Being pulled over by a cop does not mean you are convicted, it means you are charged.

Negotiating a deal requires a working relationship will all parties involved. Having built up relationships across the state of NY for many years, most court clerks, prosecutors and judges know Zev, and like him too.
Most attorneys who fight traffic tickets are attorneys who specialize in other areas of law, such as criminal defense or other areas. Most attorneys think, it's just a traffic ticket, there is nothing to it. They know the basics of traffic law, and can be of some help.
However attorneys who specialize in traffic law study and know fatal defects which disqualify a ticket, as well as which laws of criminal defense don't work with traffic tickets.
Other attorneys will have to go to the court just for one clients, and so they charge travel fees, hourly fees, and research fees. In short, a non specialist could cost you more, with less expertise.
Retaining the right attorney can make the difference between pleading guilty to half the violation, or walking away with the case dismissed.
