Any person who drives for a living has more at stake than just their insurance rates.  For a professional driver, a traffic ticket on your record can mean the loss of your livelihood.  This is true not just for a holder of a Commercial Driver’s license.  It is true also for anyone who is provided a vehicle by their employer such as a work truck or car.  It also applies to anyone who works as a gig driver. (I can not name the companies as it is a trademark violation) Often a driver does not know the effect a single violation will have on their employment until it is already on their record, but which time it is probably too late.  We regularly get calls from drivers in that position.  The time to act is when you receive the ticket, not after it is already on your record.  If we are successful at dismissing or reducing your traffic violation, the violation does not appear on your driver’s abstract, and so effect your employment

We defend clients traffic and speeding tickets in District and Municipal Courts throughout King, Pierce, Snohomish, Thurston, Skagit, Kitsap and Whatcom Counties.  You can see a list of the court locations which we cover here (If you don’t see your court listed, call us)

 

Most tickets are either dismissed outright or a change to a non-moving violation is negotiated; with few found committed as written.  The advantage to an Experienced Traffic Lawyer is how and when to fight, and how and when to deal in order to get the best possible outcome for our client. The real cost of a traffic ticket is not the fine but rather the increase in insurance costs, which might run into the thousands.  For professional drivers the ticket is even more critical; one ticket might mean the loss of a job. If charged with Reckless Driving or Driving on a Suspended License, there is added fines and penalties, and a criminal record to consider. For more on how we might be able to help you, please call us at 206-816-9110 or fill out the form at the right for a callback to receive your free case evaluation.

As a former professional driver and Class-A CDL holder, Attorney Antone Weber is very aware of the importance and effects of even a single traffic violation.  Prior to entering the practice of law, he drove construction trucks such as belly dump and dump trucks.  He worked as a delivery driver at various times for Airbourne Express, DHL and UPS.  He also drove a taxicab while studying for his undergraduate degree in Anchorage, and worked as a legal messenger while in Law School.

We do most CDL traffic tickets, criminal traffic charges, and administrative driver’s license suspension hearings (DOL hearings).  Our goal is to protect our client’s records, and keep them employed.  We want to get your ticket or charge dismissed, or if not, we seek to reduce your charge to a non-moving violation or or resolutions that minimizes the impact of your traffic ticket or charge.   Not all courts will allow amendments to non-moving infractions for a CLD holder, particularly if the violation occurred while driving commercially instead of in a private vehicle, but we will do everything possible to help you.  CDL holders are not eligible for a deferred findings.
