Capital District & Adirondack Area Lawyers
Getting Speeding Tickets in Clifton Park NY Court Clifton Park, NY is one of the most heavily traveled upon areas in the Capital District. Its area stretches from Exits 8 through 12 on I87, AKA the Northway. While the speed limit is mostly 65 mph on the vast majority of the Northway, it slows down to 55 mph a mile or so past the Twin Bridges going south, right near the border between Albany and Saratoga counties. This is where most people, even life long residents of the area, forget about the sudden speed decrease and unsuspectingly get pulled over by the police for speeding. Even if one is keeping with the flow of traffic, the boys in blue won't have any sympathy. So in order to avoid getting stopped…

Don’t Ignore a Seatbelt Ticket

Legal Services
Most everyone knows the slogan "click it or ticket." Getting a ticket for not wearing a seatbelt may seem like a minor infraction but could in fact come back to haunt you down the road, no pun intended. In New York, a seatbelt infraction does not carry any points but does impose a fine. It also appears on the guilty party's driving record. By appearing on a driver's record, it can have an adverse effect when attempting to plea to a reduced charge in the future to a speeding violation or failure to obey a traffic device. These infractions carry points as well as fines. Now here is where ignoring a seat belt ticket can come back to bite you. Let's say one is ticketed for not wearing their seatbelt…

Make sure you are not driving excessively through a school or work zone. Points are assessed double in such zoned areas so be sure to stay odometer-alert when passing through.   2. Don't assume the "Within 10 Miles an Hour Rule." This mythical unwritten rule can come back to haunt those who take faith in it. Many people are under the wrongful assumption that the police will not pull a driver over if they are speeding within 10 miles over the posted limit. This is simply not the case so be careful and try to keep that needle as close as possible to what the…

[caption id="attachment_1366" align="alignleft" width="228"] How to Make a Good Impression in Court[/caption] Top 5 Ways to Make a Good Impression in Court 1. Dress for success! Make sure you wear something appropriate for the situation. I know a lot of people are the "T-Shirt and Jeans" type, but that is not the proper attire for court. One does not have to wear a 3 piece suit, however, just something neat and professional looking. A good fail safe outfit for males would be a pair of dress pants and a shirt and tie. That look never goes out of style and it is appropriate for just about any situation. For the ladies, I am less versed in women's fashion, but something conservative is most always a safe bet. 2.

What to do after getting a Criminal Charge

What to do after getting a Criminal Charge

Blog, Criminal Law
When faced with a criminal charge, whether it be a felony or misdemeanor, there are numerous things one should take into account before dealing with the issue head on. First, one should know their basic rights. Everyone is familiar in some fashion with the "Miranda Rights, " which begin with "You have the right to remain silent." This statement is an extremely important one in that it gives the accused the right to not say anything that would potentially incriminate themselves in the future. More often than not, defendants are convicted not on the actual accused crime itself, but on the criminal procedure that follows thereafter. All sorts of verbose technicalities ensue during a criminal investigation and if one were to slip and say the wrong thing out of context,…

New York’s No Fault Divorce

Blog, Hot Topics in Law
[caption id="attachment_693" align="alignleft" width="260"] No Fault Divorce Lawyer Option[/caption] DIVORCE BY REASON OF NO FAULT IN UPSTATE NY Recently NY passed new legislation within the domestic relation law that now allows couples to divorce by reason of "no fault." This is similar to divorce by way of irreconcilable differences, which is a divorce option in other states. What this means is that neither party is holding the other responsible for the pending dissolution if the marriage. Prior to this recent legislation, the quickest way to divorce by way of mutual agreement without holding either party at fault was to file a separation agreement and then live separate and apart for at least one year. After such time, one of the parties would file for divorce and a judgment was typically…
