Fighting a traffic ticket in New York City is very different from doing so elsewhere in New York. Specifically, violations of New York's Vehicle and Traffic Law are adjudicated at the Traffic Violations Bureau, an administrative agency run by the Department of Motor Vehicles.
In this session, attorney Matthew Weiss explains the unique workings of the Traffic Violations Bureau as well as various laws relating to maintaining one's privilege to drive in New York. Attorneys will leave with a better understanding of the various vehicle and traffic laws, how to fight such cases, and the DMV point system.
In 1991, Matthew Weiss co-founded his current law practice, eventually buying out his former partner in 2000. Through the years, 888-Red-Light has successfully resolved thousands of speeding tickets , traffic tickets and truck tickets for its clients by way of dismissal or plea bargain. Mr. Weiss has written many articles on vehicle and traffic law, and lectures other lawyers on the subject. You can read more about this traffic attorney on his web site.
Mr. Weiss is a New York traffic lawyer who graduated Hofstra Law School in 1984. He was part of the Law Review and won the law school's prestigious Procedure Award. Upon graduation, he became one of the first Hofstra Law School graduates to work at the New York State Court of Appeals (New York State's highest court), and worked on various appellate matters. He then worked for two years at Rivkin, Radler, Bayh, Hart & Kremer, a 200-plus attorney law firm.
