Washington Department of Licensing reports your traffic ticket to your insurance company for three years (longer for employers, law enforcement and commercial drivers). Let one of our speeding ticket lawyers help you keep your insurance costs low.
Commercial Drivers: If you drive as part of your job, traffic infractions can cause problems with your employment, including the loss of your job or demotion. If you have a Commercial Driver’s License your ability to drive, hence your career, maybe in jeopardy.
Prior Infractions or Criminal Convictions: If you have a previous traffic ticket that proceeded by way of a deferred finding or SOC (Stipulated Order of Continuance) a new violation may invalidate the prior deal. Further if you are on probation and a condition is no traffic violations, you may face a penalty of jail. Let one of our traffic ticket attorneys defend you in court.
License Suspension: If you have compiled too many traffic violations the Department of Licensing may take administrative action and suspend your license. This may involve probationary licensing, license suspension, SR 22 insurance or traffic safety classes. To keep your license valid, please consult with one of our traffic ticket attorneys.Under 18: 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.

We fight thousands of traffic tickets every year and one of the many truths our Whatcom County traffic ticket attorneys know is that many, if not most people who are stopped for a traffic ticket, simply pay it. They share the common misconception that you do not need to hire an attorney after receiving a ticket for a traffic violation. While this may seem logical for these seemingly small offenses such as speeding or running a red light, there are many benefits to hiring an experienced Whatcom County traffic ticket attorney to challenge your ticket.
Paying a traffic ticket is essentially admitting guilt. The court finds that the infraction is committed and send proof of the “guilty finding” to the Washington State Department of Licensing. If you pay a citation points may be assessed on your driving record. Added points on your record may lead to increased insurance costs and possibly a suspension of your driver’s license if you accumulate too many within a particular time period. Challenging a ticket now can potentially save you a great deal of money through the years and can save you from the extreme hassle of losing your driver's license.Traffic Offense Attorney Serving Bellingham, Washington
