Why Hire a Traffic Lawyer to Fight Your Traffic Ticket?

Because if you don't "fight" your ticket, you will have a conviction and all the consequences that come with it. It is best to always minimize the impact every ticket

Filling out "Section A - Plea of Guilty" and mailing your ticket to the court is a conviction and makes you subject to all the points and fines allowed by law.  Your insurance company may increase your rates or even drop coverage. The best policy, even if it is your first ticket, is to contest the charge to minimize the impact on your record. 

For example, let's say your speeding ticket alleges that you drove 74 mph in a 55 mph zone.  If you plead guilty, the DMV will add 4 points to your driving record and the court will impose a fine $90-$300 and a surcharge of $93. A reduction to the no-point violation of Stopping, standing, or parking outside of business or residence district would mean a fine of $0-$150 and $25 surcharge.  A reduction to the no-point Equipment violation of, for example, a noisy muffler or broken light would mean a fine of between $0-$150 and a $55 surcharge. Learn more about points and fines.

For most people, the points are the primary concern and rightly so because you will be paying any increased insurance premiums long after you have forgotten about the fine. Moreover, the New York DMV will impose a Driver Responsibility Assessment on all NY drivers that accumulate 6 or more points in any 18 month period. For 6 points, the assessment is $100 per year for 3 years and for every point over 6, there is an additional charge of $25 per point.

Better than I hoped for

I hired Mr. Habib to represent me in my recent DWI case on the recommendation of a friend. He handled my case professionally and with great knowledge of the process. I consider his experience as a former assistant DA to be one of his best assets. Knowing the other side of the system as well as he does allows him to apply a strong and efficient strategy to achieve the best possible outcome for there defendant, and quickly. Mr. Habib was able to get my criminal charge reduced to a violation, other tickets were dropped, and even got the fine reduced by several hundred dollars, all in just two court dates. I feel very fortunate to have received the outcome I did, and Mr. Habib was 100% responsible for that.

Professional, Knowledgeable, Dependable, Honest, and Hard-Working...

...These are the words I use to describe Mr. Ralph Habib. If you are ever charged with a DWI, or any other criminal charge for that matter, Ralph is lawyer you NEED to have representing you!

I was charged with a serious DWI offense, at a very bad time in Central New York considering other high profile DWI cases being publicly followed/broadcast. A friend of mine recommended Ralph, and I knew from the first time we spoke that Ralph was the lawyer I wanted fighting for me and representing me in Court. Even though the cards were stacked against us, Ralph listened to my side of the story and understood that I am not a criminal, but that I had made a poor decision. He assured me from the very beginning that he would work tirelessly to get the best possible outcome, and he answered all of my questions along the way. Due to his past work as an Assistant DA in Onondaga County, Ralph has the knowledge and connections needed in this type of case. This charge could have easily ruined me as a person, as well as the career I have worked so hard towards, but because Ralph believed in me and fought for me (at all hours of the day/night I might add), he was able to get my charges greatly reduced. I was able to keep my driver's license, which essentially saved my career and my future.

I am forever grateful to Ralph for all he has done for me! I will never be able to fully repay him for the effort he put into this case. And to anyone reading this that is in a similar situation to the one I was in, please know I hope your case gets a favorable outcome as well...if you have Ralph Habib standing next to you, there is no doubt in my mind you will be fine!

Google+ Review

I contacted Azria & Bruffett to handle my traffic ticket after an accident in upstate New York. I found them via a random Google search and appreciated the clarity of the information presented on their website and in initial communications. Throughout the entire process they were extremely clear and helpful. My case got a little complicated for random reasons, and they went beyond their initial scope to pursue the case on my behalf. I really appreciate their work.

Great Attorney, excellent service provided!

Driving back from Canada I received a large speeding ticket in NY. I thought this time instead of the PA making a mockery of me and traveling back up to NY I'd enlist the help of an attorney. Azira & Bruffett were the first firm that populated and the only one I needed. His staff was great, very communicative and friendly, David, was very easy to work with. Very knowledgeable and explained everything perfectly to me. I hope i never need another attorney in NY again, but if I do, David Bruffett will be the first I contact.
