YEARS OF EXPERIENCE

TRAFFIC VIOLATIONS

A traffic ticket is no laughing matter.  Penalties could include fines, increased insurance rates, and points on your license, which could lead to its suspension or revocation. Missing your court date could result in a suspended license and even a warrant for your arrest in some cases.  In addition to the financial penalties,  you will have to spend hours in traffic court away from your job and family waiting to have your case heard. The long term financial and opportunity costs of a traffic ticket make it imperative that you hire an attorney to obtain the best disposition possible.  The Law Office of Peter H. Mayer IV PLLC has obtained point reductions on hundreds of traffic matters in Nassau and Suffolk counties, and has also won traffic cases at trial.  Time is of the essence in these matters, so call us as soon as possible.
