Questions and Answers
Question & Answer Session with Scott Russell Law

Welcome to our FAQs section, where I will provide essential insights into traffic and criminal defense matters tailored to Ulster County. I understand the concerns and uncertainties that can arise when facing legal issues in this region. This comprehensive resource aims to address some of the most common questions individuals often have regarding traffic violations and criminal charges.

Whether you’re dealing with a traffic ticket, DUI/DUII charges, or more serious criminal allegations, our experienced team is dedicated to providing accurate and valuable information. I believe that knowledge is empowering, and by equipping you with insights into the legal process, potential consequences, and available options, I hope to guide you toward informed decisions that can positively impact your case.

If you receive a traffic ticket in Ulster County, it’s important to take prompt action. Review the ticket carefully to understand the charges and court date. You generally have the option to plead guilty and pay the fine or contest the ticket with a not-guilty plea. Consulting with a traffic attorney can help you understand your best course of action based on the specific details of your case.

Certain traffic violations in Ulster County, like speeding or running a red light, may result in points being added to your driving record. If too many points are accumulated, a license suspension or increased insurance premiums are a likely outcome. However, it’s sometimes possible to reduce the charges and associated points by contesting the ticket or negotiating with the prosecutor.

While you can handle a traffic ticket on your own, consulting with an experienced traffic attorney can provide significant benefits. As a licensed attorney, I can help you understand the potential consequences, explore possible defenses, and negotiate with the prosecutor on your behalf to achieve an outcome more favorable to you. I can also save you time and stress by representing you in court.

A criminal conviction in Ulster County can lead to serious consequences, such as fines, probation, imprisonment, and a criminal record. A record can affect your employment prospects, housing options, and more. Talking to a defense attorney who has knowledge of the local laws and is experienced in criminal defense strategies, including plea negotiations and trials, is crucial to minimizing these potential outcomes.

The decision between accepting a plea bargain or going to trial depends on your case’s specifics and your attorney’s guidance. While a plea bargain may reduce charges or penalties, a trial allows you to present your case in court. By weighing the pros and cons of your case, you and your attorney will know which direction to go based on the information at hand.

An experienced criminal attorney can provide invaluable assistance by:

  • Investigating your case thoroughly
  • Identifying weaknesses in the prosecution’s case
  • Negotiating with prosecutors for favorable outcomes
  • Representing you in court skillfully
  • Guiding you through the legal process and explaining your options

Having a knowledgeable and experienced attorney by your side may improve your chances of a favorable resolution.
