Mojave Speeding Ticket Attorneys 661-243-1084
Mojave Court is well known statewide as being very heavy handed on speeding tickets
both from commercial and non-commercial drivers. The CHP officers that patrol the
lonely stretches of highway surrounding the Courthouse are very "plugged in" to the
judicial system and therefore can make it very difficult to win a case unless you have an
equalizer on your side. Mojave attorney Ruff and his associate Alex Griggs is local and
knows the Judges, the DA, the clerks and all Court staff better than anyone and can help
level the playing field for his clients fighting a ticket in this Court.

Recent Case Result
Our Firm was hired by a client living in West Los Angeles who was caught speeding over
100mph through the Mojave area while on business. The CHP wrote her for driving 107
in a 65 zone (Violation VC22348b). We went to Court for her and set the case for trial,
we were able to avoid the posting of bail. At trial our Attorney Alex Griggs brought a
motion to dismiss which was granted by the Judge, ALL CHARGES DISMISSED!
We charge affordable flat fees for the defense of most tickets and our representation
includes handling the case from start to finish, including a trial, if necessary to achieve
the best result. We are NOT the cheapest attorneys in town! Our fees start at $750 for
most tickets. The case process takes anywhere from 30 to 90 days from the time we get
into Court at the arraignment and set the case for trial. We go to Court for you on most
cases, we actually appear in Court on most cases while many cheaper web based ticket
mills simply file a written declaration.
Mojave CA Attorney Matthew Ruff and Alex Griggs handle all speeding violations in the
Mojave Court. Whether the citation be for reckless driving, basic speed law or just driving
faster than the sign allows, we can defend you. The most common offenses that come
before the Judge are 100 mile per hour violations, Commercial Truck tickets, reckless
driving, DUI and driving on suspended license tickets. Traffic School is generally not
allowed if the speed exceeds 20 mph or if the driver holds a commercial license. However,
a Mojave Speeding Ticket Attorney can often negotiate a favorable disposition or
dismissal of the original charge by going to Court and negotiating with the Judge, D.A. or
officer issuing the ticket. The majority of the ticket cases we fight are for commercial
drivers facing the negative prospect of having too many points on their driving record or
CDL, however we also represent non-commercial speeding ticket cases in the mojave
We extend a great deal of courtesy to professional drivers who keep our country mving
and offer heavily discounted fees to defend them against oppressive citations handed out
by overly aggressive law enforcement concerned only with quotas and revenue
generation for the state of California.
Our win rate on cases of speeding in excess of 100mph is unmatched. We enjoy a
success rate of well over 90 percent for speeding tickets for truck drivers and those
charged with driving over 100 miles per hour (VC22348b). In fact, our Mojave Speeding
Ticket Attorneys enjoy one of the highest dismissal rates among all lawyers in Kern
County. A classic example of the 100 plus speeding tickets he has one is where the
client was driving through the desert in a Ferrari heading to Las Vegas, the client was
driving at a speed above 115 mph. The attorney took the case to trial and one, the
charges were all dismissed.
In addition to the aggravated speed offenses such as VC22348b, our speeding ticket law
firm in Mojave tackles all commercial truck driving violations, downhill truck speed and
enjoy quite possibly the highest success rate for dismissal of nearly 95%. We
understand that having a conviction on your record for speeding could mean the loss of
your job if you drive a truck for a living. Alex defends more truck driver tickets than any
other in the Mojave Court.
How To Avoid a Speeding Ticket (In some Cases)
It's a scary feeling, lights, sirens, your heart is thumping, sometimes you know what you
did, sometimes you don't. Here is what to do to try and avoid being issued a ticket:
First, have everything ready, your registration, license, insurance card. Second, pull
over to a safe place, follow the officer's instructions if given and avoid stopping in a
location that is dangerous. DO NOT start searching your glove box or console. This
makes cops nervous and think you may be reaching for a weapon. Turn your car and
radio off. Roll down all your windows and leave your seatbelt on. Leave both hands on
the wheel, high at the center so the officer can see them. The officer will usually
approach on the right side if the stop took place on the freeway. Now the pivotal moment,
this may determine whether you are given a warning or a citation. Let the cop speak
first. DO NOT ask why he pulled you over, they will tell you. Next, apologize. Yes,
apologize for whatever the officer alleges you did. Be nice, your good attitude goes a
long way and may get you out of a ticket. If you are issued a citation call us, if you
weren't a jerk the cop may not show up, if he or she does they will be more likely to agree
to a dismissal or reduction of the violation.
