A few years ago, I got pulled over by CHP on freeway -- wish it was Eric Estrada but no luck : (
I Forgot about ticket and the the DMV suspended my license. I couldn’t get my license until I took care of that ticket…ugh!!!! Didn’t want to go to court, not sure what to do.
Luckily I found David Dastrup who talked me off the ledge. We talked on the phone a couple times about everything that needed to be done to get my license back. He explained how the DMV works and how to take care of my ticket and then take care of the DMV problem.
I’d rather go to the dentist than go to the DMV. Not sure if I’d rather go to the dentist than go to court because I never had to go to court or leave home to take care of my ticket since David went to court for me. Turns out I had a kind of warrant but David got that cleared up, too. He explained how the court tells the DMV to stick it to me, okay, David never said that but you get the idea. I did go DMV to get my license back after he got my ticket dismissed!!!! He explained that means no DMV points!!!
Wonderful to finally have my license back. Grateful to have an attorney who helped me out and took care of everything. Thanks David!

On Friday I desperately needed the advice of an attorney because I have a suspended license due to two non-moving violations and the new procedures at the courts make it really difficult to a) understand what I can do to fix them b) to actually get it done. I am expecting a prospective job to review my driving record and I need to get it back out of suspension ASAP so that I can get the job. Naturally I thought I will need to hire a lawyer and throw some money at it.
First of all, I contacted 3 attorneys and David is the only one who called me back. He spent a lot of time explaining to me what is going on and what my options are. He explained recent changes at the courts and what my options were. In my case, there was not a lot he could do because my tickets are old but he walked me through all the scenarios for getting done what I can do myself and how it will go.
Some people never have to hire lawyers. Unfortunately for me I have had to hire them in my life for things other than traffic and I will tell you there are not a lot of attorneys that will spend 30 minutes on the phone with you if there is not a job for them in it. Speaking with him on the phone this long gave me insight into his professional acumen as a law professional but also as a professional I would trust in the future. :)

Fantastic to have my stop sign ticket dismissed. David handled it all. Called me same day it was dismissed. $249 for his services. Very nice person to deal with, a very frustrating thing made a bit nicer because he did right by me. He took my questions (and then some I didn't even know I had) and called right away when the case was dismissed. He told me about how he talked to the judge and the police. He must deal with them in the same likeable way as he talked to me. His friendly demeanor probably goes along way. (I don't think I could have gone to the trial without out getting all shook up about it. I stopped and shouldn't have been given a ticket. Glad he went to court for me. Well, I am peaceful normally, but getting a ticket you didn't do is frustrating.)
This wasn't the only ticket I got, but the other one was just a parking ticket and he took the time to explain to me about it, for free. Nice. My friend's attorney told me about Law office of David Dastrup, saying David is smart and knows his stuff.
