Save Time Money and DMV Points
Hiring Us May Pay Dividends
With the price of fines for traffic tickets in California, a dismissal may save you a bundle. You are not going to get a dismissal by paying the ticket and requesting traffic school. Contest the ticket and take the chance that the officer does not show or that there is a legal, procedural, or substantive problem with the state’s case. Our attorneys can evaluate a citation case and increase your chances of getting a dismissal.
Contesting the Ticket On Your Own is Time Consuming
Without an attorney, to contest a ticket a person must show up to court on or before the due date shown on the notice to appear (ticket). This is the first court appearance or arraignment. This commonly entails waiting in long lines to check in and then waiting minutes to hours waiting to speak to a judge. Once in front of the judge a plea of not guilty is entered and trial is set for a future date. A person can have their trial within 45 days of the arraignment or waive their statutory right to a speedy trial and set the trial after 45 days from the arraignment.
Then the person must then appear at the trial of the case and conduct a judge trial. The trial is about 10 minutes long and entails presentation of evidence, cross and direct examination of witnessess, arguments on admissibility of the evidence, and argument to the judge. The process of going to trial including driving time may take hours.
We Make It Easy
We can contest your ticket without you doing anything. You don’t ever have to show up to court. Work, socialize, watch TV all day, or go on vacation. Rest assured your ticket is being handled the the King.
Avoid DMV Points
If you are a commercial driver or not eligible for traffic school, it is of utmost importance that you not acquire any DMV points. A DMV point can cause insurance rates to increase, your license suspended, and the loss of employment for commercial drivers. Don’t risk it. Get an attorney who knows how to legally avoid obtaining points on a ticket.
Our Mantra is to keep our clients’ driving records as clean as possible.
