I remember in elementary school back in Oceanside, N.Y. when I would get in trouble. The teachers would always threaten me that the referral will always be on my “permanent record.” It struck fear in me and usually got me to straighten up. The dreaded permanent record fear stayed with me until college. It seemed to be this G-d like file that would follow me for the rest of my life. It was only in college that I realized, the… Continue reading: I Got a Speeding Ticket? How Long is a Traffic Ticket on My Record?

Way back when, when people started tooling around in those crazy “horseless carriages,” it quickly became apparent that some measure of control needed to be implemented for the betterment, not to mention the safety, of society. This led to the implementation of laws that were specifically designed to address driving and the hazards that it can present. Although this system was intended to be based upon the general idea that those accused are innocent until proven guilty, that is not… Continue reading: A Few Reasons Why I Like My Job as a Traffic Ticket Lawyer 20 Years
Summer break – for children, it’s the time of year that seems to never come soon enough, and once here, fades all too quickly. For those residents who grew up in Florida, it is easy to recollect long, sweltering days and waiting with baited breath for the revitalizing hint of a tropical breeze. Afternoon thunderstorms would arise suddenly, cooling the days ever so slightly, and raising steam off of scorched pavement that only moments before toasted the bare feet of… Continue reading: The End of Summer Break – Let the Speeding Tickets Roll

Do you remember when you were a kid or young adult and police officers just seemed nice? I sure do. Of course, we were taught that the whole reason to have police officers was to “protect and serve” the communities that they patrolled. There was no reason not to trust that they would do just that. Elementary school administrators would say to us, “If you are ever in trouble, always go to a policeman for help.” Cops were almost always… Continue reading: Keep Calm, Carry On, and Call a Good Traffic Ticket Attorney
Maybe I have become jaded after working in the field of traffic law for so long, yet it fails to surprise me how easy it is to get a speeding ticket.

Most of us who live in South Florida love it here, but there are those who say they miss “the seasons.” Hey, we have seasons – we just got through tourist season and then spring break season, and now we are coming up on one of the most interesting, yet potentially deadly seasons of all – hurricane season. Okay, so maybe those are not the types of seasons that they are referring to. One source defines a hurricane as follows:… Continue reading: Hurricane Season: Plan Your Evacuation Route | BUT DON’T SPEED!
Most of us love dogs, and if not dogs specifically, then animals in general. In fact, I have noticed over the last several years a growing trend towards animal advocacy. Years ago it was rare, if ever, that you heard of a “no-kill” shelter. Stray dogs and cats were simply picked up by animal control and then dropped off at local animal shelters. If that pet was not claimed or adopted, euthanasia was imminent. It is a sad fact, but… Continue reading: The Controversial Use of Canine Cops | Speeders beware the Ticket Man
