Failure to Appear in Court Lawyer in Los Angeles

Defending FTA Offenses throughout Los Angeles, Ventura & Kern Counties

If you did not pay your ticket or go to your court date, you may face punishments for failure to appear (FTA). Your situation may be referred to as a DMV or license hold, or as a ticket in collection. In many situations, an FTA offense occurs without the violator even realizing it, or because the violator is unaware of their rights and responsibilities regarding a traffic ticket.

At TKT REP, we work tirelessly to help clients regain their driving privileges and ensure that an unpaid ticket does not impact their daily life. Our Los Angeles defense attorney is ready to handle your case from start to finish so that you can avoid going to court and worrying about your ticket.

If you have been charged with failure to appear in California, schedule a consultation with our Los Angeles FTA defense attorney to avoid facing legal penalties.

What Happens If I Fail to Appear in Court?

Failure to appear in court can result in a hold on you drivers license. California VC 40509.5. states that a hold on a drivers license can result in a suspended drivers license and will remain until you appear in court to pay your fines. In Los Angeles County, tickets that are ignored go to the court’s collection company, GC Services. After that, the cost of the ticket balloons and the DMV can issue a hold or suspension against your license.

What a Los Angeles Defense Attorney Can Do

At TKT REP, we are determined to get these tickets out of collection and back in court. Once we appear in front of the judge – which we can do on your behalf, without you present – the FTA hold is lifted, and you can get your license reinstated by the DMV without your ticket being an obstacle. In most cases, you will not need to pay anything to get your license cleared once we have gotten the FTA hold lifted.
