Lysander Justice Court
P O Box 1321
8220 Loop Road
Baldwinsville, NY 13027
The Justice Court hours are Monday through Friday from 9:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. except for holidays. Court is in session on every Tuesday at 7:00 p.m. and every Wednesday at 7:30 p.m. Traffic fines may be paid online or by cash, certified check, credit card, money order.
Dress Code: While there is no official dress code, it is important that you dress neatly and always conduct yourself in a respectful manner with the court. Many judges frown upon litigants wearing shorts, open toe sandals, and other similar items.
Sign-in: Even though you may have met with the officer in court and discussed your matter, it is important to check-in with the court clerk in the front of the courtroom. Failure to advise the clerk that you are in court may result in your case not being called.
Security: Immediately prior to entering the court, you will be asked to walk through a magnetometer and asked to turn off all electronic devices. The court is secured by special court attendants. These officers help facilitate the court process and one of their key function is to note attendees who arrive to court. Your failure to check in with one of the officers may result in your case not being called.How Many Points am I Facing?
A conviction to a moving violation will have varying degrees for which points can be assessed on a license. For example, cell phone violations carry a 5 point penalty. Meanwhile, a speeding conviction can vary from 3 points to 11 points depending on the severity of the charge.

Tickets often carry a potential to cost hundreds in fines, penalties, hassle, and insurance increases. Currently, a guilty plea to a 86/55 mph could cost driver close to $700.00 in fines, an additional $450.00 in penalties, and insurance increases. Given the right additional set of facts and circumstances, there is potential to receive the more serious penalties of a suspended license and being sent to jail.
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.How Can an Attorney Help Me?
