Joe W... your best chance in court
Best money I ever spent!!! I was looking at over 2 thousand dollars in fines, 30 day license suspension and 2 points on my driving record. Now I'm looking at the future with everything behind me. No fines, No suspension and No points on my record. Like I said " BEST MONEY I EVER SPENT!!!!"

Construction zone
Highly recommend joe I’m a Class A driver, for those who might know there’s been construction on olive Dr and 99 freeway. One day they had everyone going to the left lane the next to the right after that they open up both there was no sign and I took left lane on 3 day I got a ticket. Showed up for court 15 min late do to grapevine closed well officer didn’t show up either but the judge still h dig down the ticket with the point. My brother referred me to joe he open up the case again and guess what Gt it dismissed no point no insurance increase and no fees. Straight dismissal. Thank you joe I haven’t Got a ticket or a point since 2012 and im thankful because of joe my driving record it’s still clean.
