Zealous Advocate for You!   We are not a traffic mill, we are a defense firm.  We consult with our clients personnally and review every ticket for the best possible outcome.  Contact us directly at.

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,.  My staff and are here to defend you!   Check out my Reviews!

No other traffic attorney i would use.
I have used Linda for all my traffic violations (close to 10) for the better part of a decade. She has delivered nothing but outstanding results for each and every case I've brought to her or referred to her. 10/10 recommend.

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

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.

I hired Linda to help me with a traffic violation that would suspend my license. She went above and beyond to get the charges dismissed. I would absolutely recommend Linda to anyone with major traffic violations. Very professional, A+

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.
