DOT Construction Violations

Are you the owner of a construction company working in New York City? You may need to consider the heavy fines and other harsh penalties for roadway and sidewalk summonses, violations or notices of violations from the Department of Transportation (DOT). Examples include work performed outside allotted hours, tickets from New York City Department of Environmental Protection officials when work equipment does not meet certain standards, and violations for trucks lacking safety equipment or emitting blue smoke.

I am Barbara Wilkanowski — an attorney offering quality representation for construction companies dealing with a broad range of sidewalk, roadway and sewer repair violations due to permit problems.

As a construction company owner or contractor, you know how expensive fines can be for violations during work on pedestrian walkways and sewers, when lanes on roadways are closed off or congested due to equipment storage, and when noise, dust or air pollution become legal issues. I can assist you to draft a proactive mitigation plan that strategically prepares you for efforts by the New York City Department of Environmental Protection (DEP) and New York City Police Department to allege violations.

More Than 25 Years Of Experience On Your Side

In addition to DOT violations, I handle administrative law matters for construction companies such as:

Many construction and DOT violations are incorrectly assessed. I use my more than 25 years of legal experience, proven skills and client focus to fight any and all of the violations you receive, especially those that are written despite the fact that your construction permit is perfectly valid. I work hard to help you avoid stiff fines that add to your project overhead — and I do my best to cut through the bureaucratic red tape and endless paperwork you would be confronted with if you tried to represent yourself.

I can also handle your appeal if an outcome goes against you.
