LA Courthouse Traffic Tickets

Getting a traffic ticket in Los Angeles County can cause you a lot of grief. California traffic tickets are extremely expensive, frustrating, and can be time consuming if you choose to fight them in court.

There are many Los Angeles county courthouses. If you are scheduled to report to an LA courthouse, you could be appearing in:

  • Metropolitan “Metro”
  • Chatsworth
  • Beverly Hills
  • Downey
  • Bellflower
  • West Covina
  • Pasadena

…and the list goes on. Many people who receive LA County traffic tickets don’t even live in the area, and often do not even reside in California.

LA Courthouse Failure to Appear


You may need a failure to appear attorney to help you fight your traffic ticket if you forgot about your ticket, lost it, or were unable to make it to court on your scheduled appearance date.

The reason for this is because once you fail to appear on a traffic ticket, you now have to deal with GC Services.

Dealing with GC Services in an LA Courthouse

GC Services will be after you to collect your money if you failed to appear on a traffic ticket in an LA Courthouse.

The problem with GC Services is that they don’t have your best interest in mind. Their one and only goal is to get you to pay them. To induce you to pay them, they’ll try to seduce you by telling you:

1) “If you pay us, we will clear your license”, or

2) “Just make a down payment and we will clear your license, then you can make payments on the rest.”

Why GC Services is Deceptive

There are a couple reasons why GC Services is deceptive. First, sometimes even when you do what they ask you to do (like make a down payment in order to get your license clear), they won’t always hold up their end of the bargain.

I’m an LA Courthouse traffic ticket attorney, and get several calls a week from people who have paid GC services, but GC Services hasn’t and won’t clear the hold on their license, even after repeatedly being requested to do so.

Also, if your traffic ticket is a moving violation, you’ll get a point on your DMV record if you pay them, no questions asked. This will raise your insurance rates.

Further, if you pay GC Services, you’ll get a VC 40508 misdemeanor failure to appear on your criminal record.

The benefits of hiring a knowledgeable traffic attorney are:

  • be ensured your license will get cleared by a reputable attorney;
  • keep points off of your DMV record;
  • keep the misdemeanor failure to appear charge off of your criminal record;
  • get your overall fines reduced, even after consider the fee it costs to hire me as your attorney.
