As traffic ticket attorneys practicing in Suffolk and Nassau counties, we know most of the municipal traffic judges, prosecutors and court personnel better than a lawyer who does not regularly practice in Suffolk and Nassau counties. This means we are successful in keeping traffic violations off of most of our clients’ driving records.

License Suspension

Conveniently located in the heart of Central Islip, down the street from the Central Islip courthouse, Mr. Kassman not only represents you in court but also helps you regain your license by getting your driver’s abstract, which is needed to determine why your license was suspended. After getting the abstract, our firm will review it with you and decide what is necessary to clear your record. We can get your abstract from motor vehicle instantaneously after our lawyer is retained on your case. Additional fees will be implemented if you want us to help clear your record either finding out the location of the suspension and talking with the court to find out how much the suspension will cost to be lifted. Often, you must appear in the court where the suspension is pending if you have never appeared to answer the ticket. Read more about driving with a suspended license.

Trucking Violations

The Law Office of Shawn Kassman represents corporate clients who’s drivers receive summonses for equipment violations. When a truck that is owned by a corporation receives an equipment violation summons to appear in court, these tickets are usually issued in the name of the driver of the truck. When you retain the law office of Shawn Kassman there is a mechanism for transferring the tickets from the employees name to the Corporation name. The legal document that we prepare is called a corporate substitution, what this does is substitute the Corporation for the individual driver of the truck. The individual drivers name is taken off of the summons and replaced by the Corporation. Typically if repairs are made within 24 hours after receiving a ticket for an equipment violation, the Corporation will receive a more favorable plea bargain offer from the District Attorney.
