many tickets could cost you your income. In addition to fines,
points are usually accrued on your driving record. After accumulating enough
points, you may face a
driver's license suspension. We can fight to defend you!

DWI Defense & DMV Matters
More serious traffic violations, such as
DWI / DUI, may result in possible imprisonment or community service, on top of fines
and license suspension. In the face of a drunk driving charge or allegation,
it is important to choose an attorney that can effectively assert your
rights throughout all court proceedings. We can intervene early in the
process to negotiate with the prosecution to have your charges lessened
or even dismissed. It is also possible for us to seek alternative sentencing.
In addition to representing your interests in criminal court, we can offer
experienced counsel for
DMV matters, such as your administrative license suspension hearing. The DMV hearing
is your chance to challenge the suspension of your driver's license,
which makes it crucial to have a knowledgeable attorney on your side when
going into this matter.

How do I deal with my insurance if I've received a ticket?
After being issued a traffic ticket, it is not uncommon for your insurance
company to increase your premiums. Upon review and renewal, your policy
may change even if you've received only one speeding ticket or were
involved in only one
auto accident. In no time at all, the
rates on your insurance policy could be sent through the roof. If you've received multiple tickets in a short amount of time, you
could be at risk of having your insurance cancelled altogether. Avoiding
these types of negative consequences is possible, however, especially
if you have the right attorney on your side.
With the successful litigation of literally thousands of traffic summonses
throughout New York and its surrounding areas, Gannes & Musico, LLP
is the firm to turn to for legal help when you are looking to avoid high

of being issued a
bench warrant for your arrest. Together, our team's experience concerning all matters
of traffic and DWI / DUI law make for a winning combination of success
that has been seen in traffic, criminal, civil and administrative hearings

What is the booting policy in New York City?
In the past, when a vehicle was parked where it should not be, the authorities
could tow the vehicle. A new policy that began on June 25, 2012 is "booting."
This involves putting a device on one of the wheels of the car, making
it impossible to move the vehicle. In order to get the "boot"
removed, a fine will have to be paid. These boots are not only given to
those who have parked illegally, but also to those who have failed to
pay past traffic tickets.
No matter whether you had a traffic ticket for speeding, running a red
light, or committed a
carpool lane violation,
anyone who has accumulated over $350 in fines could be subject to booting. If you returned to your vehicle to find it fitted with a boot, you will
need to figure out your situation within two days.
