Los Angeles Traffic Attorney
Many traffic offenses can be prosecuted in criminal court. In fact, there is often a crossover between DUI and other traffic offenses. For example, the state may prosecute an individual for driving under the influence but also allege that the individual’s license was suspended at the time of the offense. This would constitute a separate criminal offense, wherein harsher penalties may apply.
It is rarely acceptable to plead guilty outright to a traffic offense. Courts and prosecutors are often amenable to offering significantly reduced sentences upon proof of some fact, i.e. a valid driver’s license. There are also many legal defenses to traffic allegations.
Drawing upon the relationships he has formed with both judges and prosecutors, Mr. Sterling has been successful in reaching extremely favorable results for his clients in this area. Investigation may reveal that certain allegations were filed in error, oftentimes because the DMV has provided the court with inaccurate or incorrect information.
