From traffic offenses to more serious criminal allegations, we are here to provide you with the guidance you need to make informed decisions and confidently approach your situation.

Absolutely, contesting a traffic ticket is a worthwhile option. Even minor traffic violations can lead to insurance rate increases, points on your license, and potentially even your license being suspended if accumulated over time. By contesting the ticket, you can mitigate these consequences and potentially have the charges reduced or dismissed.

As a traffic ticket attorney in Sullivan County, Scott Russell Law can provide invaluable assistance. We understand the local laws, court procedures, and potential defenses specific to the area. As an attorney, I can review the details of your case, identify any flaws or weaknesses in the prosecution’s evidence, and present a strong defense on your behalf. As your legal representative, I aim to minimize the negative impact of increased insurance rates and added points on your driving record.

You often won’t need to attend court personally if you hire a traffic ticket attorney. Your attorney can often represent you, saving you time, money, and other potential inconveniences. I can negotiate with the prosecutor, present your case, and update you on progress. However, there are instances where your presence is required, such as for a trial. I can advise you if and when your presence is necessary.

Taking immediate action is important if you’ve been charged with a crime in Sullivan County.

1st: Exercise your right to remain silent. Only make statements to law enforcement or the prosecutor with your lawyer present.

  • Court Representation: If your case goes to trial, I will provide strong courtroom representation, presenting your case persuasively and challenging the prosecution’s evidence.
  • Support and Guidance: I will guide you through the legal process to ensure you make informed decisions while providing emotional support during a challenging time.
