Lamont Court serves the Southern jurisdiction of Kern County. The primary source of cases in the Court originate from Interstate 5 and Highway 99 that passes through the area. The CHP patrol that stretch of freeway and issue a tremendous amount of citations for everything from driving under the influence to speeding and reckless driving.
The Court is located at 12022 Main Street, Lamont California 93241. The Court is often referred to as the “Arvin-Lamont Branch” because it serves both cities as well as unincorporated areas of South Kern County such as Frazier Park, Pine Mountain Club and the Grapevine.
In one recent case our lawyers were able to successfully defend a client who resided in Frazier Park and was arrested for driving under the influence. The blood test showed a BAC above .08 and a field breath test reported his blood alcohol at .10 at the time of arrest. Matthew was able to win the DMV hearing and save his license by showing the tests were wrong as it related to the BAC at the time of driving. In Court Matt got the DUI charges DISMISSED and reduced to a reckless driving.

I was arrested for DUI on Interstate 5 and have a Court date in Lamont Court, what are my options? First, if the incident took place within the last 10 days and you wish to save your license a DMV Hearing must be requested ASAP. California law only gives a driver 10 calendar days to contest the suspension otherwise the loss of your driving privileges for up to 3 years becomes final and non-contestable. Matthew can take care of this for you as long as you contact him within the statutory time. Second, Matthew can go to Court for you and resolve your Court criminal charges by negotiating a reduced charge or obtaining a dismissal if the facts and evidence is lacking.
Matthew and his team have offices in both Los Angeles and Kern County. For 30 years they have been fighting and winning drunk driving cases in all cities along interstate 5, including Frazier Park, Lebec, Fort Tejon, Pine Mountain Club, Taft, Maricopa, Mettler and the Grapevine. If you or someone you know needs a DUI Attorney in Lamont CA Court, Matthew and his team are here to help.
What is the cost to hire a DUI Lawyer? Most attorneys will charge a flat fee to represent a client on a DWI case. The normal cost of a lawyer in these cases is between $2500-$5000 depending on the complexity of the case and whether the person has prior convictions.
Can an Attorney Appear For Me in Court? Yes, our attorneys go to Court for our clients in most cases. This saves the client from needless travel and taking off time from work.
Is it Worth Hiring a DUI Lawyer for my Lamont DUI?
The answer depends on how important it is to keep your drivers license and avoid a criminal record. If you are not concerned about driving in California and you don’t need to worry about getting a job then the answer is probably no. For everyone else a lawyer can help to avoid the consequences of a drunk driving conviction and keep your drivers license from being suspended, in most cases.
What can a DUI Attorney in Lamont CA do for me? First, we can STOP the DMV suspension in its tracks. This allows you to keep driving. We can get a hearing to challenge the suspension and/or mitigate the consequences. Second, we get all of the evidence which includes police reports, blood test results and will scrutinize the actions of the officer, looking for errors and violations of the regulations. Third, we speak to the District Attorney, presenting all favorable evidence and if necessary request a dismissal of the charges.
Matthew is 5 star rated ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ by his clients on social media and is a Top Tier DUI Lawyer and member of the National College of DUI Defense.
Matthew and his team of DUI Lawyers in Lamont CA are skilled in finding the defects in the case that can directly lead to a dismissal or reduction of the charges. One of the ways we scrutinize a case is to analyze and deconstruct the basis for the initial stop of the client’s vehicle. Many cops will stop a car based on improper grounds such as the race or ethnicity of the driver or simply on a hunch. Our lawyers are adept in challenging the stop on 4th Amendment grounds, arguing our client’s rights were violated.
Can the CHP stop me based solely on a 911 call? The answer depends on what information the caller provides. In cases where the caller is anonymous Courts have been more reluctant to allow a stop due to the higher risk of prank callers. However, if the person who made the 911 call identified themselves it is more likely a Judge will deem the stop lawful. Matthew has personally defended and won cases involving bogus 911 calls where the tipster reported a drunk driver on the road. The best way to fight the case is to get the actual transcript of the phone call and determine if a challenge to the initial stop is viable.
Matthew has the Highest Success Rate!
With 30 years experience comes many successful outcomes, hundreds of cases dismissed, hundreds of cases where the DMV returned our client’s drivers license. Some cases stand out, such as the blood results of .30% that Matt got thrown out because of errors in the reports. With regard to refusal allegations, Matt has won more cases than most other attorneys. Refusal to submit to a chemical test in California can result in a revocation of your driving privileges for up to three years but if you hire a lawyer early enough the suspension or revocation can be stopped and a hearing can be obtained to challenge the action.
In one recent refusal case Matthew was able to win and obtain a set aside based on an insufficient admonition. The admonition is a critical part of the case and it requires the officer to advise the driver of the requirement to submit but also the consequences of the failure to agree to a breath or blood test. If it can be shown that a proper admonition was not given in a case the suspension can be avoided.

What are the consequences for driving under the influence in a Commercial Vehicle? California law treats DWI in a big rig as a very serious offense given the high risk of danger involved. The law prohibits any driver of a commercial truck to have a .04 or more while behind the wheel. Because of the geographic location of the Lamont Court, there are a higher number of citations issued for big truck offenses such as drunk driving and related misdemeanors. Our Lamont DUI Lawyers are skilled in fighting criminal charges involving commercial drivers. The consequences for a conviction of driving while impaired in a truck can be up to 6 months in jail and loss of your driver’s license for up to one year for a first offense and a life revocation for a second violation. If you drive a big rig for a living but are arrested for drunk driving in a non commercial vehicle you still face disqualification
from driving with the class A license for a minimum of one year if you are convicted or suspended administratively.
We Defend Commercial Drivers for all Crimes. In addition to DWI, our team of advocates defend truck drivers on any criminal charge. For example, in one case Matthew personally represented a truck driver charged with assault involving a motor vehicle (Big Rig) when the driver crashed into a car shortly after passing through Lamont. The CHP alleged our client intentionally struck a car in front of her on Highway 99 south of Bakersfield. The client was arrested and charged with a felony PC 245a1. Matt was hired and he reconstructed the incident in Court and showed the incident was an accident and not intentional. The client was ACQUITTED and found NOT GUILTY by a jury. If you are facing a criminal charge anywhere in Kern County call us, we can help.
