San Bernardino traffic ticket defense lawyer serving Victorville, Pomona, Rancho Cucamonga, Fontana & all of San Bernardino County
The California Vehicle Code contains a staggering amount of ways people can get in trouble while driving. Whether it makes sense for you to fight a ticket depends on a number of things, including the cost of your ticket, the amount of points the ticket carries, the amount of points already on your record (you do not want the DMV to label you a “Negligent Operator”), whether you are a commercial driver, and, of course, whether you really did violate the Vehicle Code.
San Bernardino traffic ticket attorney Marcie Gardner has helped numerous clients with all types of traffic cases, including:
- Driving on a suspended license
- Speed contests
- Altering a VIN
- Fraudulent use of handicapped placards
- Red light camera tickets
- Hit and run
- Reckless driving
- No registration, no license and no insurance
- Driving while on a cell phone
- Littering from a moving vehicle
Marcie will help craft a defense strategy specific to your case and your desired outcome. Many times it is a good idea to file what is called a “Trial by Declaration.” This is essentially doing a traffic trial on paper. The reason why it is often helpful to start with a Trial by Declaration is that if the officer does not respond to the paperwork within a set period of time, the Court dismisses the ticket. If the officer does respond, then the Court will review the paperwork. If the Court finds you guilty, you still have the ability to request an in-person court trial for your ticket. If the officer does not appear, the Court will dismiss your ticket. If the officer does appear, you are still able to present your entire case. In certain courthouses, you may be required to post the face amount of your ticket at the time you file the Trial by Declaration paperwork. If you win, the Court returns your money.
