Syracuse Traffic Violations Lawyer

A traffic violation can seriously damage your driving record and your insurance rates. It can also place you in a position to be penalized more severely the next time.

If you have received a traffic ticket while driving in New York, whether as a resident, over-the-road driver or tourist, we at Elisabeth A. Barker, Attorney at Law, welcome the opportunity to explain how we can help you pursue the most favorable outcome in your traffic ticket defense. Contact our Syracuse traffic violations attorney today to start protecting your record and license.

We Represent Individuals Facing All Traffic Violations

You should reach out to an experienced criminal defense lawyer if you are charged with one of the following:

  • Speeding
  • Reckless driving
  • Careless driving
  • Driving with a suspended license (DWS)
  • Drunk driving (DWI/DUI)
  • Moving violations such as a failure to stop, failure to yield, or for making an illegal lane change

Local Representation for Out-of-State Clients

Without the assistance of an attorney, you might have to return to New York “just for a traffic ticket.” Most traffic tickets can be handled by mail, including tickets that you contest for any reason. Whether we need to go to court for you or can conduct your defense by mail, we are confident in our ability to get a better outcome for you than is the case with a traffic offense to which you plead guilty because you don’t have time to fight or appear in court. You should not plead guilty to a ticket just because it is inconvenient for you to return to New York.

We are often successful in obtaining the following positive results:

  • Ticket thrown out based on technicalities
  • Reduced charges

While we cannot guarantee that our past successful results mean we will also win in your case, you can rest assured that the defense of your traffic citation rests in the hands of an experienced New York lawyer.

Digging Deeper to Resolve More Complex Traffic Violations

Sometimes what looks like a simple traffic ticket is more complex. We are prepared to address any complexity on your behalf. For example, if you received a traffic ticket for driving without a license, it may be possible for us to challenge the original driver’s license suspension and have the traffic violation resolved altogether that way. If your license was suspended for failure to pay child support, we can work with you and the Child Support Bureau to get your license reinstated.
