Two new collection agencies instead of GC Services
As of September 2022, the Los Angeles Superior court has started using 2 new collection agencies instead of GC Services. They have assigned 5 Courts with their tickets to Linebarger Goggan Blair & Sampson LLP and the other 14 courthouses have been assigned to the other collection agency Harris and Harris Ltd. All traffic tickets that were transferred to GC Services for collection have now been transferred to Linebarger Goggan Blair & Sampson LLP or Harris and Harris Ltd.

When to pay and when not to pay!
When it's better NOT to pay!
As long as you have not already been in front of a Judge, it is sometimes better that you DO NOT PAY the amount these collection agencies are seeking from you and instead get a court date in front of a judge and try to correct and/or fight the violations & lower the fine. We can attend court on your behalf, should you not wish to attend so that you do not have to miss work. In many cases, this is your best option.
However keep in mind, since the Los Angeles County Superior Court has stopped selling DMV Abstracts (as of April 6, 2015), this sometimes makes it harder for some people to clear up their license quickly. It can put people in a difficult position – either you pay Linebarger Goggan Blair & Sampson LLP or Harris and Harris Ltd the big fine amount to clear up the hold on your license, or you schedule a new court date which can be a couple of months away to see the Judge in order to try and fight your charges, get the fine lowered and your license hold cleared.

We offer an alternative to paying GC Services, LGBS or Harris and Harris that big fine if your ticket was in Los Angeles County. Call us on (310) 285-1516 for a free legal consultation if you have never been in front of a judge about your ticket. We will discuss what your best options are.
When to pay
We unfortunately CANNOT HELP YOU WITH THESE COLLECTION AGENCIES IF YOU HAVE ALREADY SEEN A JUDGE AND PLEAD GUILTY OR NO CONTEST and you did not pay your fine or do your community service by the due date. The only way out of this Failure to Pay situation that we know of is to pay the heavy fines. See our section on FTP failure to pay for a better explanation. We can only help you with GC Services or LGBS or Harris and Harris in Los Angeles County if you have never seen a Judge.
Did you receive a letter from the DMV?
If you have received a letter from the DMV stating that the DMV is going to suspend your license very soon because you failed to appear in court for this ticket in Los Angeles County, please call us immediately (310) 285-1516 as we often can use this DMV letter to see a Judge right away for you. We usually can clear up your license in 24 to 48 hours and before the suspension date so your license does not get suspended on the date listed in the DMV letter sent to you.
