Infractions (Tickets) in Bellevue

Traffic Violation“Infractions” are what many commonly refer to as tickets. Infractions are different than crimes. Infractions do not have jail as a possible penalty, unlike crimes. That is one of the pluses.

Unfortunately, there are drawbacks to infractions as well. The burden of proof for the government is a lot lower with infractions. This means it is a lot easier for the government to prove their case against you. Another problem is the officer not having to appear to testify. Officers can simply submit a written report in lieu of their testimony, unless you specifically subpoena the officer.

Infractions are broken down into two different categories – traffic and non-traffic. Non-traffic are infractions not related to a vehicle. This would include noise ordinance violations and leash law violations. Traffic violations are infractions related to vehicles. Traffic violations are further broken down into two categories – moving and non-moving. Moving violations include speeding, failure to yield, and following too closely. Non-moving violations include seatbelt tickets, camera tickets, and parking tickets.

Washington does not have a point system when it comes to tickets. Instead, you can get a suspension for having too many moving violations within a certain period of time. If you get 4 moving violations within a year or 5 within two years, you face a suspension.

    Mr. Newcombe is an amazing lawyer. My DUI case seemed hopeless. But, he was relentless and just kept fighting and fighting. Right when all hope had seemed lost, we brainstormed and came to a conclusion that helped my case tremendously! I couldnt be happier with choosing Jason as my attorney.

    Jason has successfully contested and won 3 of my family's traffic tickets. His customer service is incredible and he even called me personally to tell me the outcome of the judge's decision. I would highly recommend Jason Newcombe to anyone in need of an attorney.

    Mr. Newcombe is a fantastic lawyer. When I first called his offices, I didn't know where to turn. I was facing a crazy criminal charge, and he ended up getting it completely dismissed. I cannot thank him and his staff enough. They will fight, not just roll over and try to get you to take a deal. I highly recommend him!

    From start to finish with the DUI process Jason Newcombe's office has been more than helpful, friendly, honest and respectful.From the beginning, Jason was on our side and fighting our battle with us. He flat out laid out our options honestly and gave us his opinion on which was the best way to go, but never made the decision for us. Jason is very professional yet personable. We are completely satisfied with our end result. Couldn't ask for a better lawyer to be on your side.

    I cannot thank Mr. Newcombe and his staff enough. They are awesome. When I first contacted his offices, I didn't know what to do. I was overwhelmed and confused. He did an amazing job, I highly recommend him! I had two cases, and he got both of them dismissed. If you are in trouble, do yourself a favor, give him a call.
