Couldn't ask for a better outcome ...
After I got my first speeding ticket in many years (California VC 22350, Speeding 60 MPH in 50 zone), I posted a question about my specific situation on AVVO. Scott was one of the first and few to respond to my question and offered his services. I spoke with him on the phone the next day and after reviewing the circumstances of my case, he explained to me in detail exactly what needed to be done and it made perfect sense. Scott is very friendly and easy to talk to. He took his time to explain the process and answer my questions. He seemed very knowledgeable about traffic law. While he didn't guarantee the outcome, he indicated that I had a good case and a favorable outcome was likely. He also presented a follow-up plan if the initial process didn't produce the desired outcome. But we never actually got to that point. I immediately signed up with him. He filed the necessary paperwork and appeared in court on my behalf and eventually had the case dismissed. He kept me in the loop while the case was in progress and promptly responded to all my subsequent email queries within a day. Overall a very positive and excellent customer service experience and obviously, the most favorable outcome one could expect. Scott's fee was very reasonable and was even lower than the cost of the fine plus traffic school if I were to go that route. Having Scott represent me saved me the hassle and aggravation of having to show up to court and be talked down to by a condescending judge. I've had to make court appearances for traffic violations in the past and I'm happy to skip the experience and spend my time more productively. It was great to have Scott on my side representing my case. If you get a traffic citation and live in Southern California, contact Scott. You have nothing to lose and a lot to gain. The initial consultation is free. The fee is very reasonable for the services provided and the customer service experience is excellent. Obviously, each case is different and others' outcomes may vary. But even if you don't get your case dismissed, often times traffic attorneys are able to negotiate a reduction in fine, or change from a moving violation to a non-moving violation. Walking into a courtroom on your own is like walking into a lion's den. The average person doesn't stand a chance. Call Scott and find out what your options are. He is very straight forward and will let you know what's possible. I hope I won't get another citation any time soon. But if I do, my first call would be to Scott. Highly recommended.

Simply Outstanding!
I have used Scott's legal services twice for traffic tickets. I must say he has more than impressed me with his professionalism from day one. His services are quite affordable and after my first consultation, he kept me up to date via email on all the developments from initial hearing to trial date and eventually did his magic because my case was dismissed!! He has a keen eye on feedback and all my questions were promptly handled.I am more than grateful and would recommend anyone who wants to save money and avoid a point on their record.

Today and just an hour ago informed that we had granted a DISSMISSAL court charge for a speed ticket (65mph) given on fall /14 as of my son going to his school on a road of 50 MPH . We tried to push court dates to save some cash as ( dad got laid off) . We unexpectedly scheduled unexpectedly for a Court day one month ahead from the day set already ext month !!! It just happened that Mr .Scott informed one day only before and when he appeared in our behalf ,the officer did not show up !!! LUCKY HA ? !! So case Dissmissed Having said so ,with no doubt in mind and inside we acknowledge Mr.Scott to fight back&forth for us and Let us know every step of the way (call /emails) and was honest from the beginig about the success rate But we had that feelings in gut so why not try ? However , one should admits that all speed signs set there for us all to stay safe and enjoy life longer and be THANKFULL to this machine granted to is so NOT abusing it in any way ,right ? ((Whisper ; BE ULTIMATELY GOOD TO PARENTS AND GRANDPARENTS . They are behind the blessings that moves with generations , BELIVE IT ))

Able to leap tall buildings with a single bound ...
I was cited in Orange by a LIDAR-toting CHP motor officer for exceeding 65 mph in the car-pool lane on the southbound 55. (Don't know what LIDAR is? You should Google it because it's here now and it's bad news!) Supposedly an unbeatable ticket, so I tried for traffic school since it had been 584 days since my last 1-point violation had been forgiven. Court said OK, DMV said no way. I was two days short of DMV's requirement for "more than 18 months between citations", regardless of what the court said. Scott was able to withdraw my "do-it-yourself" guilty plea, obtain a dismissal of the charge, and secure return of bail. Don't know how he did what he did, but needless to say I am one happy camper who is looking forward to keeping his insurance premiums at the lowest level possible. It pays to hire an expert because in the long run it is far more efficient and cost effective. In cases like this, Scott is THE MAN. He is thorough, professional, honest and lives up to his commitments. Scott Ball has my highest recommendation, without reservation.

