  2. Speeding and traffic ticket
    Unfortunately, traffic defense is not a practice area taught in law school. A lot of the knowledge of Sacramento traffic ticket defenses, strategies and tactics are developed by years of experience and passed on from other traffic attorneys. I have been employed, worked as “of counsel” and been contracted to appear by several different traffic attorneys.

Great attorney and always available to talk.
Hyatt Legal Plan referred to David for 2 traffic issues that I had to deal with. David took care of everything via Email and by phone. Got my fine reduced and my DMV hold released. Everything was fast and easy. David was great and took care of both cases in San Joaquin and Sacramento county without a issue. David explained all my options and the best route to take to resolve my citations. Would recommend his service and advice. He explains things in great details and the pros and cons of everything that would happen.

David was GREAT, Highly Recommend
David is AMAZING ! This was my first experience with fighting a traffic ticket. I was on a very long drive back from So Cal and in a hurry to get home to see my kids and I let myself speed up a bit toward the end of my drive (in a rental car). Unfortunately, that's all it took for me to get a speeding ticket (a big one). I was going to have my license suspended for 30 days. My insurance was going to go through the roof (even though I have no prior tickets or accidents). Not to mention the $1000 ticket fine (which I was ready to pay because ultimately it was really stupid of me to speed). I found David online and he jumped on it right away. He was very tactical and worked on several ways to fight the ticket including delaying the traffic hearing. Well by the time he went to court for me, the officer was not able to show up and the case was completely dismissed. Had the officer shown up, I believe that David would still have been able to work out a deal that would have been better than what I was facing. I completely recommend David and his services if you are in need of a great attorney.

Gets the job done
Got a DUI and enhancement for speeding. Thought I was going to spend jail time and lose my job. David really pulled through on my case and was able to reduce my DUI to a Wet Reckless. I will definitely keep David as my attorney. He also communicates well, any info he gets on the case he will immediately give you a call or email. Glad I picked him as my attorney.

Nice guy, great lawyer.
David communicated frequently with me over the course of a 14 month process to dispute a minor traffic ticket in Solano County, CA. I won my case with David's counsel. Would recommend David's services to anyone in Sacramento & Solano Area.

Excellant Service
I contacted attorney Barzaga the day after I learned from my auto insurance carrier that my license had been suspended for failing to respond to a red light camera citation in Sacramento. I had visited Sacramento a year earlier driving a rental car and never received notice of the violation. Being an attorney myself and residing in San Diego I knew I needed local representation to straighten the matter out. I contacted Mr Barzaga and explained the matter and he immediately went on the Sacramento Court web site and located my citation and Failure to Appear violation. He explained my options and that same day appeared at court and represented my situation. He successfully had the Failure to Appear violation fine removed and dismissed, and I was granted the right to attend traffic school to avoid the 2 point red light infraction on my DMV record. Most importantly, my license was reinstated, and all in one day. As an attorney and a client I highly recommend David Aberion Barzaga

David Barzaga is a fantastic lawyer!
David Barzaga will go the extra mile for you and do his best to win. He helped me fight a speeding ticket that would've added a point to my driving record. He kept me up-to-date with emails and was always a phone call or text message away if I needed something. From the initial phone consultation, I knew that Mr. Barzaga was sympathetic to my plight and acknowledged that fighting moving violations in the strict Sacramento Traffic Court system was not guaranteed a win. Regardless, he was willing to take my case that involved possibly long wait-times to see the judge, and multiple return visits to the court if the court date was extended. I did not need to present at any of the court dates, but Mr. Barzaga was there representing me and saved me a lot of time from driving to & from the Bay Area AND being the person waiting at the court house to be seen by the judge. Mr. Barzaga is quite familiar with the attitudes and behaviors of the Sacrament Court judges, and is willing to strike down an unreasonable judge so that another (hopefully more lenient) judge will see the case. Mr. Barzaga was successful in pleading my case and winning because he has a stash of legal tactics he'll use in court when necessary. You are in good hands with David Barzaga. He will make you a priority.

