There really is no scam. Nevada (Las Vegas) is one of those rare places that has a system in place whereby an attorney can go to an attorney session on your behalf and get your traffic violation reduced to an "illegal parking". Although there will be a fine, and the fine may be high depending on what you were pulled over for, you will save much more money on the illegal parking charge because your insurance will not increase.
Have you been discriminated at your place of employment and been terminated in the aftermath? Many people feel that this is the case in todays economy. However, there is a fine line between "My boss is a jerk" and "I am entitled to damages under the Discrimination laws of the United States of America"!
