In New York, a traffic ticket can have severe consequences that exceed just a fine. If your livelihood is centered on driving a taxi or a truck, getting too 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 your driving privileges and your reputation!
If you have you received a traffic ticket, contact Gannes & Musico, LLP for help! We will put your best interests first and will personalize your legal counsel to meet your individual needs.
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 such as treatment or rehabilitation to avoid any type of imprisonment.
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 due to an allegedly failed or refused breath or blood test, which makes it crucial to have a knowledgeable attorney on your side when going into this matter.
About Our New York City Traffic Ticket Law Firm
Our experienced team of New York traffic ticket lawyers is committed to providing clients with the knowledgeable counsel and hard-hitting defense they need in the face of citations for moving violations of every nature. These violations may include:
In New York City, a speeding ticket could add as many as eight points to your driving record and reckless driving is an additional five points. Even non-speeding tickets can accumulate points on your driving record – ones that you don't want! For example, following too closely behind another vehicle ("tailgating") could land you a ticket and four points added to your driving record, while
failing to yield to the right-of-way is another three points.
Accumulating 11 or more points within an 18-month period will result in a suspended license. Therefore, it is crucial that you immediately take legal action after receiving a ticket of any degree, as this will be the best way of ensuring that you are not fined, suspended or otherwise penalized for the traffic offense(s) for which you were ticketed.
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 then increase your premiums based on your driving record. 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 insurance rates, additional points on your driving record, and the possibly 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 of every nature.

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.
