Criminal Traffic Offenses

Bellevue Reckless Driving Attorney

When it comes to criminal traffic offenses, such as reckless driving, many police officers tend to exaggerate the specific facts of the case. I have cross-examined scores of police officers over the years and I know how to draw out inconsistencies and expose exaggerations to create reasonable doubt.

I'm John Polito, a lawyer in Bellevue, Washington, with nearly 25 years of experience defending clients charged with all types of criminal traffic offenses in Seattle, Redmond, Kirkland, Issaquah, Tacoma,, and other cities in western Washington state, including:

  • Reckless driving/negligent driving
  • Vehicular homicide
  • Driving without insurance
  • Driving after suspension of driver's license
  • Vehicular manslaughter/vehicular assault/vehicular homicide
  • Hit and run
  • DUI charges

There are classes available to people who are habitual traffic offenders. If I believe you have a problem with road rage or negligent driving, I may be able to mitigate penalties by helping you enroll in a class. However, I am not going to enroll you in a class just to make my job as a lawyer easier.

I am aggressive with criminal traffic offense cases. The fact that local prosecutors know that I will try cases greatly enhances my ability to negotiate a favorable plea disposition with them. They know that if I decide to try a traffic offense case, there is a significantly higher risk of a not-guilty verdict for my client.
