GETDISMISSED featured in US News and World Report - "Tools That Will Help You Dispute Pesky Traffic and Parking Tickets"
If you get a traffic ticket in California, you typically have the option to "request trial by written declaration" (where you submit a written statement by mail rather than appear in traffic court). For a flat fee, GETDISMISSED helps you through that process for minor infractions such as running a stop sign or speeding (it cannot help with misdemeanors, including reckless driving, hit and run or driving without a license). "Basically, we're a self-help document facilitation service," says Steve Miller, founder and CEO of GETDISMISSED. "The system develops the documents you need to print out, sign and send to the court. We're sort of a LegalZoom for traffic tickets." Click here to read the full story.

GETDISMISSED featured in Bloomberg Businessweek - "Apps That Fight Your Tickets"
The average American spends about $232 on legal expenses each year, and many attorneys charge $175 to $550 an hour. Among other things, that means people don't hire counsel for minor offenses-only about 5 percent of U.S. traffic tickets are contested in court. Since last year, more than two dozen iOS and Android apps have popped up to try to price more people back in...including GETDISMISSED which is specifically designed to fight traffic tickets.

GETDISMISSED.COM mentioned in Pasadena Weekly – "Heeding an online app that helps hapless drivers who happen to have a traffic ticket"
"GETDISMISSED: No Brainwork Required, It's That Simple. Get your traffic ticket dismissed, without going to court," by Steven F. Miller & Alexis C. Vega, just kept cycling to the top of my file.
I read the book. Impressed by the vibe throughout that the best way to avoid tickets is to obey the law and intrigued by the authors' perspective that tickets are taxes, and that only seven percent of ticketed motorists contest their tickets, I wanted to know more. According to GETDISMISSED.COM, 5.2 million infraction-level tickets are issued every year in California. The California Vehicle Code, at more than 1,200 pages, ensures that no motorist is ever completely safe from these oftentimes unwarranted "taxes"; the sheer volume of laws is bound to ensnare even the most conscientious driver at some point.

GETDISMISSED featured in the Los Angeles Daily Journal - "Traffic trials should be reformed, chief says" by America Hernandez
Steven F. Miller, chief executive officer of the GETDISMISSED smartphone application, which allows people to electronically submit a trial by declaration contesting their ticket by answering a series of questions, highlighted the method as a potential cost-saving measure for underfunded courts seeking to reduce the in-person caseload. With trials by declaration, defendants submit their testimony in writing, as do police officers, and a judge rules based on the documents. If the ticket is not dismissed, individuals can still do a trial de novo in person. "You do still have to post bail, but it's one of the only ways in the court system you really get two bites at the apple," Miller said. "I wouldn't be surprised if one day the Legislature requires all defendants to go through a trial by declaration because there's so much money wasted by people showing up in person when they can show up in writing first."
