Speeding Tickets

A traffic ticket can seem very minimal or trivial, but it is a serious legal matter that has serious legal consequences. A traffic ticket may come with costly fines and fees, a possible impact on your driver's license or commercial driver's license, increased insurance premiums, and more. It is smart to have an attorney represent you on a traffic ticket.

Commercial Driver's Licenses

If you have a Commercial Driver's License (CDL), your livelihood could be affected with a potential suspension of your CDL. This can be true even if you are driving your personal vehicle. If you receive any traffic tickets while being a CDL holder, it is important to hire a traffic offense lawyer to help you with these charges. 

Speeding Tickets

Speeding tickets come in many forms. How the officer wrote your ticket could have grave impact on your license and insurance. An attorney can look into issues such as radar certifications, police reports and affidavits, the form of the ticket itself, and more. These issues can sometimes assist you with a better result in court.

Deferred Finding

In Washington State, you can defer a ticket but you definitely want to make sure that deferring is your best option before you do so. You only get one deferred finding every 7 years. Don't waste it if you can do something that may work even better in your scenario.
