I have been asked a number of time by prospective clients why should I hire the Law Offices of Dan Samas to fight my ticket in a situation where the ticket amount is less than the cost of attorney representation.
Here are the facts. Drivers with a one-car, single-driver policy who had one moving violation on their driving record paid on average 18 percent more for car insurance (approximately $200 more annually) than drivers with no violations. Drivers with two moving violations paid 34 percent more for insurance (approximately $380 more annually), and drivers with three violations had their insurance premiums increase 53 percent (approximately $600 more annually) when compared to drivers who had a clean driving record.
These are not my statistics as they were cited in an article by Forbes (http://blogs.forbes.com/moneybuilder/2011/06/02/the-true-cost-of-a-speeding-ticket/) and Insurance.com (http://www.insurance.com/auto-insurance/saving-money/car-insurance-violations.html). The important thing to keep in mind is that WA traffic tickets will remain on your driving record for three years so essentially you can estimate the total cost of having a ticket go on your record by tripling the dollar amounts cited above. Hiring an experienced traffic ticket attorney to fight your ticket can actually save you hundreds of dollars, so don't just look at the potential penalty listed on your ticket.
If you received a ticket that you are determined to fight, give me a call for a free consultation or visit my site www.seattletrafficandspeedingtickets.us I will work hard to help you.
As an experienced traffic ticket attorney, my client’s metro Seattle traffic tickets often are dismissed. If your traffic ticket is not dismissed, the Law Offices of Dan Samas can often arrange for a reduction to a non-moving violation so the ticket will not increase your insurance rates.
