Judicial District and all speeding tickets, DUI and criminal cases
originating in that part of the County are sent to Lamont Court for
adjudication.  Attorney Ruff has 25 years of experience fighting
traffic tickets, drunk driving charges and all other criminal related
offenses in this tribunal.  Anyone facing an upcoming Court date is

Among the many different traffic violations are Firm defends are
those involving Vehicle Code 34506 which governs how commercial
drivers must comply with CHP rules and paperwork.  The citation is
almost always written as a misdemeanor and the penalty can be very
serious if not handled appropriately.  In Kern County these tickets are
often written at the inspection stops or weigh stations and can include
hazardous material transportation.  In many cases the violations may
be owner responsibility.

Recent Case Results
Attorney Ruff defended a Commercial driver charged with DUI in
Bakersfield.  The BAC was above the legal limit and if he was
convicted he would lose his commercial license for one full year.  Mr.
Ruff retained a toxicologist to rebut the accuracy of the breath test
and was able to get an acquittal of the excessive BAC charges thereby
saving his license and his job in December 2014.

Our Firm was retained by a student who lived in the bay area after he
was involved in a traffic mishap on the 99.  The police were called
out and he was arrested for drunk driving, we got the DMV to return
his license on a technicality and the attorney persuaded the DA to
reduce the charges to an infraction.

We were hired over the Internet by a driver who was given a 22348b
violation, driving over 100 mph.  He worked for a tech company and
was here on a work visa, not a US citizen.  We went to court in
Lamont and got the charges dismissed at trial.

Our law firm represented a DUI client who was pulled over near Taft
for driving without headlights, his blood alcohol level was .15 and
was arrested for VC23152.  He worked for an Oil company and
risked losing his job if found guilty.  Bruce got his charges reduced
and saved his license at the DMV.  

Client was arrested for DUI in Kern County by the CHP his blood
result was a .23% BAC, our Lawyer got the case thrown out on the
grounds that the client was stopped without probable cause, his
drivers license was returned.

In June of 2013 our Firm was able to obtain an acquittal (NOT
GUILTY) for a client arrested for VC23152 in southern Kern
County.  The client had a prior driving under the influence conviction
in Los Angeles County.  The case progressed to trial and resulted in
all DUI charges being dropped.  This was particularly beneficial to the
client due to the fact he had a commercial drivers license.  

How To Stay Alive During a Traffic Stop
Everybody has had a bad encounter with a police officer while
stopped for a traffic violation, here are a couple of tips to keep that
from escalating into a situation you may not walk away from:  First, if
the officer does something you think is improper do not argue or try
to assert your rights on the roadside.  Get the officer's badge number
and contact his Department when you arrive home.  All agencies are
required to take a report of misconduct and that report may stay in
the personnel file of the cop.  Second, if you are asked to step out of
the car, do it.  The law gives the officer wide discretion to request
this and if you refuse it could escalate the situation.  If you follow this
advice you will be better off.

The first 10 days after an arrest are very important because a DMV
hearing must be demanded to save your license. If you or a loved one
has been arrested, issued a
speeding ticket, charged with a crime,
have a  Failure to Appear, Bench Warrant  or any serious  criminal
case pending in the  Lamont Court  in Kern County California, call
