Before You Plead Guilty, You Should Know:

Pleading guilty to a traffic ticket can have many unintended consequences. Some of these unintended consequences can result in:

  1. losing your privilege to drive because you are assessed too many points,
  2. losing your job because you are dependent on driving for your livelihood,
  3. paying hundreds of dollars in fines and surcharges,
  4. paying hundreds of dollars in insurance increases, and
  5. incarceration.

These are only a few potential consequences that you could be facing if you simply plead guilty without consulting Joseph P. Villanueva, Attorneys At Law.

New York City Traffic Tickets

Top New York Lawyers 2011

Our Firm represents clients for traffic tickets received in any of the New York City boroughs within the Traffic Violations Bureau.

Our Firm also represents clients in New York City Criminal Court and handles traffic misdemeanor tickets for offenses such as Reckless Driving, Aggravated Unlicensed Operation and Driving While Intoxicated.

Our Firm represents clients in entering their plea properly to avoid an admission of guilt or failure to answer fines and suspension. Tickets must be returned with a plea within fifteen (15) days to avoid additional fines and suspension of the driver's license. Failure to answer a traffic ticket can result in a monetary bond being set for each ticket entering a late not guilty plea, which is only returned if found not guilty or the charges are dropped.

Our Firm has experience with the New York City Traffic Violations Bureau system. No plea bargaining is available for New York City Traffic Tickets, so not guilty pleas must go to trial. Our Firm represents clients at Traffic Violations Bureau hearings, questioning the police officer who issued the ticket, introducing evidence and ensuring compliance with evidence rules and application of the standard of proof of "clear and convincing evidence." As conviction rates are high in the Traffic Violations Bureau, our firm can also represent clients on the appeal of a guilty verdict.
