Traffic Violation Attorney
Serving Clients With Traffic Violations in Yonkers, Southeast, Bedford, Kent, Greenburgh, New Rochelle, Harrison and Throughout New York
Traffic tickets have consequences. Just paying for the ticket isn't necessarily an end to it. Depending on the severity of the violation and your previous driving record, you may have points put on your driving record by the DMV. You could also be facing a substantial increase in your auto insurance or a license suspension or revocation. Two or three violations on your record can add up to enough points where you may lose your license. In some instances, you could lose your license for one very serious violation alone. And, though it is rare, a court may impose jail time for some serious traffic violation convictions. That is why it is so important to seek the services of a
traffic violation defense lawyer with years of experience to defend you, even if you are a first-time offender.
The Law Office of Aaron G. Baily has successfully defended hundreds of drivers against traffic violations in courts throughout the New York City metro area and the Hudson Valley. This includes hundreds of drivers charged with traffic violations in the busiest courts such as Yonkers City Court and Greenburgh Town Court.

Traffic Violation Consequences
When most people think about traffic violations, they only consider the money they will lose when they pay the ticket. There are a number of other factors that should be taken into account, including the points that may be assessed on one's driving record. If you accumulate a certain number of demerit points in a given time period, you may lose your driver's license. The stakes are even higher for commercial drivers, whose livelihood may be on the line as a result of a ticket or other offense. Those who are convicted of traffic violations often find their insurance rates are raised by a substantial amount. Depending on your driving record, your premiums could be increased by up to fifty per cent. Thus, even one conviction could cost you thousands of dollars more per year in auto insurance premiums which can continue for three more years after you've settled the ticket.
A driver may also face jail time for certain traffic offenses in the Yonkers area. DWI and hit and run (leaving the scene of an accident), for example, are criminal offenses. This means that a driver who is found guilty of these may face imprisonment, not to mention the burden of having a criminal conviction on his or her record for life.
Engaging a Traffic Violation Defense Lawyer
Just because you've been issued a ticket doesn't necessarily mean that you're guilty or that you should give up and accept the consequences. You can plead not guilty and present your case in court. Having a competent traffic violation defense lawyer by your side can be a great advantage when facing police officers in court who have been there many times before and have familiarity with the system. With good preparation, an effective and persuasive presentation of your case can be put before the court which may help you avoid a conviction.
