Zev Goldstein was the Traffic Court Prosecutor for the City of Albany for 5 years. Being that the NYS DMV is seated in Albany, Mr Goldstein was able to pick up the ins and outs of traffic ticket law on the state level.
With the motto of "zero points", Zev Goldstein's goal is to protect his client's driving history from violation points which are added to a driver's license at the time of conviction.
Being pulled over by a cop does not mean you are convicted, it means you are accused of a violation.
Under the constitution you are not obligated to convict yourself! Instead you have the right to make sure that the prosecution does everything properly convicts you beyond a reasonable doubt, which can be very difficult for the prosecution. By hiring an experienced attorney you may be able to save your license,your money, and your good name.
Concentrating in traffic tickets, Zev Goldstein Esq makes fighting traffic tickets, not only affordable, but a good choice tactically.
Although not all tickets can or should be fought, and it does not always make sense to hire a attorney to handle a ticket, our practice of practice providing a free consultation allows you to decide if your best option is hiring an attorney, and how much you could save in time money and annoyance.
With 28 years of practicing traffic law throughout New York State, Mr Goldstein is knowledgeable of the common practices in the many small courts across the State.
Killer smile attitude.
Negotiating a deal requires a working relationship will all parties involved. Having built up relationships across the State of New York for many years, many court clerks, prosecutors and judges know Zev, and like him too.
Most attorneys who fight traffic tickets are attorneys who practice in other areas of law. These attorneys think: it's just a traffic ticket, there is nothing to it. They may know the basics of traffic law, and can be of some help, it varies.
However attorneys who concentrate in traffic law defense study and know the fatal defects which can disqualify a ticket, as well as which laws of criminal defense which work and don't work with traffic tickets.
Other attorneys may go to the court just for one client, and so they might charge travel fees, hourly fees, and research fees. In short, the occasional traffic attorney could cost you more, with less expertise.
Retaining the right attorney can make the difference between pleading guilty to most of the violation, or driving away with the case dismissed.
