When to Hire a Lawyer for Your First Nassau County Ticket
Most people determine that a first Nassau County ticket, whether a ticket for speeding, reckless driving, or failure to signal, doesn’t warrant the attention of a Nassau County lawyer. Yet, the repercussions of a traffic ticket in Nassau County, Long Island, or elsewhere in New York are far bigger than just paying a fine or fee.
You should hire a Nassau County ticket lawyer at Austin Law Associates if you face any of the following repercussions from a single ticket:
- Loss of your driver’s license for points on your New York license;
- Loss of your driver’s license due to tickets received in other states;
- Increase in your insurance rates or request for an at-risk-driver insurance policy;
- Revocation of your commercial driver’s license; or
- Additional fines to keep your commercial driver’s license.
