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 attorneys Matt Ruff and
Alex Griggs are local and know 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.

violations in the Mojave Court. Whether the citation be for reckless
driving, basic speed law or just driving faster than the sign allows, we

School is generally not allowed if the speed exceeds 20 mph or if the

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

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
