I was new to the area and ended up accidentally speeding. They helped reduce my ticket from 4 points to just a small fine. Everything was done really efficiently and I'm happy with the end results.

Perfect

As mentioned in many of the other reviews. Seth and Monica spelled out what should happen and it did. Ticket for my daughter from our of state was reduced to nonmoving violation. She was visiting colleges in NY, as she only has her permit a moving violation would have resulted in, a loss of her license for 3 months, driving school, and fines etc... 
I had no referral, just read the reviews and crossed my fingers. The price was affordable, they were very responsive, I could not be happier. Wished I had used him a couple of years ago when I got a ticket in NYC that I made the very expensive mistake of trying to defend myself...

Speeding Ticket

I received a speeding ticket doing 80 in a 65 mph zone. I contacted his office, the process was very quick. All contact was by email and very professional. They told you exactly what was going to happen. He got my ticket down to parking on pavement. No points!!! Minimal fine. His fee was very fair, compared to others. I would definitely recommend this firm...

Take it from a Fellow Attorney, Seth Azria is wonderful and gets the job done.

I am an attorney working in the lower Hudson Valley. I had an unfortunate brush with the law on my birthday of all days! which resulted in my receipt of a speeding ticket en-route to a wedding in Buffalo. I'd never had any other infractions on my record and this offense is certainly not an area in which I specialize. I was very upset and worried but immediately upon calling Mr. Azria all of my fears and concerns melted away. Mr. Azria was able to plead my ticket down to a minor violation with no points and a small fee to the Court. Mr. Azria was quick, efficient and responsive. I never had a moment of worry that my case was being neglected. Mr. Azria and his team answered any questions that I had and kept me informed throughout the process. I could not have asked for a better team in my corner and you can't beat the price. You would have thought that I spent a small fortune for the quality of service that I received. Take it from me, Mr. Azria is the attorney you want representing you.

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. Increased penalties for cell phone use and “texting” while driving apply to all drivers and include an increase from a 3-point to a 5-point assessment on the New York driving record for convictions for using a cell phone (NY VTL §1225c2a) or using a portable electronic device (NYC VTL §1225d). For new drivers in their probationary period, a conviction for...

Points mean fees, revocation, suspension, and can cause increases in your insurance premiums. Our goal is to protect your record from points by a securing a dismissal or negotiating a plea bargain to a reduced charge with less or no points. Depending on your driving record and the circumstances of your case, reductions to no-point, non-moving violations are often possible. ...

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.
