Traffic lawyers are often called traffic cops.
But they also provide a crucial service to consumers by helping them navigate the labyrinth of laws that govern their dealings with businesses and individuals.
And for a lot of people, traffic law is a major barrier to their ability to access their finances.
That’s because traffic law shops have no financial information that can be shared with clients or the public.
That means the law firms they work with can’t offer clients a better view of their financial situation.
In the United States, traffic lawyer salaries range from $400,000 to $1 million per year.
Some states, including Arizona, New Mexico, and Wyoming, pay more.
And that’s not necessarily bad for a traffic lawyer, since a lot more people are getting traffic law help than they are using their own resources to do so.
But a growing number of states are beginning to tackle this problem.
In New York, for instance, a state law recently passed would require traffic lawyers to have access to financial information for their clients, including their clients’ credit card and bank statements, as well as other data they have access for the same reason.
That information would have to be available to the public, but not shared with anyone.
New York traffic lawyer Gary Stokes, who works in the Manhattan office of law firm Covington & Burling, says that the change in state law, which passed in March, is an important step toward making it easier for clients to navigate their finances with traffic lawyer assistance.
“The ability to share financial information is very important, because if you don’t have access, you’re going to miss out on a lot,” Stokes said.
“And the more you share, the better you can serve your clients.”
New York has already seen some of the changes that the law will require, and the law firm is already helping some clients who want access to their financial information.
For instance, Stokes and his colleagues at Covingston & Burlings have been assisting clients in obtaining and maintaining their accounts with the New York State Department of Financial Services, which is tasked with overseeing the state’s financial services industry.
“It’s not a new issue,” Stoke said.
But “the attention to detail and the quality of information that we are providing has improved significantly in New York.
So, the changes in New Hampshire are also very important.”
Stokes said his firm has received requests from clients across the state to help them navigate their financial affairs.
But as with many states, he said that a few states are not going to offer a better level of access than others.
In some cases, it might not even be possible for a client to access his or her financial information, he noted.
In some cases it might be impossible for clients in New Jersey or New York to find a traffic law lawyer who can assist them in the state.
In one of the states where Stokes works, for example, the New Hampshire Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) has limited financial assistance options for clients.
But the DMV has also taken steps to help clients navigate the state by requiring that the financial information be shared to the state agency that provides financial services.
That has led to a significant uptick in traffic law referrals to New Hampshire, Stoke noted.
“In some ways, the change has actually helped increase traffic, because there are so many more people that are looking for traffic law services than there were before,” he said.
New Hampshire traffic lawyer John R. Schmitz, who has worked in New England traffic law for the past decade, said the state has become a destination for his clients looking for help navigating their finances in the past few years.
“People are starting to realize that they need to be in New Bedford, New Hampshire,” he told Engadge.
“We are now a hub of traffic law, and we are able to help people navigate their lives.”
