In New York State, a motorist’s driver’s license may be suspended if they accumulate 11 or more points within an 18 month period. Additionally, under new legislation, the DMV can now suspend a driver’s license for convictions dating back beyond the 18-month period if two or more of these convictions were alcohol-related. In this event, a motorist can retain our office to remove or reduce points on their license in order to have their driving privileges restored.
Attorney James Riotto understands how much simpler it can seem to plead to certain traffic offenses instead of taking a break from a hectic schedule to fight these violations.
