Traffic ticket defense:

Did you receive a speeding or traffic ticket for the Guilderland Town Court?
Speeding ticket lawyer Joe Cifarelli has successfully negotiated reductions of speeding and traffic violations in the Guilderland Town Court. As an experienced lawyer Joe has been practicing law for over 20 years and he has proven himself as a reliable seasoned attorney. Since Joe’s practice is limited to speeding and traffic ticket legal defense, he has earned a professional reputation with the Guilderland Town Court and the Town Attorney’s Office. It’s all about results, and Joe knows how to get them.

Joe regularly appears in the Guilderland Town Court representing client’s on vehicle & traffic violations including the following;

Section 1180- D, speed in zone, (points range from 3 to 11 points depending on the charged rate of speed).

Section 1180-F, speed in work zone, (points range from 3 to 11 points depending on the charged rate of speed- FINES ARE DOUBLED).

Section 1225-C, Cell Phone violations (5 points).

Section 1225-D Use of Portable Electronic Devices (texting) (5 points)

Section 1110a, failure to obey a traffic control deivce, (2 points)

Since six points will require you to pay a civil penalty (New York State Driver’s responsibility assessment) and 11 points or more results in license suspension, a simple speeding ticket or cell phone ticket can be an insurance nightmare!
