Traffic And Driver’s License Offenses

We see it day after day - people going to court without a lawyer because “it’s just a ticket.” Or, “I’ll just explain what happened to the Judge.” Without a lawyer, no one is there to advise you of the consequences of simply paying a ticket. And once you receive a letter from the Department of Driver Services giving you notice of your license suspension, it could be too late. You shouldn’t risk losing your ability to drive to work, school, child care, etc. by going to court to resolve your traffic citation without the experience and success of Kilgore & Rodriguez.

We’ve brought value to hundreds of clients who want to challenge traffic citations by getting charges reduced, getting equipment violations dismissed, getting license charges dismissed, getting speed reductions to avoid Super Speeder assessments, suspensions, and increased insurance premiums. Drivers under 21 in particular routinely receive a Notice of License Suspension from the Department of Driver Services merely by paying a citation by mail or online. Before you just pay a ticket without really knowing the consequences, consult the attorneys at Kilgore & Rodriguez.
