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. However, these guilty pleas can be detrimental to your driving privileges in the future. The Law Office of James L. Riotto II can help you vacate old traffic convictions without putting your life on hold.
This process involves our office making a motion to the Court to reopen your case. If granted, your conviction will be considered “vacated.” Essentially, the ticket will be restored to the position it was at before you pled guilty and Attorney James Riotto will use his effective legal strategies to defend the charge as thoroughly as he would any other traffic violation. He has extensive knowledge of traffic violations and the skills necessary to obtain the best possible outcome for your case.
