If you have a Los Angeles traffic ticket in collections with GC Services, you may be wondering whether you should hire a GC Services lawyer to help you out.
Of course, for any matter, you could always choose to represent yourself. However, there are a few reasons you should consider hiring a lawyer to help you with your traffic citation in collections with GC Services.
You Can’t Trust What GC Services Tells You
GC Services is a collections agency that contracts with California courts to collect on unpaid traffic tickets. They have one job and only one job to do: get your money. Having an unpaid traffic ticket can be a confusing process, so many people mistakenly ask GC Services for advice. Bad idea.
GC Services will give you limited information, false information, and will flat out LIE TO YOU. For instance, they will tell you that you can’t see the judge anymore, and all you can do is pay them.
This is true maybe half of the time, but only in the case where you have a failure to pay, versus a failure to appear.
If you have a failure to appear, you can still see the judge, and it is better to do so!
In most cases, you don’t have to pay GC Services to get your license back (although they will tell you that you do). A GC Services lawyer can get your license back, usually without the requirement of you paying GC Services a cent. There are some nuances to the process, and depending on your goals (e.g. how soon you need your license, what the traffic ticket charges specifically were, etc.), there are a few different paths you can take.
