Defending Against Speeding, Reckless Driving and Other Traffic Charges

The California Vehicle Code includes point values for a wide range of traffic and vehicle violations. If you accumulate too many points on your driving record too quickly, your driver's license will be suspended or revoked by the Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV).

While the loss of a license is a serious matter for anyone, it can be especially damaging to drivers who rely on their commercial driver's licenses (CDLs) for their livelihood.

It almost always makes sense to fight your ticket. I can help

I am experienced at helping clients fight traffic tickets in court and negotiate them down to nonpoint violations, like coasting, when possible. I am prepared to defend commercial, noncommercial and out-of-state drivers against all types of traffic charges, including:

  • Driving under the influence
  • Speeding and excessive speeding
  • Reckless driving and drag racing
  • Running stop signs and red lights
  • Driving on the wrong side
  • Driving on a suspended license
  • Leaving the scene of an accident

As an independent lawyer practicing since 1994, I provide my clients with personal attention and dedicated representation backed by experience. I will give you honest advice on your chances for defeating your traffic ticket in court or negotiating a deal with the prosecutor.
