Experienced Washington Attorney Defends Clients Accused of Traffic Violations
Skilled lawyer helps drivers fight tickets in the Bellingham area
While many view traffic violations as minor nuisances, traffic tickets and moving violations have the power to wreak havoc on your life. Fees quickly mount, and points from tickets can cause your insurance premiums to skyrocket or result in a revoked or suspended license. At Douglas Hyldahl P.S., I don’t underestimate the seriousness of traffic violations. I work on your behalf to get the charges you face reduced or dismissed. My firm represents clients in the Bellingham area and throughout Washington.
Knowledgeable Washington litigator responds to a wide array of traffic offenses
Whether you are handed a criminal or civil charge for your alleged offense, you may face significant negative consequences if you plead guilty. Simply paying a fine rather than contesting the charge in court could come back to haunt you when your insurance bill arrives or when you get another ticket. A lawyer from Douglas Hyldahl P.S. can go to court and work to have your charges dropped or reduced to result in less serious penalties.

- Reckless driving
- Expired registration

- Failure to signal when changing lanes

Strategic counselor develops solid, evidence-backed defenses
I take a detail-oriented approach to traffic violation defense, examining every aspect of your case, including the police report, to see if the law enforcement officer violated standard procedures or failed to perform their duties as required. In addition, I will interview you to obtain as much information as possible regarding the circumstances surrounding your violation. In some cases, the wrong driver may be cited for a violation caused by another motorist. At Douglas Hyldahl P.S., I explore every scenario before determining the best course of action, and during trial I can question those who make accusations against you.
