Westchester Attorney Defends Cell Phone Ticket & Avoids License Suspension
One of the issues that our traffic ticket defense lawyers are often asked to address is when a client receives a Notice of Suspension from the New York Department of Motor Vehicles. Many times, the client has done everything that they were supposed to do by filling in the "Not Guilty" section of the ticket, requesting a supporting deposition and mailing the ticket back to the issuing court. Unfortunately, the court system is not perfect and for whatever reason the client's "Not Guilty" plea is not entered with the court and they are never sent a notice to appear in court.
Failing to appear and/or answer a traffic ticket in Westchester County, NY will result in the local court notifying the DMV of your non-appearance and you will be issued a Notice of Suspension. The Notice of Suspension will be mailed to your home and will advise you of why you are going to be suspended, the underlying violation that you are charged with, the court where the violation is pending and the date on which your driver's license will be suspended. Ignoring the Notice of Suspension will result in your driving privileges being suspended in New York and you will be required to pay additional fees in order to lift the suspension.

White Plains Client avoids 5 point Cell Phone ticket and Suspension Prevented
One of our recent successes involved a client who had received a cell phone ticket issued by a White Plains police officer. The client responded to the ticket as instructed, however, she never received a notice to appear in the White Plains City Court. Her failure to answer the summons was reported to the DMV and she was issued a suspension notice.
Fortunately, the client contacted the traffic lawyers of Proto, Sachs & Brown, LLP. The first action was to contact the White Plains City Court and have the matter calendared before one of the judges. Instead of having the matter proceed to a trial, our firm successfully negotiated a much reduced plea deal. Instead of a five point cell phone violation, the client left the court with zero points on her license and paid a minimal fine. More importantly, since we were able to quickly calendar and resolve the ticket, the client avoided the license suspension and the additional fees from the DMV.
