Generally speaking, a hit and run is defined as being involved in a car accident (either with a pedestrian, another car, or a fixed object) and then leaving the scene without stopping to identify yourself or render aid to anyone who might need assistance. Read more.

Speeding Tickets

At one time or another almost everyone who has ever been pulled over has tried to get out of a speeding ticket. They try to talk the officer out of the ticket there at the scene or by going to court and hoping to get it dismissed. Getting a ticket dismissed is not as common as it could be if people knew how to properly go about getting out of a speeding ticket. Read more.

5 star rating Ken is the best choice in SB if you need representation in any type of traffic case. He was friendly, knowledgeable, and very easy to contact. After he took on my cases I was able to forget about them while Ken took care of everything. All 3 of my cases that I hired him for were dismissed and my insurance never suffered. Thank you! - 2/26/2021

5 star rating After i got cited with a hefty speeding fine (2 points plus insurance premiums skyrocketing for 3 years due to the nature of the ticket& not traffic school eligible) i contacted Mr Hallum the next day. Spoke over the phone and did a contract with him to represent me on my case. He basically took over and after that it was just a waiting game. After about 4 months back and forth with the traffic court, my fine was reduced to a level where i could attend traffic school minus $400 and keep my record clean which to me was the best that could have happened since i was caught by the officer with a laser gun which is solid accurate and specific to vehicle. Basically by reducing my fine, his services paid for itself and on the plus side by completing traffic school my record is kept clean. Although i hope i never have to use his services again he would be the person i would go directly without hesitation if need be.Thank you Mr Hallum for being direct, straight to the point and getting the burden of this ticket reduced to a slap on the wrist for this time. Lesson learned. - 12/13/2019
