“Mr. Militello is the BEST!”
“I have your back”
Brighton, NY DWI Attorneys
Attorneys from The Militello Law Firm appear in Brighton Town Court regularly; our office is just a few minutes away from the courthouse. Brighton, NY is a town of just over 36,000 people, located directly south of the city of Rochester. Brighton cradles the city, reaching up around the east side, almost touching Irondequoit Bay, and the west end of town is bordered by the Genesee River.
Brighton doesn’t have a formal village center, but it does have the Twelve Corners located just a few miles west from our office. The Twelve Corners is a group of three intersections in a business district that also abuts Brighton High School and Twelve Corners Middle School. The stretch of Monroe Avenue that leads to the Twelve Corners is lined with successful family-owned businesses surrounded by residential housing. You can find some of the best steaks in the city on this strip, as well as half a dozen jewelers, realtors, tailor shops, salons and spas.
The Brighton Town Court has two justices and a full-time staff of clerks and deputies who handle a docket of approximately five hundred drunk driving cases per year, as well as 9,500 other cases. Our attorneys appear before both judges regularly, and we can say that although the caseload is heavy in Brighton Town Court, both judges move their dockets along relatively quickly. This is not a court where a defendant with a lawyer will still be waiting to be called two hours after court begins.
The reason that Brighton’s property values are among the highest in Monroe County is because Brighton High School is regularly ranked as one of the top high schools in the country. In 2013, U.S. News ranked BHS #195 (out of 21,000) in the country and #33 in New York. Newsweek ranked BHS #402 of the top 2,000 high schools in the nation. Brighton High School has extra curricular activities and clubs equal to those of the best schools in the nation.
