A Washington traffic ticket isn’t something that you can just ignore without consequences. There are many good reasons to stick up for yourself and fight the ticket, and there are even more good reasons to get attorney Scott Leist to do it for you.
Reason One: To save money. Admitting guilt and paying the ticket is a short-term solution with long-term financial consequences. With a traffic ticket on your record, you will pay more for your car insurance—sometimes for as long as seven years. The more expensive payments can add up to thousands of dollars in extra costs over time.
There are other, hidden costs too. If you are applying for life insurance, your driving record can also affect the amount of coverage for which you qualify. And the costs add up: Having a ticket on your driving record could mean losing the opportunity to challenge another ticket in the future. If you happen to get another ticket, you won’t be able to argue that your driving record is clean.
Reason Two: To save time. We sometimes tell clients that hiring us is like launching a missile. How? You’ll make the decision to hire our firm, and then we’ll take care of everything else. For issues related to traffic and speeding tickets, you won’t have to take time off work to deal with courthouse hassles or appear before a judge. Attorney Scott Leist will appear for you, handling everything so that you don’t have to.
Reason Three: To give yourself peace of mind. Attorney Scott Leist is a former Seattle Police officer and long time prosecutor who used to write the tickets and prosecute the offenses he now defends against. As an experienced pro who has seen both sides of the courtroom, he can tell you: There is simply no substitute for experience.
When you hire someone who has handled thousands of investigations and trials, from initial police involvement all the way through appeal, you gain peace of mind. You can be assured that the matter is being handled by somebody who knows the ins and outs of the system. Nothing will be overlooked. The best possible results will be achieved.
Reason Four: To avoid aggravation. Fighting your traffic or speeding ticket can be a hassle, especially if you’ve never done it before. Hiring a lawyer is the best way to avoid the aggravation that can come from dealing with court paperwork, court appearances and judges.
