How Our Mineola NY Traffic Lawyer Will Help You

Traffic Ticket and Violations

Speeding Tickets: Our attorney will thoroughly review the summons to look for deficiencies, and will best advise you on how to defend against it. Will review the driving record of the motorist to determine the best course of action and how the matter can be resolved. Attorney Michael W. Alpert is very familiar with the procedures and protocols for all local Courts and traffic agencies in New York.

Suspended License: This is a serious traffic misdemeanor and attorney Michael W. Alpert takes such matters very seriously. He will review the driving record with the motorist to address the underlying basis for the suspension and the steps to be taken to clear the suspension. Quite often, the attorney can get the misdemeanor reduced to a simple traffic (non-criminal violation) and can get many of the attached tickets dismissed in satisfaction of the plea.

Suspended Registration: This driving misdemeanor often results from a lapse of insurance and depending if the operator of the vehicle is the owner will determine how the case will be resolved. Regardless, the attorney gets great results for his clients.

Cell Phone Tickets: Whether it’s driving while talking or texting on the phone, attorney Michael W. Alpert knows what to look for regarding any facially insufficient components of the traffic violation. Quite often, he can get this five (5) point violation significantly reduced.

Trucking Tickets: These are generally Transportation Law violations such as overweight vehicles, brakes, steering, and other equipment violations that the attorney can get successfully reduced, and quite often dismissed outright. The company must retain an attorney if the tickets are issued to a corporation.

No Insurance Violations: Can carry a one (1) year license revocation and a high civil penalty if convicted. Attorney Michael W. Alpert knows how to navigate through such violations and can assist with getting the best possible violation, regarding whether the operator is the owner, or whether the vehicle carried insurance or not.

Reckless Driving: A five (5) point traffic misdemeanor conviction can result in jail time and have adverse immigration consequences as well as significant effects on your insurance. Attorney Michael W. Alpert is very well versed in the elements of this traffic misdemeanor and has represented many clients with this violation.

Stop Sign Violations: A common three-point violation that attorney Michael Alpert can help with. Quite often, this violation can be reduced to zero points and not affect one’s driving record or auto insurance premiums. If you get pulled over in Mineola, give us a call.

DWI/DUI Defense

If you need an experienced DWI / DUI layer in the Mineola area, attorney Michael W. Alpert has extensive experience defending clients charged with Driving While Intoxicated (DWI) and related charges in Nassau and Suffolk County.

The attorney sits with the client at the initial consultation and thoroughly reviews the charges with the motorist, including possible adverse consequences with the DMV.

He advises the best course of action once all of the discovery material has been submitted, and whether a plea bargain is in the best interests of the motorist, or whether grounds exist for dismissal of the action based upon numerous factors regarding the stop and whether constitutional safeguards were provided to the motorist.
