Feifer & Greenberg LLP will be offering discounted legal services to qualified United States military Veterans fighting potentially costly and time consuming New York City traffic violations.
The state of New York is home to more than 900,000 United States military Veterans represented by a varied community of individuals from different backgrounds and of different ages. Veterans aged 65 to 69 comprise 15 percent of the state veteran population, and a large percentage of that group are Vietnam Vets.
They are different people involved in different conflicts at different times in different parts of the world, yet they all have something in common: They all made personal sacrifices for the country. Unfortunately, their service doesn’t prevent them from falling victim to the enforcement of local traffic laws that can sometimes seem more about revenue generation than safety.
There are programs set up to assist Veterans trying to buy a home, and programs set up to offer Vets free access to state parks or assistance with mental or physical health, etc. While our program deals with an issue often viewed as relatively minor compared to some of life’s bigger challenges, a traffic violation or driver license issue can be a huge deal. It can affect a person’s ability to work or to care for family. A traffic citation can easily snowball from a routine car stop to a big problem and large expense.
“The premise is simple,” attorney Scott Feifer says. He explains that they’ve been helping friends and family for years with violations ranging from a minor nuisance for some to a major problem for others. “My partner and I decided that we could easily expand our family and friends ‘discounts’ to include a group we wanted to offer services to, and we quickly honed in on Veterans.”
The “Service No Summons” program entitles all Veterans to discounts on typical NYC traffic law matters and benefits in conjunction with these matters such as free record checks and analysis or investigation of open suspensions. While each individual situation may differ regarding severity of the charges, the particular court in question and the particular driving record at hand, Feifer & Greenberg will do what it can to offer Veterans the entirety of their services in NYC at a significant discount.
“We’re good at what we do and we’ll do our best to help a lot of Veterans fight to avoid points, insurance increases and other losses incurred as a result of routine traffic violation charges,” Feifer says.
If you are a Veteran and need assistance with a vehicle and traffic law matter in NYC or elsewhere in New York, please fill out the contact form and we’ll reach out to you shortly to discuss your case.

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.
