    You will be in front of a traffic commisioner in Santa Clara County and an alternative resolution of your case, although not guaranteed, is likely--so that you wind up with no record. You probably won't be able to do this on your own, and should have representation. We are local, since we are located in Santa Clara County. John Cahners

    All attorneys recommending you have an attorney are correct. You only get one chance at preventing a lifetime of explaining your record (if you even get the chance to explain, after it is determined that you have a record). We are in Palo Alto, have represented a lot of Stanford students and are pretty familiar with the Palo Alto DA's and judges. No one can promise results, but you would be foolish not to have expert help.
