What to Expect in When Fighting a Speeding Ticket in Scarsdale Village Court
In general, if you are fighting a traffic ticket in Scarsdale Village Court, you can expect a significant delay before you see a judge. Sometimes, you can wait three hours or more before your case is adjudicated. This may result in you missing work, school, or other valuable appointments. The reason for the delay is that the court routinely adjudicates criminal cases before the speeding ticket and traffic matters.
If you retain our law firm for a non-misdemeanor traffic ticket, you can bypass this long and tedious wait. When you retain this firm and provide us with written authorization to appear on your behalf, you will not be required to appear in court. In other words, we can appear on your behalf saving you valuable time.
