Ellicott Town Justice Court
215 South Work Street
Falconer, NY 14733
Security: Please remember that the court is a secure place, as such you will be asked to walk through a magnetometer upon your arrival. It is advised that all electronics be turned off prior to entering the court.
Dress Code: While there is no official dress code, we highly suggest all litigants dress in a neat and respectable manner. Many times judges frown on individuals who come to court in shorts, open-toed sandals or other similar items.
Arrival: We recommend you go to court earlier than the time provided to you by the court. It is always better to go earlier than later. Arriving late to your court appearance could result in your case being called prior to your arrival. You do not want to miss your case.
Court Clerk: The court clerk helps the Judge with his/her daily duties. Many times the court clerk will collect fine monies, send letters to litigants and help answer day-to-day questions. If you have any questions, the court clerk will be able to assist you.How Many Points Will I Get?
A speeding violation ranges from 3-11 points, depending on your speed. For further information please look at the following chart.
01 to 10 mph over the limit
11 to 20
21 to 30

More than 40
Once a driver accumulates 11 or more points on their driving record, their privilege to drive will be suspended.

A conviction to a violation with points does not convert into an automatic insurance increase. There are many factors that can be taken into consideration including but not limited the driver’s age, type of vehicle driving, and accident history.
Note, insurance costs can vary for two very similar situated drivers. A speeding conviction is not the only factor taken under consideration by insurance companies. They will also examine things such as a driver’s age, type of car driven, and car accident history.About Our Firm
