What is Trial by Written Declaration?

Trial by Written Declaration is a trial option offered in California for most infractions. It allows the defendant to challenge their ticket without a court appearance by submitting a written defense.

Do you work in other states besides California?

No, our team is California exclusive.

What is a legal drafting fee?

Our team understands that every citation is unique. When we take on a ticket our legal team composes an individually based defense with the specific facts of the case in mind. As a result, all cases have a non-refundable legal drafting fee for the effort that goes into crafting each defense.

When do I get you to tell my side of the story?

Once our team begins working on your case, you will gain access to a citation questionnaire in your Ticket Snipers account where you can provide details about the alleged violation.

Why do you need to look at the ticket?

The ticket given to you by the officer contains the details regarding what the officer has alleged against you. You are innocent until proven guilty, so when we look at your ticket our team gains an understanding of what the officer would need to demonstrate proof of in order to uphold a citation.

Do you need to review my courtesy notice?

Usually, no. If we do need to look at the notice, we will request it after your citation is reviewed.

My personal information is on my ticket. Is it secure?

Absolutely. Privacy is a top priority and your information is never shared with anyone. Additionally, our website is equipped with SSL Certification meaning that our website’s security is comparable with your bank’s.

What is your success rate?

We do not purport a rate of success. It is not legal to advertise a success rate in California as the decision is always up to the individual Judge – outcomes of past cases do not forecast outcomes of future ones.
