Expertise , Convenience and Experience.
Expertise. We have handled literally thousands of traffic tickets and know what works and what doesn’t. Some people have fought tickets by themselves but were surprised and disappointed when the defense they presented failed. Frustrated, they turned to a professional the next time around.
Convenience. I will make all appearances for you. You won’t need to go to court. If you decide to fight your ticket by yourself, you may need to take time off work. Twice. Once for the arraignment and once for the trial. These appearances will likely take several hours each time.
Experience. 28 years of solely fighting traffic tickets and misdemeanors. Mr. Ticket and his team are the most knowledgeable around and often are used by other attorneys to represent themselves and their clients.
No. We can make all appearances for you and you will never need to go to the courthouse.
Initial consultation is free. If retained, our fee will vary depending on your case. Most tickets will be $99.
Yes. We can fight a photo red light camera ticket even if the pictures and video appear to show a violation. On the day of trial an officer will appear as a witness for the People. This officer will present the People’s evidence against you to the court. This will consist of a package containing photographs, video and supporting documents. There are several sources of legal authority that govern the establishment of photo red light camera enforcement and sections of the California Vehicle Code that authorize the prosecution of individuals with photo red light camera evidence. Taken in conjunction with the California Evidence Code, there are many possible defenses to a photo red light camera charge. We will look at all possible defenses and decide what is best based on the evidence before the court.
Conviction of speed in excess of 100 mph will result in not one but two points on your DMV record. This will most likely result in a large increase in your insurance premiums. In addition, the court may decide to suspend your license for up to 30 days. If there is a prior conviction for speed over 100 mph, the court may suspend your license for up to 6 months.
The court generally sends out a courtesy notice or letter as you get closer to the court date for your ticket. However, the court is not required to send you anything. The date that is indicated on the bottom portion of the ticket is the only notice that is required to be given to you.
If you have old tickets that you never went to court on and recently found out about them or learned they are causing a hold on your driver’s license, you can either pay off the ticket at the court, or you can contest the underlying ticket and the civil assessment for the failure to appear at the court.
If you never went to court on the tickets, you can still set the tickets for trial. The advantage is that as ticket age and get older, the law enforcement agencies often get rid of or purge the tickets. So for old tickets, it is possible the officer does not have any notes for the date set for trial. If that is the case, you win the underlying citation. You still need to deal with the civil assessment and see if the court is willing to reduce that fine. When you appear or have a traffic ticket attorney appear at court on the old ticket it will lift the hold on your driver’s license at the DMV also.
On the other hand, if you went to court and your case was resolved either by pleading guilty/no contest or being found guilty after a traffic ticket trial, you will likely need to pay the amount you owe in order to have your driving privilege reinstated.
No. Some violations are considered points and others are not. It is also true that some traffic violations that count as points could count as two points. Examples of non-point offenses are cell phone tickets, and texting tickets. Examples of two point offenses are driving on a suspended license or driving under the influence.
