We Are Committed To Keeping Your Points And Premiums Low

Driving points can add up quickly. Insurance premiums can too. For these two reasons, do not pay any traffic ticket, until you have taken the time to speak with a lawyer who has experience in these matters.

At Larkin, Ingrassia & Tepermayster, LLP, we can provide the experienced legal help you need to successfully challenge serious traffic citations, protect your driving privileges and keep your insurance premiums low. Our practice is based in the traffic courts of Orange and Ulster Counties County but includes a number of the traffic courts in the surrounding counties of New York as well.

Our Firm Will Use Our Knowledge To Craft An Effective Defense For You

Even just a few points can result in higher insurance rates for several years — something that can literally cost you thousands of dollars.

Too many points and the insurance company can refuse to renew your policy or even cancel your insurance policy. Once this happens, you will face enormous difficulty in getting another insurance company to issue a new policy at a price you can afford. In addition, it is illegal to drive without insurance in New York, so you will have to pay whatever price they ask or risk the more severe consequences of getting caught driving with no insurance.

Our attorneys know what's at stake in terms of your insurance and will fight to keep any new points from being added to your record.
