At Feifer & Greenberg, we offer hundreds of free consultations every week to drivers who have been issued traffic tickets in New York. This provides an opportunity for someone who has been charged with a traffic violation or driving related misdemeanor to have their questions answered, find out what the potential penalties are, what might be done to avoid those penalties, what the chances of success are and how our firm may be able to help.
We make it a point to be very straight forward during these consultations. We only want people to hire us who can benefit from our services. If someone is unlikely to benefit from our services or we are otherwise not a good fit, we want to make sure they know it.
Once someone does decide to hire us, we get started right away. We’ll walk you through a quick initial intake process and confirm we have all your contact and case information. Depending on the location and type of case, sometimes we can retrieve much of it online and sometimes we’ll need you to forward a copy of case paperwork or provide us with a few details over the phone.
After confirming we have the basic information to get started, we’ll forward our introductory paperwork put together for your case. While this paperwork can differ slightly depending on the location and type of case, we will include a simple agreement setting forth what our responsibilities are as your attorney and an authorization to let the court know we are permitted to proceed on your behalf.
Everything is easily set up over phone or email or fax. Clients rarely need to come to our office unless they want to.
With all the initial activity out of the way, our attention is turned toward preparing for court. We make sure not guilty pleas have been entered, hearing dates are set and we’re on file as the attorney of record in courts and cases where this is appropriate. We will confirm we have any paperwork or other information (evidence in certain cases) we need prior to the court date.
Eventually, your court date will come. What we do in court and how we go about this depends somewhat on which type of court your case is in. Read more about the different types of New York traffic courts.
After a court date or other significant deadline or change in status to a case, we’ll touch base to let you know what is going on. We’ll also be in touch during the life of a case if we need to discuss or review anything with you. When a case is finished, we provide results and any further instructions if necessary and remain available to answer any questions you may have.
We understand that legal matters inherently cause a certain amount of stress, but our goal is to handle the entire case on behalf of a client in a manner that is as simple and as stress-free as possible. If you’ve been issued a traffic ticket in New York, call us today at (888) 842-5384 (888-Tickethelp) or contact us online for a free, no-obligation consultation.

We have organized a statewide network of attorneys. In our network are both attorneys who work for Feifer & Greenberg and attorneys who work for other firms that regularly provide of-counsel representation to our clients. This statewide network allows us to match clients in a particular county or court with local attorneys who regularly appear on similar matters in the same county or court. It enables us to help clients anywhere in New York State and in our opinion provide particularly effective and affordable representation for our clients. Local attorneys can draw on their particular local experiences and, with travel time and expense removed from the equation, help us keep our legal fees low.
We can only guarantee that we will provide the best possible client service and legal representation. We can’t guarantee results. These are legal proceedings and we can’t promise you that every case will end in our favor. We will always honestly assess your case (both good and bad) and set realistic expectations during your consultation. We’ll discuss our goals and objectives but no attorney can ever guarantee how a case will conclude.
We recommend fighting almost all tickets. Even if the current NY traffic tickets aren’t particularly harmful, you have an incentive to keep your record clean for the future. Convictions quickly lead to surcharges, insurance increases and other complications. You should strongly consider any decision to pay a ticket without fighting.
Our lawyers are experienced, prepared attorneys who understand the nuances of fighting traffic tickets. Experience, preparation and good decision making help us to help our clients avoid points, surcharges, insurance increases and the other negatives that can easily result from a traffic ticket.
