Protecting Your Business Interests When Violations Threaten Your Bottom Line
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 costly 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 and 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 alleged 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:
- New York Police Department traffic violations
- Department of Environmental Protection (DEP) violations, air, noise or dust mitigation violations
- Commercial licensing issues for truck drivers
- Truck safety violations
- Fire safety violations that go to Criminal Court in New York City and District Court in Hempstead, Long Island
Many constructions and DOT violations are incorrectly assessed. I will use my more than 25 years of legal experience, proven skills and client focus to fight any violations you receive, especially those that are written despite the fact that your construction permit is perfectly valid. I will work hard to help you avoid stiff fines that add to your project overhead — and I will 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.
When you have a problem like a DOT violation, only a problem-solving lawyer with a reputation for results can put that problem behind you. As your lawyer, I am accessible to answer your questions and concerns throughout the legal process.
