Criminal Law

Being Charged With a Crime

You could be charged with a crime. Sometimes a traffic ticket isn’t just about a fine. Charges, like the ones listed below, could lead to hefty fines, points on your license, probation and even jail time!

At Jeffrey Ziff and Associates, P.C. we have two experienced former prosecutors who know the ins and outs of the criminal justice system. We’ve handled both felonies and misdemeanors. Let us be at your side for the whole process up to and including a trial if necessary.

Do you need help?

We have the Answers.

How can I avoid going to court?

In most cases traffic cases, our attorneys can represent you without your presence.

If the Police Officer doesn’t show up does that automatically dismiss my case?

No, just like you the officer has a chance to reschedule the date. The judge may dismiss your case based on the charge, your record and the history of the summons.

The officer spelled my name wrong, does that automatically dismiss my case?

Not necessarily. It helps your case that the officer made an error but this does not necessarily dismiss your ticket.

If I have an out-of-state license, should I just pay the ticket and be done with it?

No. In some instances points transfer from state to state. Also, if you obtain a summons in New York, you just began a New York record.

Can you reduce the points on tickets?

In the 5 boroughs of NYC there is no plea bargaining, meaning we cannot reduce the points and you pay a higher fine. In some cases a speeding ticket can be reduced, but not all. However, outside the five boroughs and in New Jersey, there is plea bargaining.

If I don’t receive a letter from the DMV, the ticket is gone and I have nothing to worry about.

Don’t just leave it alone! You’re license could get suspended and if you are stopped driving with a suspended license you may spend sometime in handcuffs and criminal court.

Cell phone and seatbelt violations have no points, so I probably shouldn’t bother fighting them, right?

FALSE! Your insurance rates can go up for cell phone and seatbelt convictions. If you just pay these summonses off you may be considered a persistent violator and a judge has the right to suspend your driving privileges.

Shouldn’t I take the Defensive Drive Class after I’m guilty?

No, The class is valid for 18 months BACKWARDS. So if you took the class January 1, 2010 the class would deduct 4 points from your record for any tickets received between 7/1/08 and 1/1/2010. If you are found not guilty, it will help your insurance rates.

Should I just plead guilty to my insurance ticket to get rid of my headache?

DO NOT PLEAD GUILTY TO AN INSURANCE TICKET! Your license will be revoked for one year and you will pay a $750 civil penalty on top of a fine. Hire help before it’s too late.

I heard from my friend that the points on your license expire after 18 months, so shouldn’t I just keep rescheduling my case and I’ll be fine?

That’s not completely true. If you get another ticket within the 18 month period after your initial ticket, then the points stay on your license until 18 months after your latest ticket and so on.
