So today I received a license suspension notification in the mail for a failure to answer a summons for speeding from 11/19/2004. A day after the start of the NY State Driver Assessment program (more then 6 points in 18 month period equals $$$). Since I pled guilty to tickets back in 05 I will get hit with the fine and surcharge which I would like to avoid.
I'm thinking of getting a lawyer so I wouldn't have to go up there as well as not get any points. I was curious if anyone could recommend one?

I don't think a lawyer will work since you did plead guilty. But it is worth a shot to try. Good luck and keep us posted.

I pled guilty to another incident back in 05 within the 18 month period of that assessment rule. I haven't pled to this ticket yet,I just received the paper work today.I was going to plea not guilty though.

A lawyer will work since you don't want to deal with the court stuff. You might still get points taking off but they may cut the points in half. A lawyer will slow the progress of the paper work and delay it for 1 year or more. If they fine you guilty in the end you will still have to pay the ticket + lawyer fees. How fast was you going over the speed limit? Since your license is suspended it might cost you a arm and a leg for a lawyer.

License isn't suspended which is weird cuz it should be since the incident was 8 years ago. It's a small town of 300 people and it says that you rarely get a DA so what's the chances that the trooper that pulled me over is still there? Then what happens to the ticket?
