A traffic citation issues for things like parking in a red zone or not fully stopping at a stop sign are a pain, but they aren’t exactly legal crises. Our law firm has focused our efforts on the defense of drivers who are facing more dire circumstances, such as misdemeanor and felony charges related to a traffic violation. This direction has further increased our determination and efficiency, allowing us to best represent our clients.

Some common traffic offenses we can defend include:
  • Hit and run: Being involved in a traffic collision and leaving the scene before you can be positively identified by others, or before providing current insurance information.
  • Excessive speeding: Driving in excess of 100 miles per hour on any road or highway in California. If an accident is caused while driving at such a high speed, you could also be charged with attempted manslaughter.
  • Reckless driving: Any driving behavior that you should reasonably understand to put yourself and others in immediate danger, like weaving between lanes while speeding, street racing, or drifting around corners.
  • Driving without insurance: If you drive without current insurance coverage, you could be fined hundreds of dollars. Charges can escalate if you are also involved in a crash without insurance.
  • Driving with a suspended license: It is a misdemeanor at minimum for driving with an inactive or suspended license in California, resulting in jail time and fines if convicted.
  • Operating a vehicle while under the influence of a drug or alcohol: Driving under the influence (DUI) charges are one of the most common and most serious brought against drivers in Orange County and the rest of Southern California.


There is no such thing as an indefensible criminal charge or traffic offense. With the guidance and representation of our Orange County traffic offense attorney, you can challenge any misdemeanor or felony charge brought against you, no matter what evidence the prosecution claims to have gathered for its case. Given our extensive history and record of winning case results, we are confident we can help you secure an optimal outcome for your own case, be it a charge reduction, case dismissal, or acquittal.
