Voted Top 10 Traffic Attorney by AVVO since 2010.  My Peers consider me one of the Best Traffic Attorneys in So. Cal.   We offer a 15 min. free telephonic consultation.

Local Newport Beach attorney who knows the ins and outs of the Vehicle Code and knows how to use the Evidence Code to your best advantage!  

It used to be if you got a ticket it wasn't a big deal, not so much any more.  Pleading guilty to a traffic infraction can have serious consequences on your license and insurance even if it isn't a point.    The penalty assessments attached to the fines are outrageous and one ticket for the wrong violation on your record can cause substantial financial damage, loss of license, jail time and in some cases cost you your job.   Don't let that happen to you. 

Commercial drivers need zealous professional representation by a well versed, well respected traffic ticket attorney, so please call me for your free consultation.  

I fight traffic tickets for a living, not because I want bad drivers on the road, but because I believe in the Constitution and hate to see people plead guilty to save a few bucks which allows our government to take advantage of the drivers of this state by operating the traffic court as a cash register.   I founded the California Traffic Defense Bar Association (CTDBA) a statewide traffic defense bar association for attorneys across the state who focus on traffic defense.  We fight for a united voice for all the drivers in the State not just those who get tickets.

 If you get a ticket, give me a call, (949)729-3171.  My staff and are here to defend you!   Check out my Reviews!

Outstanding Professional Service
Linda helped me with my speeding ticket. As I was looking for attorneys to help represent me I spoke with Linda, and right away I knew she was who I wanted representing me. She was extremely knowledgeable, straightforward, genuine, reliable, and overall excellent. She was confident in what she was doing and the results showed because she greatly reduced my violation. I am so grateful to have had her as my attorney. Thanks again Linda!

Wow
I had gotten a +101 mph ticket in Mono County. Bottom Line - It was all my fault and I deserved the ticket. I had spoken to several other companies and was quite discouraged - They were all pay first then we will see what we can do. Finally a friend suggested I call Linda. She called me within 15 mins, made no promises but was confident she could help. Linda and her staff were very professional & responsive. My case took a few months but I couldn't have expected a better outcome. I highly recommend Linda Iannelli! I greatly appreciate the attention, effort, & time everyone spent to resolve my case.

Great Experience Working With Linda!!!
I was very pleased with the service I received from Linda Lannelli for a traffic citation, VC2210 (d). I have a commercial driver’s license and wanted to keep the citation from affecting my driving record. Linda was successful in keeping the citation off my record and after going through process I realized that there is no way that I could have accomplished this without Linda’s assistance. Linda was very personable and great to work with. On the day of my court appearance she was well prepared and her knowledge of traffic laws and court procedures is what made the difference. I would recommend Linda even if I had lost my case because she did her job well and there are no guarantees when you go to court.

Reckless Driving Analyst, Evaluator, Hole finder, Master Defender and Winner
I am not a big writer but my son was charged with a reckelss driving ticket just because he argued with Irvine Police officer who pulled him over. We had heard about Linda from a friend whose case was won by her and we took our case to her. She listened to us, analyzed the case, found cracks in the case and prepared a 12 page report that when I read it, I was confident that she was going to win it. Sure enough, the case was dropped by the DA and my son was happy to have his case dismissed. Of course my son learned his lesson by having to pay for the case himself. I would CERTAINLY recommend her.

Outstanding Lawyer
Once again, Linda has come to my rescue. Earlier this year I was issued a speeding ticket from Anaheim Police Department (doing 65 in a 35.) I was worried that my insurance was going to go through the roof due to this violation. I contacted Linda, sent her my citation and I didn’t think twice about it. Linda kept me informed every step of the way - when she got court appearance extensions, when she was attending my arraignment and when she attended my trial. Of course, she was able to get my case DISMISSED!! LINDA IANNELLI IS THE ONLY WAY TO GO!!!!! Carol I. Crazy driver

Total Professional
Had a consultation with Linda and she could not have been more personable. Reaching out to a lawyer typically implies that one is going through something unpleasant, and Linda nearly negated the unpleasantness entirely. Her words of advice were clear and pragmatic. Hoping I don't have to find a lawyer anytime soon, but I'll remember her if/when the time comes.

Knowledgeable, Professional, Fair and Reliable
I hired Linda to appeal a traffic ticket I had received while visiting from out of state. I was concerned as I chose Linda based only on positive on-line reviews as I am not a resident of California. When I called her, she gave me valuable information and I felt that she was honest about my case and the probability of a positive decision. As the date of the trial came closer, she followed up and prepared. The case was eventually dismissed but, in my experience with Linda and her office, I would highly recommend her to anyone who could use her services. I greatly value her integrity and her professionalism and her prices are reasonable.

Traffic Ticket Expert
One of my trucks was given a 3 count ticket in Santa Monica. By his conversation I don't think the inspection technician had a practical understanding of what constitutes a safe truck. Anyway, Linda went to bat for me twice in Santa Monica and apparently dazzled the court into turning a $1400.00 ticket into $222.00. This is the second time I've hired Linda and very pleased both times. She is and will remain my one and only attorney.

Highly appreciated
My son got a ticket the 55 freeway 5 O'Clock in the morning on his 1990 civic. The police officer on the ticket that he was going 90+. I wasn't buy that. I really think the police officer wanted to take advantage of this. So I was searching around for a traffic attorney who can really help me with this case. I found Linda Ianelle who got lots of experience fighting this injustice case and got perfect reviews so I gave her a call. I expressed my situation and Linda calmly explained that something she could help. She also explained that there's no guarantee but she'll do her best to get a dismissed. The fee was very reasonable and my son don't have to be in court and missing school. Linda was hired. I was informed every step of the process. Linda got my son's case dismiss in just a few weeks. Many thanks to you and your team Linda. You're a lifesaver
