Defense for Cell Phone Tickets
There are a number of options we may be able to explore and use to build a defense on your behalf. If we can prove that your usage falls into an exception, such as making an emergency call, this is one option we may use. By talking to a qualified traffic attorney who is aware of the applicable laws and has the necessary experience defending these types of charges, you may be able to overcome your charges and emerge with lesser penalties.
Consult with a Kern County Attorney for Free Right Away
It is very important that you speak to a lawyer before you pay your ticket. Once you have paid the fine, it is considered as an admission of guilt and tacks on points to your driver's license record. Similarly, if you simply ignore the ticket and do not respond, you will also be found guilty, and may have face additional consequences.
If you choose to have our firm represent you, you can rest assured that we will approach your case aggressively, both in negotiations and in court. We work to save you both time and money, and would be happy to offer you a free consultation.
