If you have been charged with a traffic offense in New York, you may think it's easier to just pay the ticket than to fight it. In fact, not fighting a traffic ticket can cost you a lot more in the long run than hiring an experienced traffic ticket defense lawyer. Pleading no contest to a moving violation in New York can result in steep fines, hidden assessment fees, skyrocketing insurance rates and even the loss of your driver's license.
At the Law Office of Alan L. Joseph, I have extensive experience defending clients against traffic offenses. With more than 30 years of experience, I am well versed in the traffic defense strategies that get results.

New York Driver Responsibility Assessment Fee
If you incur six points on your driver's license within an 18-month period, New York will charge you an assessment fee of $100 per year for three years, and $25 per year for every point above six. That's a total of $300 plus $75 dollars for every point above six. This surcharge applies to drivers from New York as well as out of state.
I understand how a simple traffic ticket can wind up costing thousands of dollars in the long run. The only way you can avoid this financial burden is to challenge it. If you choose to fight your traffic ticket, I am here to offer the legal guidance and advocacy you need.
