What to Expect in Yorktown Heights Traffic Court

What to Expect in Yorktown Heights Traffic Court

Retaining an attorney can make all the difference. We have more than 20 years of legal experience fighting for you.

How do I find the Yorktown Heights Town Court?

The court is located at 2295 Crompound Road in Yorktown Heights in New York.  It is located next to the police department and across the street from a church.  It is approximately ¾ of a mile away from the heart of downtown.

The court has ample parking in front of the building.  There are approximately 30 spots for visitors to park.  On court days, the parking lot can be over crowded so it is advisable that you arrive early.

I’m afraid of going to court, can I retain your law firm?

Yes, you can retain our firm.  Retaining a law firm that knows what to expect in court can give you a big advantage. At our firm, we have years of experience fighting traffic tickets.  Our experience can help you save time, money, and points on your license.  Give us a call at 914-723-7900 and ask how our Yorktown speeding ticket lawyers of New York can help.  We have represented hundreds of drivers on moving violations ranging from speeding tickets to reckless driving. We excel at getting tickets either dismissed or reduced.  

Our team of traffic and criminal defense lawyers is lead by former prosecutor Joseph P. Villanueva.  As a former prosecutor, he can help in analyzing critical issues in your case and work to give you the best defense possible.

Who prosecutes my case?

Depending on who issued your ticket, your case will either be prosecuted by the local police or local prosecutor.  Tickets that were issued by the Yorktown Police are handled by the officer that issued the summons.  Tickets that were issued by the State Police are handled by the town attorney.

Can I call the police department or prosecutor to avoid coming to court?

In general, the answer is no.  Both the police department and prosecutors office are inundated with matters and prefer to discuss potential dispositions in court.

Is there a dress code for court?

The court does not have a formal dress code.  However, you should always dress in a respectful manner.  Most courts throughout New York require litigants to wear long pants and shoes.  

What happens when I show up on my court date?

When you enter the courthouse, you will be greeted by a court officer.  The officer will ask you to walk through a metal detector and turn off all electronic devices.  Your attendance will be noted and you will be instructed to have a seat in the court.

What are the benefits of retaining your firm?

Going to court can be a time consuming and stressful proposition for many motorists.  Our attorneys have been appearing in Orange County Traffic Courts for years and can assist in alleviating your stress and help reduce the points levied against your license.  By reducing your ticket, we can help save you on rising insurance costs.

We are familiar with the “ins and outs” of the court. Our attorneys have excelled at getting speeding tickets, suspended licenses cases, and other matters either dismissed or reduced.  Under most normal circumstances, our client’s never appear in court on traffic infractions.  This will saves them valuable time and money.

What are some things I should bring to court?

It is helpful to bring your court notice and a copy of your ticket.  This will help the court easily track down your case and help expedite the process.  It is also helpful to bring a copy of your driving record.  Your driving record can be obtained at your local Department of Motor Vehicles.  If you resolve your matter, should know exactly how it will affect your privilege to drive.  If the court assesses a fine, you should be prepared to pay the fine on the day you go to court.
