  • Driving Offenses


If you have been pulled over for a traffic offense, you could end up having to pay heavy fines. Many people do not think that there is anything you can do to defend yourself against speeding tickets and other moving violations. This could not be further from the truth. In fact, with a competent lawyer on your side, you could be able to avoid even going to court. If you have received a ticket, the consequences can be far-reaching.

For example, traffic fines can cost you hundreds of dollars and this does not include the amount that you will have to pay in increased insurance for your car. Additionally, if your driving offense is severe enough, you could even face losing your license. Do not worry! There is something you can do about your speeding or other driving offense ticket. Attorneys at our law group are skilled and experienced in handling all types of driving-related offenses, including speeding, negligent driving, failure to obey signals, no proof of insurance and even tailgating.


With the help of a skilled lawyer who has your best interests at heart, you can take the necessary steps to give yourself the maximum chance of receiving a positive outcome in your traffic offense case. You don’t have to face this alone. Multiple driving offenses can result in undesirable consequences that could have been avoidable if you had spoken with an attorney who is familiar with the Washington traffic laws. Without speaking to an attorney, you could be facing increased insurance rates or loss of your license.
