If you have been pulled over and given a ticket for using a cell phone while driving, you will want to make sure you have a good defense attorney to work your case. We specialize as cell phone ticket attorneys, and would be happy to review your case and let you know what we think. In many cases, it is possible to have the ticket dismissed so you don’t have to pay a fine or face any other penalties.
Over the past several years, there have been many new laws put in place regarding the use of cell phones or other mobile devices while driving. Whether you were ticketed for texting, making a phone call, talking without a hands free device, checking social media or email, or anything else, you could be facing a big fine.
Don’t just Pay the Ticket
One of the biggest mistakes people make when they get this type of ticket is that they just go in and pay the ticket without even realizing that they could fight it. Fighting any type of motor vehicle ticket is something everyone has a right to do. The process is fairly simple, and when you have a cell phone ticket lawyer working with you, the chances are quite good that you will win the case. Of course, we can’t guarantee any outcome because the results will depend largely on the judge or magistrate that hears the case.
When you have a good attorney, however, you have a much better chance at getting the outcome that you desire. Whether you’re hoping to have the ticket completely thrown out, or you just want to minimize the fine and any points on your license, we will work hard on your behalf. With that in mind, you should always fight any type of cell phone related ticket. To do this, you will have to go to the courthouse that oversees the area where your ticket was actually issued. So, if you got a ticket in NYC, you would go to a New York City courthouse. If it were in Long Island, that is where you would go.
Wherever your case is, we will have an experienced attorney there to help you along the way. We work with all the courthouses in Suffolk County and Nassau County, so no matter where this occurred, we’ll be there for you.
