most traffic matters (including speeding tickets) without your personal appearance. From start to finish, I will be the attorney personally handling your traffic matter. I do not farm out traffic cases to other attorneys. I use my many years of experience to obtain the best possible result for you. At the conclusion of the case, I will contact you to advise you of the final disposition, the fine imposed by the court (unless the ticket has been dismissed) and the date payment of the fine is due.  I received a Masters in Social Work from Fordham University and worked in the area of social services before attending St. John's School of Law. My MSW and work experience prior to law school give me a special ability to work with clients and relate well to court personnel. An ability to work well with others in the court system is an important factor in obtaining the best possible outcome for clients on traffic violations and speeding tickets.

I retained Mr. Paul Tuths to represent me at a hearing at the Southampton Town Court. Paul is throughly professional, was great about returning calls and email, charges a reasonable fee, and, most important, delivers meaningful results. Without divulging my circumstances, he was able to get three traffic violations reduced to a single parking infraction. Paul’s fee more than paid for itself, in both potential fines and points. I owe Paul a debt of gratitude, and I recommend Paul without reservation.

Excellent attorney for speeding tickets in Southampton area!
Paul is courteous, honest and straightforward. He was able to negotiate my 6-point speeding ticket down to a no points parking violation; moreover, he was receptive to emails and provided timely updates. His fee is comparable to other attorneys in the area, but his reputation and experience in the Southampton, NY area are what set him apart.

Paul was able to beat 2 of my speeding tickets. I highly recommend his services. Thank you, Paul! You are awesome!

Persistent, fair and very competent.
Paul was outstanding representing my son. He appeared twice on his behalf and never asked me for any additional payment. He delivered a satisfactory resolution to the matter and persisted until such outcome.

Straightforward, responsive and got the job done
Successfully negotiated my 6 point speeding violation down to a parking violation - as he suggested he would. No nonsense and easy to deal with lawyer. Would recommend.

Speeding ticket and no turn signal
Smooth process. Send paperwork and wait for final results. He kept me informed throughout the process and he was able to remove all 6 points from my ticket.

Case dismissed!!
Paul was very informative and gave me a very real assessment of the best-case/worst-case scenario I would most likely be facing. In the end, his diligence got me a dismissal on a potential 6-pt moving violation on my license, my best-case scenario. Easy to work with and good with correspondence - would definitely work with him again!

Well served
I was caught speeding on 495 with out-of-state plates, thinking that the speed limit was 65, not 55. What would have been a 6 point penalty on my license was pleaded down to a fine for a parking violation. I could not have been better represented by Mr. Tuths.

A true GENIUS in Eastern Long Island named Tuths .....
Being from NJ, I dealt with Mr Tuths via email. He not only had an old ticket of which I pled guilty to vacated...... but ultimately DISMISSED. All in just one day.... The man did MORE than he promissed...... A true professional.... Thanks Mr. Tuths !!!

Great lawyer
Mr. Tuths was able to get my 6 point (85 mph) hour ticket down to a zero-point parking violation. He is very responsive to emails and very helpful. I highly recommend this lawyer for any traffic violations you may have.
Posted by Caroline | May 7, 2014
Highly recommended!
Extremely affordable! He knocked my speeding ticket from a 6 pointer to a no pointer and I didn't have to deal with any court dates or anything! Quite spectacular!

Best lawyer out there
Great lawyer, good price and the most important, he did what he said he was going to do. He responded to all me emails no matter what time I wrote them. Kept me informed the whole time. Will recommend to everyone I know!!!

Worth Every Penny.
Got a speeding ticket on 27 in southampton from a state trooper. 6 pts + $425 fine. Paul got it reduced to a no points parking violation and $155 fine. Never worked with Mr. Tuths before but if I ever need his help again, I'll definitely call him.

Great Job!
Paul was great, he took care of my case (Traffic Ticket) in a very professional manner. Whenever I called him for any question concerning the case, he was available and very patient. He was very knowledgeable with the Southampton court system and most importantly, he was extremely trustworthy. He never charged me an extra dime of what was settled on and if there was a chance that he would have to charge more, he would explain why and give me the exact amount it would be. His email communication level was again, very professional and very detailed. You can't go wrong with his services, it was a pleasure to have him representing me. Great Job!

Paul gave me the best advice he knew. I took it a ran with it, and the rest was history. Case was dismissed and he got the job done like a champ. Great lawyer I would recommend him to anyone.

Great Experience
I'm very happy with my entire experience with Paul. Knowledgeable, honest, responsive and most importantly...effective! Paul cleared (better yet, completely dismissed) my speeding violation where the MPH sign go from 50mph to 35mph in less than 100 feet apart from one another. You can feel comfortable reaching out to him for any advice or help.

Clear, Approachable & Helpful.
Helpful, efficient & trustworthy. Paul was very clear with me about the whole situation and went above and beyond my expectations. He made the situation feel as stress free as possible.

Before i could even tell paul what my problem was it seemed like he already It only took him a matter of days to rectify my traffic tickets. I had moved to Florida and could not appear in court for the violations. Paul handled every minute detail for me (with no flaws!) his speedy resolve of my case made me a very , very, happy client!
