A comment from our founder:
“Thank you for visiting CDA’s website. If you are researching our company, you probably have some nightmare developing with the California DMV. You have reason for concern but please understand you don’t have to face the DMV alone. Whether you’re a bank CEO or a soccer mom, I know how critical it is to protect your driving privilege. If you’re an ambulance driver or a bus driver, I know your very career depends on beating the DMV at their own game.
We can help. My staff and I are committed to giving each of our clients the “white glove” treatment they seek but rarely find. We won’t stop fighting until the case is completed. We will keep you fully apprised of your case during each stage of development. It’s your life, it’s your driving privilege and we owe you the comfort of knowing where your case stands.
Above all else…… Fight for yourself. Don’t let the DMV steal your license and turn your life upside down without a fight. Even if you can’t afford to hire us, call us. At the very least, allow us to educate you, answer your questions, and point you in the right direction.”
