Hiring the right attorney to defend your Nassau County cell phone ticket is a very important decision. Cell phone / portable electronic device tickets carry points that can affect your driver’s license and your insurance premiums. In addition, if you receive 6 or more points on your drivers license within any 18 month period of time you will have to pay a Driver Responsibility Assessment Act fee. Moreover, if you receive over 10 points on your license within that same time period your license can be suspended or even revoked by the Department of Motor Vehicles. Save time, save points and save money with effective representation of counsel.
