Traffic Tickets in Los Angeles

We Have Helped Thousands of Clients

Traffic tickets can happen to anyone, particularly in a large and confusing city like L.A. Many traffic tickets are nothing more than a minor inconvenience that is easily resolved. However, the consequences for multiple offenses or for not dealing with tickets by the deadline can be severe. You may be facing penalties that include:
 
  • Points on your DMV record
  • Increased insurance payments
  • Loss of driving privileges
Should you neglect to pay a fine or fail to appear in court on a moving violation, you may even find yourself facing jail time. Additionally, the amount of your fine may be increased significantly and referred to GC Services, a collection agency used by Los Angeles County Superior Court. Believe us, you do not want to be referred to GC Services! Paying your fine once it has been referred not only means an increase in total cost to you, it is the same as pleading guilty to the charge, something you may not intend to do.

We have helped thousands of clients avoid the negative consequences associated with their traffic tickets. Further, we have helped them do so at a cost that is significantly less than they would have paid collections had they handled things on their own. Contact our firm as soon as possible to get a sense of your options.
 

Do Not Wait Until Your Fine has been Referred to GC Services

Not all traffic tickets require the services of an attorney. Sometimes, as frustrating as it may be, it is cheaper and faster to simply pay a ticket and move on with your life. However, there are times when obtaining the services of an attorney with experience dealing with traffic tickets is advantageous. It is time to contact an attorney about your traffic tickets when:
 
  • You did not pay your ticket by the deadline
  • You have more than one unpaid traffic ticket
  • Your traffic ticket is a misdemeanor (as opposed to an infraction)
  • Your traffic ticket status is “VC 40509.5 Holds”
  • You have a Class A or commercial license
  • You already have points on your DMV record
Do not wait until your fine has been referred to GC Services and an arrest warrant or bench warrant has been issued for your arrest. Contact our firm as soon as possible to for assistance clearing up your license suspension and avoiding further legal action.
 

One Traffic Ticket May Permanently Impact Your Employability

Did you know that commercial license holders are not eligible to attend traffic school, and further, they may not keep their commercial license if they have even a single point on their DMV record? If you have a Class A license, one traffic ticket may permanently impact your employability. If you are a professional driver, it is absolutely imperative that you fight every single ticket you receive.

Commercial license holders aren’t the only ones who depend on their ability to drive for their careers, however. Especially in a city as large and unwieldy as L.A., an untimely license suspension can make it difficult, if not impossible, to hold down a job.  We understand the impact traffic tickets can have on your life.