Unbelievable but true
Scott.. I have no words to say Thank you. I'm father with 2 kids, couldn't afford the ticket and insurance increase, 1st I'm thankful to yelp for showing me that you are top rated but you indeed showed me that yelp is right. You kept me informed and most importantly got me off the ticket. Caps lock on (THANKYOU)

Red light camera ticket
I couldn't be more pleased with Scott's performance helping me beat a red light camera ticket I received in Santa Ana. Not having retained an attorney for a moving violation, I had low expectations going in with the low flat rate, but was very pleased to find that some real creative legal work was done on my behalf. Reachable every time I called. Received regular progress email updates. Cool guy. Thumbs up!

Great customer service
Had an outstanding ticket, Scott was very helpful in explaining the process and what to expect. Constantly provided updates and the eventual good news. I highly recommend, will not be disappointed.

I received a red light violation ticket. I contacted Mr. Ball and asked him for his honest opinion about my case and my next steps. He promptly replied back suggesting that my case is not strong enough and there are high chances for conviction. I respect Mr. Ball for his honest opinion. Hopefully, I do not get any more tickets in future, but if I get one then I will definitely ask Mr. Ball for help.

The Best!
Simply the best of the best. Very personable, very professional, and very knowledgeable. I would recommend Mr. Ball to anyone who needs his services. He made a very unpleasant situation stress free and easy. I can not thank him enough.

Money Saver!
Mr. Ball helped me successfully win my case on a red light traffic camera ticket in Orange County. I was in a company vehicle as well. I thought I was going to lose my job and have to pay fines and traffic school. Well worth the cost and saved my money and my job.

Homerun star batter 1st shot bullseye slam dunk
Only had days until my redlight traffic camera ticket was due. Scott answered after 5PM on a Friday and patiently heard my case before offering a plan. After reviewing other options he was by the far the most compelling and reasonable so I hired him. CASE DISMISSED, NO POINTS, NO FINE. I wish he could have handled my mortage mod!

Got my wife's red light camera ticket dismissed!
My wife got a red light camera ticket for almost $500 in Orange County and Scott did exactly what he said he would do. He kepy her informed by phone and email and she never had to appear. Case was dismissed.

Didn't treat me like a criminal and fought for my rights
Mr. Ball successfully represented me in the Pasadena courts when I was charged with public intoxication and was facing a potential charge of resisting arrest. He walked me though the legal process and made me feel at ease by explaining my rights. I have prior convictions and was facing jail time for this offense. Mr. Ball negotiated my sentence down to a small fine and community service. I believe It's hard to get a fair trial because public defenders simply wont fight for you, they assume you're guilty. If you're charged with a crime you MUST higher a private attorney. I HIGHLY recommend Mr. Ball.

I hired him once for a traffic ticket I got in my mother's car which he got dismissed but for other reasons I'd rather not go into too much detail, I wouldn't hire him again. He is a good lawyer but I'm afraid that's it.

Not there for a current client in a time of need
Scott lost a case for me a year ago, as a favor, he offered to rep me for ticket I get in the future, at no cost. I called him the day before court for a speeding ticket, a court he would be in anyways. At first he said he would help me, then changed his mind, saying the outcome would most likely be bad so he has the choice to not accept the case. It felt like since he wouldn’t be making money, and it was difficult, I was not important. To me this is like a doctor saying there’s a chance you could die, so I’m not going to attempt to save you. Everyone needs all the help they can get during these times. Shame on you.
