California Department of Motor Vehicles 
California Department of Motor Vehicles
The DMV (Department of Motor Vehicles) in the state of California can be a very intimidating place, even if you are there for something simple like renewing a driver’s license or a license plate for your vehicle. Luckily, you have the professionals at ready and waiting to serve you. With nearly 40 years of California court experience, we promise to work hard for you; and many times we can have the charges dropped altogether. If you are required to deal with the DMV in order to resolve legal matters, it is important that you fully understand your rights beforehand; and this may require you to contact a qualified California Traffic Ticket Attorney like Sherman M. Ellison.

For starters, many people are not aware that their operator’s license may be suspended for a simple traffic ticket; but if you are already on driving probation from previous charges, or if you already have a number of points on your license, you may just lose it. And one doesn’t need to be on prior probation in order to have their license suspended. For example, if you gain 4 points in a 12 month period, 6 points in a 24 month period, or 8 points in a 36 month period, you will be deemed a ‘Negligent Operator’ by the DMV. You can contest this decision in a hearing, and that is where the importance of having a California Traffic Ticket Attorney like Sherman M. Ellison on your side; there are many ways which he can help you with such court proceedings, including the possibility of getting one or more of your previous convictions dropped and off from your record.

Another group of California citizens that often find themselves in trouble with the DMV are senior citizens and the elderly. In fact, many are subject to unfair re-examination tests that may potentially result in the loss of their driver’s license. If this has happened to you or a loved one, don’t hesitate to contact Sherman M. Ellison. He has plenty of experience in the field, and he will do his best to help you keep your license; and many times, he can even get it reinstated after it has already been suspended or revoked.

If you have any DMV matters or issues that you need resolved, contact California Traffic Ticket Attorney like Sherman M. Ellison immediately. You can either call us at 866-Speeding, or fill out our Free Evaluation form to learn more information and find out how you can benefit and help clean up your driving record with the help of a qualified, experienced California Traffic Ticket Attorney.

Traffic Judge

Sherman M. Ellison has been a practicing trial attorney in California for 35 years. In that regard, he has also been a "Judge Pro Tem", sitting as a Traffic Judge for the past three (3) years. To comport as a traffic judge, Mr. Ellison received the same training to be a traffic judge as permanently sitting traffic judges and traffic commissioners. I have the same Judge's Traffic Manual in my library as do traffic judges/commissioners.

During my tenure as a traffic judge, I had spoken to numerous radar and laser operating police/law enforcement officers. I learned a lot about their use of radar and laser to enforce the speed laws.
