Don't Get 'Slammed;' Get A Lawyer

The recent plight of a 34-year-old Los Angelino could just as easily have occurred on the streets of Bakersfield.

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.
