Traffic Tickets

Michael Coffino represents people cited for traffic infractions like speeding or other moving violations who have been ordered to appear in traffic court. He can appear in court for you so you don’t miss work or family obligations. Often these cases can be resolved favorably with a dismissal or a reduction of the charges to avoid increased insurance rates or points on your driver’s license.

The California DMV can revoke or suspend your driving privilege if you receive 4 points within 12 months; 6 points with 24 months; or 8 points within 36 months. A minor's provisional license may be suspended for getting 3 points within 12 months; or restricted for 30 days for 2 points within 12 months; or suspended for 1 year for using any alcohol or drugs.

In some cases, if you attend a one-day traffic school (with online classes available) you may avoid getting points on your license that could result in a license suspension or higher insurance rates. Michael Coffino can set your case for a traffic trial and also negotiate with the arresting law enforcement agency in an effort to resolve the case for lesser charges.

Client Reviews
Mr.Coffino saved me! He and his investigator got evidence that I didn't commit the crime I was accused of: Felony Assault With a Deadly Weapon. Charge was dismissed. Mr. Coffino is highly intelligent, professional, and actually cared about me. This is the attorney that the Marin IJ stated "the best attorney money can't buy" when he worked for the Public Defender's Office. And he really cares about his clients!!! JR
Mike is an amazing, strong, and articulate lawyer that will not only point out the facts that are relevant to one's case but, will make sure that he has addressed every concern that you have to the court/judge. I was also very impressed with Mike's closing arguments. They were strong, very well referenced, and specific to the my case. For those that are wondering if Mike is the man for the job, HE is definitely the MAN you want representing you in your case. EM
I had some experience with lawyers in the past but not like Mike. He was a bulldog in the courtroom. His closing arguments were off the charts and we won. Thanks Mike!!! CH
Best attorney I could of asked for. I never had any doubts about him, I knew from the beginning he was going to do his best to help me and that was exactly what he did. Very informative about what was going on, he would lay out a plan and do exactly as he would say. Very good attorney. Strongly recommended. AM
I’ll never be able to explain everything you did for me. He did so much in my domestic violence case. When I called, he answered every time. He was there for me. He saved my life. What more can I say? I will never be able to repay him. FM
