The recent plight of a 34-year-old Los Angelino could just as easily have
occurred on the streets of
A failure to wear a seatbelt ticket eventually ballooned into a suspended
license and over $5,000 in fines for Kasey Campbell, an African-American
disabled veteran. He tried to handle his own case, but the best deal he
could get was a $200 fine and 800 hours of community service. As he and
his family were living in a homeless shelter and his disabled premature
daughter was in the hospital, he neither paid the fine nor performed the
community service. Mr. Campbell later saw a flier about a lawyer’s
advocacy group and got assistance; his attorney promptly got the tickets
dismissed. “If a lawyer is present to represent you,
they know you are serious, and they know the lawyer knows the law,” concluded Mr. Campbell,
who now works as a musician and gardener in Palmdale. “They just
can’t slam you like they would a regular individual.”
Drivers’ License Suspension
In addition to traffic court, an attorney can also make a big difference
at a license suspension hearing. There are a number of effective
defenses to NOTS and medical suspension proceedings, including:
- The amount of time between the tickets in a points-based suspension hearing,
- Up-to-date information about a patient’s medical condition, and
- Forcing the state to present old records that have often been lost or misplaced.
A lawyer can often either get the matter thrown out entirely or at least
get the suspension period, and other penalties, reduced.
