  • Will I be able to get License back if I make payments on unpaid tickets?

    My driving license was suspended due to $3000 in unpaid tickets from 3 years ago. I got a new job now and can slowly pay off the tickets, however they have already been sent to a collection agency. Do collection agencies offer payment plans like t...

    Justin’s Answer

    If you enter into a payment plan with the collection agencies that handle court fees then they will notify the department of licensing that you have entered a payment plan and then you can reinstate your license. If, however, you fall behind on your payment plans then your license will be re-suspended. Most of the collection agencies won't negotiate the balance much (if any) since they are collecting on behalf of the court and don't have the same authority to negotiate lower amounts that are typical with debts owed to companies.

  • Will I get in trouble with WA if I have a drug test positive for marijuana use while on house arrest?

    You should review the judgment and sentence you were given by the court. If it isn't clear then you should talk with your attorney and if you are extremely worried about it you could consider asking the court for approval. Many judges in WA don't allow the use of marijuana despite it being legal.

    I'm very sorry to hear about your loss. Medical malpractice cases ultimately come down to a battle of the experts so you will need to have a doctor who is willing to testify that the treatment was below the medical standard of care.

    Most attorneys will represent your family on a contingency basis meaning that the attorney will only get paid if he/she is successful.

  • I got a trffic citation and the officer say that i have dwsl in washington how to go about getting this cleared up asap

    so how do i talk with attorney to turn myself in and get my wdl back what is the first step...

    Justin’s Answer

    Based on your question I am assuming the officer says you have a DWLS 3rd degree. If so, you need to find out why your license was suspended. You most likely have unpaid tickets. Go to the department of licensing and ask them for your driver's license abstract. This will tell you what outstanding obligations you have. Once you pay the court (or collection agency) that you owe money to then you can get your license re-instated through the DOL. If you are charged with DWLS 3rd you will need to address that criminal charge; the charge does not disappear when you have re-instated your license.

  • Is traffic school considered a dererral

    I got a ticket for going 14 miles over on I-90 by ritzville, I am considering asking for traffic school to keep the ticket off my record, is that considered a deferred ticket?

    Justin’s Answer

    There are a few jurisdictions that require you do driving school to qualify for a deferral, but otherwise the deferral is a program most courts offer. If you pay that court's administrative fee and don't get another ticket for the prescribed period (usually 1 year) then the ticket will be dismissed.
