Nassau County Traffic Lawyer
Nassau County has two cities and three towns, with incorporated and unincorporated villages within each town. Most Nassau County traffic tickets, including moving violations, red light tickets, and speeding tickets, are handled by the Nassau County Traffic and Parking Violations Agency at 16 Cooper Street in the town of Hempstead. However, village justice courts also handle traffic ticket cases from time to time, depending on where the traffic ticket was written.
In addition, most misdemeanor charges, including DWI and DUI, will be heard at the Nassau County First District Court located at 99 Main Street in Hempstead – but once again, just like Nassau County traffic tickets, some of the misdemeanor charges will be heard in local courts, depending on where the violation took place.
