Even charges like unknowingly driving an uninsured vehicle could result in exorbitant fines and DMV fees.
We understand how the hustle and bustle of everyday life can cause you to forget about things like renewing your driver’s license, paying for your registration, taking your car through emissions, or sending in payments for tickets.
In many cases, the failure to do any of the above things will result in fines that are subject to be increased every couple of weeks until paid. The DMV can then suspend your driver’s license and the registration of your car. It could even effect you in the long run by raising your insurance premiums, or making it difficult to get coverage at all.
The good news is, our Los Angeles traffic violation lawyer will attend DMV hearings and/or court hearings to aggressively defend you. Oftentimes, showing up with a valid license or proof of current car insurance will result in your case being dismissed.

CDL drivers face harsher penalties than the average motorist? Since they spend most of their time on the road, they are more vulnerable to traffic “slip-ups”. CDL drivers also earn their pay by getting to their destinations on time, which puts added pressure on them on the road. They may be more prone to speeding, or driving while sleepy which causes swerving, slower reaction times and greater risk of accidents.
A CDL driver doesn’t just face heavy fines for their driving mistakes, they could face losing their license and ultimately, losing their careers.
