Melinda Zou Wins TicketHelp Safe Driver Scholarship

Feifer & Greenberg, LLC is proud to announce that Melinda Zou has been awarded the 2020 Safe Driver Scholarship, worth $1,000.

Melinda is a graduating senior headed to UC Berkeley next fall (or to UC Berkeley’s Zoom University online). Her family member’s ill-fate encounter with a distracted driver has been a memory she will never forget. Since then, she has used her platform to advocate for change. During high school, she was president of numerous student clubs including Junior State of America and Harvard Model Congress. The underlying message of all her activities emphasized student leadership and the power of students to change their communities for the better. Whether spreading awareness through campaigns aimed to decrease the number of distracted drivers on our roads, or supporting legislation that targets distracted driving, Melinda has been fortunate to have the chance to make a difference. She recognizes the obscenely large number of lives that are taken away from distracted driving each year, and lives every day thankful, just for being alive. She hopes to use her blessings of simply being alive to help in decreasing the amount of accidents that happen due to distracted driving.

Melinda hopes to continue to grow as a person, and recognizes that there is so much more to learn and discover about herself and the world. She is excited for the opportunities ahead, and is grateful for the TicketHelp Safe Driver Scholarship from  Feifer & Greenberg LLP.  Ever since sophomore year, she has worked at a fast-food restaurant to help pay for high school fees. While she has recently lost her job due to COVID, the support from Feifer & Greenberg LLP will aid her greatly in UC Berkeley where she will study Political Science. Shaped from her personal experiences, Melinda hopes that her studies will lead to a career in public policy where she can continue to make a difference. She cannot thank Feifer and Greenberg enough for giving her this opportunity to pursue her studies in college.

Your office is in NYC. How do you handle cases statewide?

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.

Do you guarantee results?
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.
Should I just pay my ticket or should I fight?

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.

How can our traffic ticket lawyers help you?

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.
