Other Moving Violations

Poughkeepsie Traffic Ticket Attorney

Paying a traffic citation is more than meets the eye. It is a guilty plea. It will count as a prior offense for any future tickets. It may be points against your license. It may increase your insurance premiums. It may provide grounds for a lawsuit against you. And so on.

The Law Office of Kelley M. Enderley, PC can tell you where you stand and help you see the hidden consequences. Our experience with moving violations throughout the Hudson Valley enables us to get many tickets dismissed or reduced when the average person would probably not get the same disposition.

Contact us today to schedule a consultation. We handle every type of traffic violation in Dutchess, Ulster, Orange, Putnam and Columbia counties of New York.

Kelley M. Enderley has a demonstrated record of reducing point violations to non-point violations (such as parking tickets), or getting tickets dismissed entirely. She can advise on the merits of paying the fine versus challenging the ticket, and if she could not get any better result than you would on your own, she will say so.
