Suffolk County Traffic Lawyer
Suffolk County is home to well known towns and areas such as Babylon, Islip, and the Hamptons, and also has numerous incorporated and unincorporated villages. Almost all Suffolk County traffic tickets, including moving violations, speeding tickets, and cell phone tickets, are handled by the Suffolk County Traffic and Parking Violations Agency, which is located at 100 Veterans Memorial Highway in Hauppauge. On occasion, town and village justice courts also handle traffic ticket cases, depending on where the traffic ticket was written.
In addition, most misdemeanor charges, including DWI and DUI, will be heard at the Suffolk County First District Court located at 400 Carleton Avenue in Central Islip – but once again, just like Suffolk County traffic tickets, some of the misdemeanor charges will be heard in local courts, depending on where the violation took place.
