Mount Cisco Cell Phone Ticket Lawyer
Defense for Texting or Distracted Driving Violations
With the increase of cellular technology and smartphone usage, law enforcement
is cracking down harder than ever on violators. Under New York State law,
it is unlawful to use a hand-held mobile phone or device while driving
a vehicle. However, it is entirely possible to be given a ticket without
doing anything wrong.
In many situations, police officers mistakenly write people tickets who
were not even using their phones. If you have wrongfully received a ticket,
it is in your best interest to fight it. Contact our Mount Cisco cell
phone ticket attorney for the advice you need on how to proceed with your case.

Understanding Your Cell Phone Traffic Offense
If a police officer believes that he or she saw you using your phone while
driving, you could get a ticket for it. Unfortunately, not all officers
will reasonably listen to you explain how you were not using your phone.
A dedicated and tenacious
traffic ticket defense firm can assist you if this situation occurs.
Officers can write a cell phone ticket if they believe you were:
- Reading or writing texts
- Talking on the phone
- Reading or writing emails
- Browsing the internet
- Looking at pictures
- Playing games
These situations exclude trying to contact medical or emergency personnel,
including dialing 911. Our Mount Cisco cell phone violation lawyer has
experience representing even the most complicated traffic ticket cases.
Our firm truly cares about the outcome of your case, which is why we offer
free consultations and after-hour availability for appointments. You can feel confident putting
your case in our capable hands.
Consequences of a Cell Phone Ticket Conviction
It is in your best interest to fight a ticket that was wrongfully given
to you. Most people won’t bother and are just “willing to
pay the fines.” This couldn’t be more harmful! The consequences
of a ticket could put your driver’s license at risk, as well as
cost you lots of money.
Punishments for a cell phone ticket include:
- Adding 5 points to your DMV driving record
- Between $50-$150 in fines
- Driver’s license suspension for 120 days
If you accumulate 11 points on your DMV record within an 18 month period,
your driver’s license may be suspended. This is just one of the
many reasons that you should contact us if you have wrongfully been given
a texting or phone violation. Contacting a Mount Cisco cell phone ticket
lawyer can help you prove your innocence and fight for your driving privileges.