A real good person
I live in Alabama I had an old traffic ticket that was a warrant and required me to come back to California. I hired David and he went to court for me the next day and got it reduced to and infraction instead of jail,work project and a misdemeanor. He is a fast hard worker and you can trust him....

David really knew the law and was straight forward with me in what to expect. He always gave me worst and best case scenario and where I stood. He provided everything promised and more. Was really very pleased with him and will use him in the future :)

Excellent traffic attorney
I hired David to represent me for my excess of 100mph speeding ticket. He guided me through the whole process, kept me informed throughout, and did all the things which he believes would increase my chance of winning my case. The officer did not show up and I won my case! Thanks David!

You couldn't hire a better attorney
Unfortunately, our son has had his fair share of tickets. While we certainly do not advocate going through life without consequences, we did not want our son to lose his drivers license. He has been going through a difficult time and had even dropped out of college. After talking with Mr Barzaga, he consoled us by explaining he'd had other clients who went through the same depressive phase. He was a great comfort to us saying good people make poor choices and he was confident that our son would learn from this experience. The second thing that Mr. Barzaga did that was of great comfort was keep in constant communication through emails and even texts; especially since we live 650 miles away. His fees are very reasonable and best of all he won our son's case. Since his speeding ticket was for 98 mph, our son would have not only had a very large fine, but I'm sure he would have lost his license considering his driving record. Because of Mr Barzaga's expertise, he was confident that both the helicopter pilot and chp would not show for the hearing. His experience proved right; neither officer showed and the case was dismissed. We can not thank Mr Barzaga enough for representing our son and for helping us through this experience.

He's The One You Need To Hire!!!
I hired Mr.Barzaga to represent me in Sacramento Traffic court. The worst of all traffic courts! No love is given in that courthouse. I had a 100mph plus speeding ticket on my motorcycle. The airplane chp got me on that one. Theres no getting out of that ticket. I even had a prior consultation with a diffrent law firm that recommended i just plead guilty. Take the $2200 dollar fine and 30 day suspension from the dmv. I just couldnt do it. Mr Barzaga advised me that I had no choice but to fight the ticket. Given the punishment and the fact that Id lose my job if i lost my license. Well, I was still found guilty. I expected that much. But I was only fined $1750 instead of $2200. Best of all David fought for my license and i received no suspension.. Talk about miracles... Thank You Mr.B.!!!! Your The Man!!!!

Get's the job done.
We hired David a month and a half ago and he was very good at communicating his concerns and decisions. He was able to get our violation dismissed and that was awesome. We would definitely use him again in the future.

Glad I have David on my Team!!
David B helped me out in my legal situation in a professional, and respectable manner. He seemed to care about my situation and I felt well taken care of while he was going to court for me. He was as excited as I was when he told me about the victory he achieved for me in court. I recommend him to anyone looking for not only a good lawyer, but a good person to represent them in court. Thanks David.... I hope I wont need you services anytime soon, lol... but if I do I would even consider calling anyone else.

My traffic attorney
I had a couple of outstanding warrants in Yolo and Sacramento County for driving on suspended license because I have to drive to work to support my family and with David's knowledge he was able to reduce the punishment and get me in a Driving School Program for People with Suspended License issues.

The best Attorney for the best results possible
This lawyer was attentive to our issues, knowledgeable of our circumstances and provided good advice for a complicated set of tickets. Pick this guy if you want the best results. He is our go to lawyer from now on.

Courteous, professional, gets the job done right
David helped me with an expungement of an old misdemeanor. I hadn't known him before hiring his services several months ago. I am very pleased with the experience. He took care of everything in a manner that showed he was experienced and capable. I never had to call him to move things forward or to see what he was doing with my case. He got the case expunged, followed up with court documents, and really came through with everything. He also was responsive to emails and calls in a very timely manner. I recommend him without reservation. David is a pro.
