Got underage speeding ticket in Bakersfield. I didn't know what to do and I found out about Mr. Blythe from his partner attorney Matthew Ruff. He represented and handled my case professionally and I did not have to do anything. Two months later he emailed me that my ticket has been dismissed and that's all! Highly recommend

I would highly recommend staying away from this attorney. I hired this attorney to represent me in a traffic violation. After paying this attorney in excess of $750.00 he had waited a month then called me and told me because of a new policy in the Mojave Court there was not a lot he could do. He suggested I plea guilty or we could take my chances in court and see what happens. I chose to take my chances in court and plea NOT Guilty. After agreeing with the plan to plea Not guilty, Mr Blythe ignored my wishes and proceeded to plea no contest without my consent. This resulted in me having to pay extra to hire a second attorney. Mr. Blythe also ignored many of my phone calls and refused to respond to emails. Once paid the initial fee, his communication skills were non-existent. If your case is of any importance to you I would suggest another attorney. I would not expect a guaranteed results but I do expect someone to follow through on what was agreed upon. Hope this helps! good luck.

Bruce Blythe defines excellence in knowledge of the law. His experience, expertise within the judicial system, and his relationship with clients as well as colleagues allowed him to take a case, where the odds were definately against me, all the way to acquittal. He was able to save my Class A Driver's License, which allowed me to keep my position at my job.
In my deelings with Bruce Blythe he was honest and straight forward with my options, possible decisions, and outcomes. His guidance and hard work is greatly appreaciated and highly recommended. Thank you, Bruce.

I got a speeding ticket in Kern county and called Bruce based on his reviews. I filled a form, signed it, scanned it and sent it via e-mail to Bruce. In a week Bruce called me with a great news: case dismissed! No other interactions or explanations were needed..

A true defender for the professional driver Professional drivers need professional representation in all citations. Attorneys Bruce M. Blythe and Matthew J. Ruff are truly the finest representatives for the professional driver. These two have successfully represented me on three occasions. They are a genuinely dynamic law firm that has been responsive, informative and successful in my defense. They have earned my respect and admiration for their representation in these cases. Bruce Blythe is an attorney worthy of this praise by his words and his deeds. Along with Matthew J. Ruff they represent their clients with a zeal that brings positive results. They care and it shows in everything they do for their clients. Thank you Bruce and Matthew for a job well done.

Everybody makes mistake at least once in life. I was so scared and lost when I was facing the criminal charge two years ago. That is the coldest winter I ever experienced. Mr. Bruce Blythe helped me go through the hardship and fixed my problem so that I could move on my life in a better way. I can't thank him enough. He is highly skilled professional lawyer, and I am so lucky to have him to represent me in court.

Anyone with a traffic infraction who can afford a good lawyer would be a *fool* not to hire Mr. Blythe and his partner Mr. Huff.
I was such a person a few months ago, living in Los Angeles, with a ticket in Kern County. I called and they picked up right away (not a no brainer if you're looking for a good lawyer!), referred me to their website which had detailed, clear and easily understandable info. The partners are also affordable - I had been referred to someone else on the web who charges at least twice as much for the same service.
Last, but most essentially, Messrs. Blythe & Huff get results. My case was dismissed! I cannot recommend these guys enough: business-like, professional, results-oriented.

I live in Bay Area (California). During my vacation to Las Vegas, I got this speeding ticket. I was required to show in court personally. Due to my busy schedule and the long distance from the court to my home, I decided to hire a lawyer to handle this issue.
I am lucky to find Bruce's to represent me in the court. He handles my case professionally and quickly. Their charge is very fair. Now my case is dismissed. I really appreciate their service.

"i hired Bruce for a DUI case in Bakersfield. Being in the military it was difficult to find someone local who really cared and knew the importance of my case. Mr. Blythe was always available to discuss the case and fought with the county to get my drunk driving charge dropped even though my alcohol level was way above the legal limit. He saved my carreer and my life, to say thanks is not enough!

After reviewing my trial results, I was relieved and elated at the same time. As I assume it must be with most of your clients, it was a huge relief to receive word of the positive outcome of my trial, as it were, and to have that burden lifted. I, more than most though, have a profound sense of humility and indebtedness to you and your firm, as I realize the value and real worth of your services.
In this jaded world we live in, where it is all too easy to believe the system is set up only to suck us dry of all our hopes and dreams. Where only the tough survive and the weak are crushed and discarded, it is humbling to know that some in the system... the Bruce Blythe's of the system... can and will work within this system to provide a way out of the judicial system WITHOUT being crushed and discarded.
If you or your colleagues ever feel 'what am I doing this for', rest assured that there are a few of us out here that may need your skills, patience, and willingness to represent us in the system, and help us survive the crushing weight of the bureaucracy and and the burdensome, hopelessly slow, faith destroying wheels of our judicial system.
