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
More than 90,000 DWI related arrests are made in New York State every year. They can happen to almost anyone and can result in serious fines, dramatically increased insurance rates, loss of driving privileges, a permanent criminal record and even jail or prison sentences...

DWI (DUI) in New York
Tens of thousands of drivers receive speeding tickets on the NYS Thruway (I-87 and I-90) every year. Most of those drivers simply send in a "guilty" plea without understanding the costly consequences of a speeding conviction in NYS. In fact, in NYS fines for speeding can be as high as $685 and routinely average over $300. On top of the court fines, many speeding convictions trigger a NYS Dept. of Motor Vehicles "responsibility fee," which can be as much as $525 (for accumulating 6 or more "points" on your license). On top of all that damage a traffic ticket can increase your insurance rates for 3 years. As a result a typical speeding ticket for more than 20 mph over the limit can end up costing a driver several thousand dollars over three years.
NYS State Police "Troop T" handles traffic enforcement for the entire length of the Thruway (and all of its extensions, including I-84). Troop T is special unit of the NYS Police dedicated exclusively to patrolling the Thruway. State police troopers use both radar and laser speed detection systems all along the length of the Thruway. The frequently set up speed detection radar/laser observation from places where they cannot be seen or detected before its too late to avoid a ticket.
 
The busiest traffic courts along the Thruway are in Westchester, Rockland, Orange, Ulster, Greene, Albany and Erie counties.  For detailed information about courts along the Thruway, click here.

In 2009 the Troop T officers wrote over 180,000 traffic tickets and more than 100,000 speeding tickets. This amounted to more than 25% of all the speeding tickets issued by the state police during 2009. They also made more than 2,500 DWI arrests and more than 8,000 other traffic related arrests.
