when you need a tough defense
Seattle Speeding Ticket Lawyer
Over 98% of traffic tickets we fight are dismissed or amended to an infraction that is not reported to your insurance company.
Should I contest, pay or mitigate my Speeding Ticket? The first question most people want answered after receiving a speeding or traffic ticket is should I contest my ticket? If the only negative impact of a traffic ticket was the fine on the face of the ticket, there would be little need for traffic infraction lawyers. Instead...
The Real Cost of a Traffic Ticket Often Goes Well Beyond the Potential Monetary Penalty
Speeding tickets, tickets issued as the result of an accident, and many other traffic infractions, can significantly increase your insurance rates or cause you to lose preferred rate insurance coverage. Washington DOL reports your traffic ticket to your insurance company for three years (longer for employers, law enforcement and some others). If you drive as part of your job, traffic infractions can cause you to lose your job or be demoted to a lower paying position. If you have a Commercial Driver’s License this can mean the loss of a lucrative career. Don’t let this happen, our Seattle speeding ticket lawyer can help.
If you have a previous deferred finding the court could enter a committed finding on that ticket as well. If you are being monitored by a court for a criminal conviction, you may suffer additional fines, suspensions or even jail. Too many Seattle traffic tickets will trigger the Washington Department of Licensing to take administrative actions against your license such as probationary licensing, suspension of your privilege to drive, requiring SR-22 insurance, or mandating you take traffic safety classes.
If you are under 18 years old, the DOL can put you on probation, extend the period of your intermediate license or suspend your driving privileges altogether.
Finally, you may not have committed the infraction! As cities are under pressure to find new ways to generate revenue more mistakes are made. Erroneously issued citations are an increasing problem and you should not have to suffer for something you did not do.
Keep Your Insurance Rates Affordable
Seattle speeding ticket lawyer Scott W. Lawrence understands the reasons you are fighting your ticket and will fight to win your case. By many estimates,you should expect a 25-30% increase in your insurance rates for a single traffic ticket. According to Jennifer Flaten of Life123.com, “Depending on your age, your driving history and the severity of the ticket, you could see an increase of $300 per year to your insurance premium for a single infraction.”
Our Seattle Speeding Ticket Lawyer will Represent you in Court
Your time is too valuable to be sitting in line at the courthouse and waiting for your case to be heard. In addition, in most cases your presence in court is not needed to effectively fight your traffic ticket. Our Seattle speeding ticket lawyer will represent you. Most traffic tickets are dismissed on “technicalities” that ticket lawyers are trained to exploit, while few cases are won on the facts. This is why it makes sense to hire an experienced and aggressive speeding ticket attorney go to court on your behalf.
Leave the Legal Work to an Experienced Professional
A speeding ticket or traffic ticket is almost never won on the facts. Most tickets are dismissed because the rules of evidence prohibit admission of crucial evidence; court procedures were not strictly followed; or the court rules for infractions have been violated. To fight tickets effectively you must understand all of the possible technical defenses available and how to assert them. The prosecutor has several professionals (officer, prosecutor, radar tech,…) on their side, shouldn’t you?
