We are Traffic Ticket Attorneys with nearly 15 years experience representing clients for Traffic Infractions and Criminal Traffic Law Violations . From that experience we know that the real cost is not the fine for an infraction ticket but rather the increase in insurance costs, and that even if you pay our low fixed fee and the fine if we can keep the violation from your record you will probably come out money ahead. For professional drivers it 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 a 206-816-9110 or fill out the form at the bottom of the page for a callback to receive your free consultation.
While our office will take care of things like obtaining discovery or evidence documents that are to be used against you, scheduling appearances, document review, evidence and case preparation and the like, there are some things that we will need your participation in. Missing deadlines can compromise our ability to assist you.
If you have not returned your ticket to the court address on it, keep in mind that it must be date-stamped by the Post Office within two weeks (usually) of the date that you received the ticket. We prefer to speak with you before you send the ticket in, but if that is not possible make a copy, mark the original that you want a “contested” hearing, and mail it in. You have now asked for a court date, but you still have to option to pay off the ticket without appearing and at no extra court costs.
Then call us.
If after discussing your matter we reach an agreement on representation, please fill out, sign and return the Fee Agreement and payment as soon as possible. Payment can be made by check, or we can provide a secure link to our card processor, Lawpay.
The court will set deadlines which we must observe, and does not look kindly on them being missed. However, we legally can not begin acting your behalf until the agreement and payment have been received
Needless to say, if your address, email, or phone number change, please let us know.
Provide any documents which your are asked for promptly. I have had more than one person have a no insurance charge with a $550 fine found committed because they did not send me the paperwork showing that they had insurance at the time in spite of repeated requests, and which would have gotten the charge dismissed. If you do not have the proper paperwork, I can advise you on what documents to ask your insurance company for. If we negotiate an agreement that requires that you do a driving class, please do not wait until the last minute, as an in-person class may fill up, or your internet connection go down the night before the hearing when you have decided to do an online class. If there are any problems, most judges will not give you more time. Remember: Murphy was an optimist.
