There is that terrible feeling in your stomach when you have been driving down the road and see those flashing red and blue lights behind you. The cop pulls you over and ask if you know how fast you were going. Then he or she hands over the dread traffic ticket. You then start picturing raising insurance rates due to traffic ticket points. You picture going to court on the date and time listed on the traffic ticket and the judge throwing the book at you. Is it even worth fighting a traffic ticket?
Fighting a traffic ticket
People always wonder if it is worth the hassle of fighting a traffic ticket.

However, traffic ticket cases are something that an experienced attorney can handle on your behalf. There are many ways to fight traffic tickets which can lead to better results and less action against your license and often times dismissal.
You need an experienced traffic ticket attorney who can go to court and fight for your rights!
Traffic ticket: Out of State License
Many drivers who receive traffic tickets in California are from another state. People travel here for business or vacation and receive traffic tickets because they are unfamiliar with our roadways. The DMV in California can and does communicate with DMVs in other states. This means that if there is an action against your license taken by a California law enforcement agency, it will be reported to your state DMV and action can be taken there. For example, while a traffic ticket for speeding in a construction zone in California can be bad, in Illinois it can result in a 2 month license suspension.
It is important that you hire an experienced and capable attorney to handle your traffic ticket in California. You need to trust that your attorney will handle the traffic ticket matter on your behalf while you are in another state. You need Stephanie M. Arrache!
Local Traffic Ticket Attorneys
If you are pulled over and cited to appear in Indio, Banning or Joshua Tree, then you need a local traffic ticket attorney on your side. Do not be fooled by lawyers from out of town with big promises. Often times, these attorneys will hire local appearance attorneys to go to court for your traffic ticket rather than go themselves. You need to hire a local attorney who is experienced in both traffic tickets and the local courts. You need to hire traffic ticket attorney Stephanie M. Arrache!
