Some big changes are coming to the Town Court of Greenburgh in 2012 and they should have a huge effect on the way the Court handles everything from Speeding Tickets to DWI’s. Firstly, as a result of their loss in the primary long time Town Judge’s Sandra Forster and Doris Friedman will no longer be Judges in the Town of Greenburgh Court. Two new judges will take their place. In addition, it was announced last month that Regina Hill, the Court Administrator brought in to improve Court operations in Greenburgh would also be stepping down.

Three Judges were sworn in on December 23, 2011 by New York Court of Appeals Associate Judge Theodore Jones. The new Judges as of January 1, 2012 will be Arlene Gordon-Oliver, Walter Rivera and Delores Scott Brathwaite. Judge Arlene Gordon-Oliver is the only returning judge having served in the Town of Greenburgh Court since 2007. In addition, the search continues for a replacement for Regina Hill.

One of the changes that is expected in 2012 will be another night court session in the Town of Greenburgh. One night per week was already added and another one is expected to be added soon.

Have you been charged with speeding, passing a red-light, unsafe lane change or other traffic infraction in Buchanan, New York and want to be represented by experienced and competent attorneys at a reasonable fee? The lawyers at Tilem & Associates have handled thousands of traffic tickets in courts throughout New York State including the Buchanan Village Court. Not only can Tilem & Associates provide you with experienced representation on your speeding ticket (or any other traffic infraction), they are also affordable.

Until August 31, 2011, Tilem & Associates is offering a Summer Special price of just $195.00 for representation on any traffic ticket charging traffic infractions in any court located in Westchester County, Rockland County, Broome County and St. Lawrence County. This Summer Special $195.00 price applies to all traffic infractions except Leaving the Scene of an Incident or Driving While Ability Impaired although our fees are very reasonable for those charges as well. Terms and Conditions apply and you must read them. Also, you must mention this Summer Special $195.00 when you first call us. See the Terms and Conditions of this offer.

Keep in mind, just about any attorney can handle traffic tickets (and plenty are doing so). Being the busiest and “best” traffic court attorney has very little to do with one’s legal skills and everything to do with one’s internet marking skills. Unless you are unlucky enough to retain a total buffoon of an attorney (and there are a few out there), you will most likely get just about the same plea bargain deal no matter which attorney you hire. There is no “Johnny Cochran” roaming around traffic court.

If you received a traffic ticket for speeding, passing a red-light, stop-sign, etc, in the City of Yonkers and pleaded not guilty, you will receive conference notice from the court instructing you to appear at the court on a particular day to meet with the prosecutor to discuss a possible plea bargain whereby the charge will be reduced in return for you pleading guilty. Our attorneys at Tilem & Associates can represent you in Yonkers and our lawyers can appear at this conference for you. In most cases, you do not have to come to court.

Generally traffic infractions in Yonkers are prosecuted by the officer who issued the summons or another officer from the same law enforcement agency. Several law enforcement agencies issue tickets within the City of Yonkers including the Yonkers Police Department, Westchester County Police Department and the New York State Police. Therefore, you can expect to meet with a police officer as opposed to a district attorney or city attorney as you might in other jurisdictions.

The City Court of Yonkers is located at 100 So. Broadway, Yonkers, NY 10701. The number for traffic matters is 914-831-6910. There is a parking lot for the courthouse but it fills quickly so get there early or expect to park on the street. Street parking is metered so bring change; tickets can be as much as $40.00. When you enter the courthouse you will pass through a metal detector and you might be further searched. Bags, pocketbooks, briefcases, etc will be searched so leave your handguns and controlled substances at home.
