I suggest you use the AVVO "Find a Lawyer" tab or Google to find a traffic ticket attorney in the Los Angeles area. You will just have to call several and speak with them. Best of luck to you.
Mr. Hill, as usual, makes a good suggestion. Attorney Andrew Roberts is active on this site and handles traffic matters. You may want to call his office.

It sounds like you had the stop sign and the other lady did not. If that is so, you cannot make a left turn until all traffic clears and it is safe to do so. I think that in the officer's opinion it was not safe for you to make the left turn when you did, and that is why you were cited. You can contact attorneys to see what it would cost to have an attorney defend you at the ticket trial, and see if one will take your personal injury case.
