Buffalo Traffic Violation Attorney
Legal Help for Tickets, Misdemeanors & More
If you get a ticket for any sort of moving violation in New York, you can plead guilty and pay online without appearing in court. If you plead not guilty, you may attend a hearing to state your case.
Since most traffic tickets don’t constitute a criminal offense, you may not think you need a criminal defense lawyer. However, if you want to fight your ticket in court, or if you have multiple tickets that are impacting your record, you could benefit from legal representation. The Buffalo traffic violation lawyer at James Quinn Auricchio, Esq. can be the help you need.
Take your first step toward resolving your ticket by calling us today at (716) 222-8489.
Traffic Infractions vs. Misdemeanors
Getting a ticket does not mean you have committed a criminal offense. Most tickets are the result of an “infraction,” which only goes on your driving record, not your criminal record.
The following are some common traffic offenses:
- Failure to follow traffic signs or basic driving rules
- Improper passing, or changing lanes unsafely
- Texting or other electronics usage while driving
These infractions usually result in points on your license. If you incur too many points or fail to pay fines resulting from infractions, your license can be suspended. A conviction of driving without insurance will also result in license suspension.
However, driving with a suspended or revoked license is a misdemeanor—a criminal offense—in the state of New York. If you fail to appear in court or have lost track of your tickets, you may have your license revoked without even knowing it.
You have a short window of time in which to respond to traffic tickets. If you need help fighting a ticket, or even just navigating the system, call us at James Quinn Auricchio, Esq. We give personal attention to each case so you can know that your concerns are addressed by a caring, experienced attorney.

The best lawyers are not the most expensive ones. They’re not the cheap ones either. If you judge the best lawyers by the results they achieve for their clients, the best lawyers are the ones that have experience, that know how to effectively communicate with their client, and work hard to achieve the best possible out come for their client.
Experience allows a good attorney to obtain the best possible result in less time. That means they don’t have to charge their clients a ton of money. That doesn’t mean you want the cheapest lawyer either though.
Be careful, some lawyers will charge substantially less than others. They work off of volume. But if your case presents unique challenges, they’ll be way too busy to notice issues that could make the difference in your case.
Plan on sitting down with three lawyers when you’re choosing. After ten minutes, most experienced lawyers will be able to give you a pretty educated estimate as to the costs and give you a quote.
