Unlike many other defense attorneys I am NOT a former Assistant District Attorney nor a former police officer. I don't judge our clients, I just defend them.  In fact, I came to the practice of law as a second career. Prior to becoming an attorney I spent 20 years as a business executive, eventually running a large subsidiary of a Fortune 500 company. While those years in private business were challenging and rewarding, there came time that I wanted to do something different and more directly related to assisting other people. So, I left the business world, went to law school, passed the New York State bar exam and became a practicing attorney. You can read my full bio here and meet our staff here.

New York State DWI Law

DWI (DUI) in New York
For most of the length of the Taconic Parkway traffic law enforcment is handled by units of the NYS police out of "Troop K' in Millbrook, NY.  State police troopers use both radar and laser speed detection systems and because of the winding, undulating nature of the road there are many places where the police cannot be seen or detected before its too late to avoid a ticket. 
 
Your chance of being given a speeding ticket on the Taconic is higher than on any other highway in NYS. Learn more about Taconic Traffic Enforcement in each county, click here.
Traffic cases from tickets along the Taconic are handled by more than a dozen different local courts.  Prosecution of the tickes is done by town prosecutors in every county except Columbia County where traffic prosecutions are done by the District Attorney's Office.
 
Every court and prosecutor has different standards regarding "plea bargaining" for a reduction in the charges.  Almost any ticket can be reduced.  How, much of a reduction is possible depends on the charge, your driving record and what court has the case. For detailed info on each court, click here.

A simple speeding ticket shouldn't cause a great deal of angst.  But, given the impact it can have on your pocketbook, driver's license and auto insurance its worth taking the time to fully understand what your options are and how a qualified attorney can help you minimize the impact of a ticket.

 

On the Taconic speeds of more than 10-12 mph over the speed limit will routinely result in a police stop and speeding ticket.  Enforcement is intense in E. Fishkill, LaGrange, Stanford, Milan, Ghent, Claverack andChatham. To learn more about NYS traffic law, click here.
