If you received a traffic violation for reckless driving, improper lane usage, speeding, running a red light or stop sign, driving under the influence, or driving on an expired suspended or revoked license, you must defend your rights, your driving privileges, and record.
In Washington State, traffic violations are classified as a civil sentence. Civil violations come in two forms: moving and non-moving.
As the name suggests, a moving violation is one that involves a vehicle in motion. Moving violations include (but are not limited to):
Those are merely a few examples. Common non-moving violations in Washington State include parking violations, equipment violations, and paperwork violations. This is by no means a complete list. The potential consequences you may face if you are charged with a moving violation can therefore be wide-ranging.
That doesn’t need to happen. The manner in which a qualified Everett traffic violation attorney will defend you can vary depending on the specific violation you have been charged with.
Regardless, it is always our goal to minimize the degree to which your insurance rates are affected by a charge. By hiring a lawyer in these circumstances, you may potentially save a lot of money in the long run by avoiding insurance penalties.
Whether you live in the Everett area or were passing through from Oregon, Canada, or elsewhere, if you face a traffic violation, the consequences can be considerable.
They may include fines and other such penalties depending on the severity of your violation.
Again, your insurance rates may also increase if you are committing a violation. We can help you guard against this.
Traffic violation charges are based on complicated police procedures conducted by police officers who often lack the proper training.
At Russell & Hill, PLLC, we can fight your traffic violation by examining the circumstances of your charges, using your prior record of responsible driving and other factors to seek to have your charges reduced or dismissed. Our attorneys can argue for monitoring programs and treatment to reduce your penalties. We have a reputation for effective and aggressive representation with a continual eye for the best results for each client.
How we defend you will involve accounting for factors that are specific to your case. For example, perhaps you were pulled over for speeding. Maybe you didn’t realize you were driving in excess of the speed limit because your speedometer was defective when you were pulled over. If this is the case, we could potentially bring this up when representing you.
That’s just one example. While an attorney can’t promise a specific outcome, your chances of having your sentence reduced and preventing a violation from affecting your insurance will be much greater if you have a lawyer on your side.
