Negotiating to Avoid Driver's License Suspension

While some traffic tickets are considered minor offenses, there are other traffic charges that can result, if you are convicted, in suspension of your driver's license. These offenses include:

  • Drunk driving/DUI
  • Hit and run involving an occupied (attended) vehicle
  • Reckless driving
  • Driving While License Revoked.

Suspension of your license may affect your job if you depend on your car to get to work. It may also lead to higher auto insurance rates for many years after the suspension.

There are a number of things an experienced Washington criminal defense lawyer may be able to do to avoid or reduce the suspension of your license.

Attorney John F. Segelbaum is experienced at negotiating with prosecutors for reduced charges that do not carry driver's license consequences, such as first or second-degree negligent driving, or noncriminal traffic infractions. In the case of hit and run accidents, you may be able to avoid conviction if you pay for property damage and bodily injuries caused in the accident.

Fighting Serious Consequences of Multiple Traffic Tickets

In general, while most traffic tickets for moving violations will not result in immediate suspension of your driver's license, if you collect enough tickets within a set period of time, your license may be suspended.

Attorney John F. Segelbaum can help you explore your options for fighting traffic tickets so you do not get to the point where your driver's license is threatened. For help with any traffic ticket or offense, contact John today.
