A clairvoyant!
I have hired Fred to represent me for a dozen traffic tickets over the year, ranging from speeding to negligent. For each one, he provided a shockingly accurate prognosis as to the outcome of the case. In each one, he was able to keep my driving record clean, by either dismissing the ticket entirely or amending it to a non-moving violation.

Unbelievable Service!
Mr. Hopkins and his office were wonderful to work with. I felt that our issues were immediately handled and they were very clear on what we needed to provide to help the case move forward as quickly as possible. Mr. Hopkins also did not give us any false hopes, but was straight-forward about the potential legalities involved. He ultimately led us to a fair resolution of the situation. The help was greatly appreciated!

Great experience when working with Fred!
It has been a great experience when working with Mr. Hopkins. The entire process has been communicated really clearly to me even though I am totally new to handle the speeding ticket. The end result was totally satisfying. I have the peace in mind for the entire time and feel really good about it. I would definitely recommend this lawyer to handle the similar case to others.

Speeding ticket dismissed
Fred asked for all the details he required and appeared on my behalf in the court and got my speeding (10 over) ticket dismissed. He made the whole process totally hassle-free. Would definitely recommend him.

Working with Fred Hopkins was an extremely smooth process. He went above and beyond on every occasion keeping me informed of status as well as being extremely accommodating in taking my case even though I was out on vacation and could not be reachable for much of the time. I really appreciate his professionalism as well as his capability in getting my traffic ticket dismissed completely. Thank you again Fred!

Thank you very much to Mr. Hopkins for representing my traffic infraction case
I got a speeding ticket and was desperately needing someone's help. Mr. Hopkins was referred to me by my co-worker at Microsoft. He happens to be part of in-network lawyers covered by MSFT group legal plan. The process of engaging group legal and going through O’Brien Law Firm was pretty straightforward and simple. Mr. Hopkins's legal assistant was very easy to work with. She’s very responsive and knowledgeable. End result --> The judge DISMISSED my speeding ticket Thank you very much, Mr. Hopkins.

Highly recommend for traffic-related infractions
I have hired Fred Hopkins at O’Brien Law Firm on two separate occasions for contesting speeding tickets. He got both of them dismissed. The entire paperwork was completed over email and I didn't even have to go to his office. When the case hearing was done Fred called me to communicate the results. It has been great experience to work with Fred Hopkins and his assistant. I would highly recommend Fred for traffic-related infractions.

Excellent traffic lawyer in the Greater Seattle area with consistent results
I have hired Fred on two separate occasions for contesting traffic tickets - one for allegedly jumping a traffic light on red, and the other for speeding over 20mph. He got the first one mitigated and the second one dismissed. Apart from being pleased with both the results, I found Fred to be very responsive, upfront, efficient, and capable, which made the process very stress-free for me. He has a ton of experience in dealing with traffic cases and handling them in the Greater Seattle area courts, which I found very reassuring. His office staff is also very efficient. The entire paperwork for both my cases was completed over email; I didn't even have to go to their office! Fred called me when the case hearing was done with the result and his assistant followed up with an email on both occasions. I would recommend Fred highly for traffic-related cases - he came highly recommended from my co-workers at my workplace, and the praise is well-deserved.

Fred Hopkins - recommended!
It has been great experiences to work with Fred Hopkins at O’Brien Law Firm. I was caught speeding when I was trying to move from left lane to right so that I would not find myself in line for the I-90 on ramp. When I contacted Fred, he listened to my case attentively, and explained to me all options and result that can possibly come out so that I can set the right expectation. Although my case is not complicated (no accident, and I have clean record), Fred treated my case professionally. e.g. When Fred tells me he would call back at a certain time, he always keeps his promise. Michele is the firm's legal assistant and works with Fred. She is the person you communicate with most. I found Michele very responsive and crisp in providing the necessary information to move your case forward. I am happy the judge made a decision in my favor. I have been very careful at that junction since January, and always remind myself to be a responsible driver.

Best traffic lawyer in the Issaquah/Sammamish area!
This lawyer is a magician. I hired him because I got a 2nd degree negligent driving ticket, and he was able to get the ticket completely dismissed for less than it would have cost to pay the ticket. If you ever have a traffic infraction in Washington, Fred will take care of you!

Fred is EXCELLENT every time!
Fred is the absolute best when it comes to managing traffic infractions. I won't ever use anyone else, and neither will my family!

Great service, great outcome
Mr. Hopkins was absolutely amazing as our attorney. He made the process so easy, was very knowledgeable, and was very successful in our case. I would definitely recommend him to family and friends and anyone looking to hire an attorney for speeding/traffic violations.

Excellent work!
I got my first speeding ticket at I-405 near Bellevue, WA. It was kind of stupid, because I was passing slow track when speed has already been slightly higher than limit. I started thinking about using a deferral, but colleges recommended me Mr.Hopkins. So I contacted him and asked if I have any chance in the court. He promised that odds are in my favor and he can take my case. Thanks to Fred judge dismissed my speeding infraction and I didn't use my deferral.

Very good experience
My first experience contesting speeding ticket with attorney and, honestly, Fred exceeded my expectations. He responded fairly quickly, explained all what's needed from me and what to expect. Next thing I heard from him was that my ticket was dismissed.
Posted by anonymous | January 15, 2014
Highly recommended
Really great experience of working with Mr. Hopkins and Michele, really a worry free process. All I need to do is to send several documents and today my ticket is dismissed! Highly recommended. :)

Recommended for Speeding Tickets
I used Fred Hopkins for a speeding ticket in Kirkland Court given in Medina neighborhood. Fred's process was very streamlined and it was very easy for me to follow all the steps. He took care of everything once I sent the docs to him and all I had to do was wait for the final verdict from the judge. Luckily he was able to get the ticket dismissed and nothing showed up on my record. I will recommend Fred for any traffic tickets in King County.

"Mr. Hopkins is a college of mine whom I frequently see in court. I have observed his courtroom work for a number of years, and know his knowledge of the field is deep as well as broad. He knows the judges, the proclivities of the prosecutors, and the law extremely well. He takes great care to address the needs of his clients. An excellent attorney."

Relationship: Opposing Counsel on matter
"I respect Fred's work so much that I seek his advice and send him referrals for traffic tickets. When I was a City Attorney for Seattle, I knew I always had to be on the top of my game if Fred was on the other side. He does an excellent job."
Wills and living wills Attorney | Apr 07

"Fred is a great lawyer who really cares about his clients. He is also an accomplished musician and an author. He wrote the definitive book about wills in Washington state (appropriately entitled Wills for Washington). He was a great guest on Legal Line with Bob Pittman (on KIRO Radio) and explains the law in plain English. You can count on Fred."
