Chenango Town Court

Chenango Town Court Lawyer

The town of Chenango has one of the highest-traffic courts in Broome County, so don’t feel too bad if you were stopped here. If for speeding, hopefully your ticket was written for 24mph or below the speed limit (and not in a Work Zone – VTL 1180F). If that’s the case, and if you were only issued one ticket at the time of the stop, you may possibly qualify for the Broome County Traffic Diversion Program. This program applies to traffic ticket cases in all courts in Broome County and can get you out of your traffic ticket in Chenango as well.

If not, here’s some of the other types of V&T, Transportation, and Penal Law cases we handle in this court:

  • Move Over Law (VTL 1144-a)
  • Disobey Traffic Control Device (VTL 1110(a))
  • Speed-Related Tickets (VTL 1180 A, B, C, D, E, F & G)
  • Suspended License (From unpaid fines, child support, DMV fees, other Scofflaw, or A.U.O.)
  • Aggravated Unlicensed Operator – A.U.O. 3rd, 2nd, 1st (VTL 511)
  • Following Too Closely (With or without accident involved)
  • Driving Left of Lane
  • Seat Belt (Including for children – which are not able to be reduced by plea bargain)
  • Unregistered Vehicle
  • Unlicensed Operator (non-misdemeanor)
  • Logbook Violations
  • U.P.M – Unlawful Possession Marijuana
  • DWI, DWAI – Driving While Intoxicated, Driving With Ability Impaired (Alcohol / Other Drugs)

Our attorneys have personal experience here and are not afraid to take your case through to trial when necessary and advisable. In most cases, you should be able to avoid the inconvenience of making a trip to court and still be able to have your points and fines reduced significantly. Not only can this save you the trouble and expense of having to make a long, unpleasant journey, but you can also protect the costs of your insurance policy and avoid any special DMV assessment fees. In misdemeanor cases (AUO, UPM, DWI), however, your personal appearance before a judge may be required – this also applies to exceptionally high speeds and reckless driving charges. Whatever the case, we will always help you understand your rights under the law and the options available to you so that you can make the best decision for your particular situation.

Professional Drivers

If you drive a big-rig, taxi cab, or other vehicle requiring you to have a Commercial Drivers License (CDL), we understand the important of keeping your record clean and clear of points. We also understand that your career and the livelihood of you and your family are at stake. In these types of high-risk situations, it would be difficult to find a group of attorneys better prepared to handle your case.

About the Town of Chenango

Chenango is a modest-sized suburb of Binghamton in eastern Broome County. Part of the reason for it’s popularity regarding traffic tickets is the fact that highly-travelled Interstate I-81, U.S. Route 11, and New York State Route 12 cut right through the middle of the town. So whether you’re a local or just passing through, keep your head low and obey all posted speed limits and signs. And remember, when in doubt – slow down.
