I've called more than 5 lawyers and none of them said they could reduce the violation down to no points/non-moving violation. Most of them said they may get it down to 2 points for a "disobeying traffic signal".

Plus, all of them basically asked me to pay them, and none of them would guarantee any reduction at all, which means I have no leverage what-so-ever. So why would I give money to a stranger and hope that they may do something for me in return?

Remember, this is originally a 91 in 65 six-point violation.
