Areas of Practice
01. TRAFFIC TICKETS
A Santa Barbara or Solvang traffic ticket can make your insurance rates go up substantially, and additionally you could even lose your license with enough DMV points on your record.
Don’t take chances with your future, if you have been charged with drunk driving, your first action should be to contact a qualified DUI/Drunk Driving Attorney in the Santa Barbara area to represent you against these charges.
03. DMV HEARINGS
When arrested for DUI in California, your license is automatically suspended. However, you will receive a pink “Suspension Order and Temporary License” which allows you temporary driving privileges for 30 days.
I would like to recommend Ken Hallum for his work on my son’s DUI case. There were three counts in this case; speeding, open container and a measurable amount of alcohol in the breath test (these are obviously the colloquial names) in a minor (19). With some careful thought and a moment of inspiration, Ken…

Hit and Run
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.
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.
