I received a ticket for a moving violation back in 2015, in Brooklyn, NY, and recruited a local law firm to help me fight this traffic ticket.
The firm's strategy was to keep postponing the hearing until the officer who issued this ticket would not show up, making the case dismissed.
Several days ago I received a call from the law office saying that the hearing had actually happened this year, and that I have been found guilty.
They also claimed that points for this violation are now expired because the ticket was issued in 2015.
My questions are:
- How true is their last statement about expiring points?
- Would car insurance companies look at expired violations to increase my premium?
