Cohoes is one of only three cities in Albany County (the rest are towns or villages) but the designation is a bit deceiving. Like many of the outlying municipalities in the Capital Region, Cohoes is small both in size and population. Laying just across the Hudson River from Troy and along the interchange I-787, however, here are plenty of opportunities to be called in to the local justice court. Whatever your situation, at the Law Office of Ken McCauley we advocate your rights and protect you from points, high fines, a criminal record and other penalties.
Most traffic violations in this area are issued for speeding on I-787, often to commuters trying to get home from work in downtown Albany or entertaining in Troy for the weekend. Route 32 also connects the city to Watervliet and Route 470 leads visitors in and out of Colonie and Latham.
Other, more serious cases include DWI, suspended license cases like Aggravated Unlicensed Operation (usually due to unanswered tickets or unpaid fines), Unlawful Possession of Marijuana, and other criminal misdemeanors. ✮✮✮✮✮ Read our reviews
How Much Are Your Fees? Fees for regular traffic tickets like speeding, 1144-a, 1110(a), seat belt and cell phone tickets, and other moving violations start as low as $200 per ticket. If you have multiple tickets from a single stop, we will typically give you a bundle discount. Logbook violations, AUO, UPM, and other criminal misdemeanors will cost more, depending on the case. Please call us to discuss the details of your case and we will be happy to give you a quote.
How Much Will My Fine Be? Fines are issued only after you have been convicted or plead guilty to a charge. Fine amounts in New York state are set by the local court but are usually higher for more serious accusations. Fines for speeding, for example, can range anywhere from $50 to $1,000 per conviction and are doubled in work zones. When you hire us, we work to keep your fines to an absolute minimum and reduce or avoid points that can trigger additional DMV fees.
