Perhaps the most common cases we handle in Mojave Court are traffic matters
involving excessive speed, reckless driving, DUI, drunk driving and driving on a
suspended license. Not many people know it but these cases can be beat using
legally recognized defenses and showing mistakes in police work and the insufficiency
of the evidence.
We are very experienced in handing cases in the Mojave Court. Over the past decade
our firm has successfully defended persons charged with crimes in the Mojave
Superior Court. The Court is part of the east Kern County Branch Court and serves
the cities of China Lake Naval Station Mojave, Edwards Air Force Base, California
City, Boron, Rosamond, Tehachapi, the Mojave Desert, Lake Isabella, Ridgecrest and
Cantil. The Mojave Court is comprised of two Courtrooms and is presided over by
one supervising Judge and two Court Commissioners. Many of the cases before the
Court are from CHP vehicle stops on Highway 58 or the 14 and involve persons simply
"passing through" on their way to Las Vegas, Lancaster, Bakersfield, Ridgecrest or
other parts of the Country.
We also handle arrests by the Kern County Sheriffs Department in one of the National
Parks or on Edwards AFB. In one recent case Matt represented a client arrested for
DUI while on her way to Las Vegas. She lived in Arizona and couldn't travel to Court
so Matt appeared for her and was able to negotiate a reduction of th charges that
didn't require California DUI classes and she never had to return to Court. Its cases
like this that we have been doing for over two decades.
