Founder and Managing Member of The Ticket Advocate, LLC.
Steve has been leading the fight against traffic tickets for over 12 years, practically inventing this industry. Originally Steve served as President and Founder of TicketBust.com and now with GetDismissed.com. In 2004, with one goal in mind; to help drivers contest and dismiss their traffic tickets quickly, easily, and inexpensively, Steve formed TicketBust.com. Since then Steve has continued to expand TicketBust.com by developing and deploying all the necessary solutions to assist drivers with contesting their traffic tickets. Steve has been featured as an expert authority on many television, radio, and online networks discussing traffic tickets in California in addition to a thought leader and business entrepreneur and as a published author.
Based on the knowledge of developing and running a successful traffic ticket service in California, Steve felt that there must be an easier, simpler, and better way to contest a traffic ticket. Steve set out to create a new and revolutionary way to contest a traffic ticket by enabling the masses of people receiving tickets and empowering them with the ability to fight back. Thus the GetDismissed service was born and released in February 2015.
Initially raising development funds from friends and family to release and test market GetDismissed, Steve was subsequently able to complete an angel round at a $3M valuation. Steve has now transformed the GetDismissed service into a membership service that allows all California drivers to contest their traffic tickets for free.
Steve is a published author, releasing his first book in 2011, "Traffic Tickets. Don't Get Mad. Get Them Dismissed. Traffic Ticket Tips, Must Knows, and Much More", and then followed it up in 2012 with, "Traffic Tickets. Don't Get Mad. Get Them Dismissed. Stories From The Street. The Ones Who GOT OFF". In 2015 Steve released his third book "Getdismissed: No Brainwork Required, It's That Simple".
Prior to TicketBust.com, Steve was CEO of MediaHippo, Inc., an interactive agency focused on web, DVD, and multimedia development. Steve was instrumental in promoting and marketing the Kodak Photo CD technology in the 1990's, authored many articles and was a featured speaker at numerous industry events. Steve graduated from California State University Northridge with a BS in Accounting. Steve worked for Deloitte Haskins and Sells as a Certified Public Accountant, prior to starting his own accounting agency.
