As a layman, who began to stand up for himself and fight back against a majority of unjust tickets in 1983, I've been using Attorney Brown's book so long I consider myself a charter member of this guide; one of Nolo's most popular (and for good reason!). Addressing the primary beef in the review from 'Anonymous', _Fight_Your_Ticket_ is not the complete users' guide to fighting tickets, nor can -- nor should -- it be! For such an item to exist, it would have to contain so many pages and/or hyperlinks to other material, it would be hopelessly cumbersome. As to what it strives to be, however (and that is a very comprehensive guide on how to enter the intimidating legal arena necessary to fight an infraction [or worse, a misdemeanor or felony] citation), it succeeds remarkably well. Regarding more advanced or arcane legal points, Mr. Brown does a good job giving the reader the tools and the means to go reference the final authority: the actual statute(s), and possible associated case law. A hearty "thumbs up" to a book I'm still using today, actively fighting an unjust citation that is still pending as I write this review!Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.

I would say you should not rely on this book for taking you through all the steps clearly. I had to do further research online on other sites to get clearer answers to things that the book didn't cover. For example, the book doesn't mention that you should send discovery request a certain number of days before arraignment - but it says at arraignment, you should ask the judge for a motion to dismiss if your discovery request wasn't responded to. Later I found out through a website how many days prior to arraignment you should send a discovery request.
