I have retained Mr. Azria on several occasions for traffic violations and each one turned out in my favor 100%. This is the lawyer to hire when involved in any traffic incidents. I have recommended him to many friends and all have had great results. You people have to try this law firm out, you won't be disappointed. Mr. Azria is the true "heavy hitter" here in Syracuse. Thank you so much Mr. Azria, you saved my commercial license from any points, and your fee was more than reasonable.

David Bruffett got our traffic ticket dismissed, he was upfront and honest about the process, and he was prompt in returning my call - what more can you ask for? :)

beyond happy with turn out working with them, would recommend them to anyone

Google+ Review

I was entirely satisfied with the representation I received from Azria and Bruffett. In May 2018, I received two tickets for failing to stop adequately at a stop sign (the officer said it was a "rolling stop") and failure to signal more than 100 ft. before a turn. I had never had a moving violation in 20+ years of driving, and I was now suddenly facing 5 points and the possibility of a hefty fine! Azria and Bruffett were able to get the charges reduced to a non-moving violation with no points and a minimal fine. Based on my experience, I would recommend them to someone who is concerned about avoiding points and black marks on their driving record.

Very pleased

I hired Seth to take care of a speeding ticket. He got it reduced to a no point ticket. The whole process was very simple and done through email. He took the time to answer any questions I had and his office kept me informed during the process.

Distracted Driving means Using a Cell Phone or Portable Electronic Device Driving distracted is dangerous and in recent years New York State has taken notice and has made the vehicle and traffic law more strict.

A Driver Responsibility Assessment is a fee imposed by the New York State DMV on drivers with certain traffic, alcohol, or drug related convictions. The DMV will mail the bill for this assessment to your home after your case has been concluded and it must be paid in addition to fines, surcharges, and other penalties from the courts. Pleading guilty to traveling 86 mph on the New York Thruway is enough to incur the assessment and it will cost you an extra $300. This extra penalty has surprised many people.
