Posted by John, a Speeding Ticket client, Flag
Went to him with an unfair speeding ticket, the cop says he clocked me going past reference lines that were not even on the road, I had pics to prove it. Garvey says that he would help me fight it but at the last minute in front of the judge, he totally changed what we originally talked about and said that I agreed to plea bargain, says he already worked it out with the cop. I was not aware nor did I consent to any such agreement to do so. Garvey would not let me talk in front of the judge, in fact he got mad when I tried to show my pics and made a BS remark in front of the judge about why my pictures were invalid, it seemed like he was either afraid to go against the cop or he was friends with the cop because he went out of his way to not help me prove that I was right. I don't care that I got the points dropped, it was a matter of principle because I wasn't speeding and I still had to pay the full amount of the fine + his fees. I could have done better on my own. I learned my lesson because the next time I got a speeding ticket I did in fact fight it on my own and got the fine totally dropped.
