Administrative Law Hearings
If you are facing a license suspension or revocation due to a refusal to take a breathalyzer test, or under the “Zero-Tolerance” Law you are entitled to a DMV hearing to attempt to have your license reinstated.
If you are facing a license suspension or revocation due a“Negligent Operator” or “Safety Hearing” determination by the Department of Motor Vehicles, an attorney from our firm can represent you at the DMV hearing in an attempt to prevent your driving privileges from being suspended or revoked.
Additionally our office has represented businesses charged with violations of the New York State Vehicle and Traffic law/Commissioner’s Regulations. Our firm has successfully defended individuals and business’ to avoid unnecessary fines, civil penalties and possible revocation or suspension of business licenses.
The Law Office of Stuart A. Kanoff & Associates are experienced in representing clients at DMV hearings. Having an experienced attorney represent you in DMV hearings can help improve your chances of reacquiring your driving privileges. Our office understands that the DMV hearing is just as important as the criminal case, particularly because it acts as a form of preparation for the criminal court process as well.
In addition to a DWI charge, certain traffic violations can cause the need for a Department of Motor Vehicle hearing. If you accumulate a certain amount of points on your driving record within a specified time period you can be labeled a Negligent Operator by the DMV and will need to request a hearing to contest your suspended license.
