Default Traffic ticket lawyer costs in NY

How much does it normally cost to have a lawyer try to defend against a traffic ticket in New York?

Is it worth the cost or is that just really not a good approach?
I was only allegedly going 13 mph over the limit.

Call up a few and ask.

Only you can decide that.

Are you eligible for traffic school. If you are, take it.

If not, the judge will believe the officer every time.

I wish to inform you that in New York for over speeding 11 mph to 30 mph, the range of ticket is $90 to $300. Every New York speeding ticket carries a court fine, mandatory New York State surcharge and points on your driving record. If you are a repeat offender, the range of fines is significantly higher. You may contact the lawyer referral service of the local bar association and they arrange a one time low cost consultation from an attorney after which you may take a decision in the matter.

If you have sufficient evidence to prove that you had not violated the law, you can contest the case and can demand damages with cost including the lawyer fees.

No such thing, thankfully.

I'd say more if I thought for one second that the OP would return.
