Fees

Mr. Sheehan charges flat fees, not hourly fees.  Flat fees provide more certainty and, in many cases, better value for clients.  When an attorney charges hourly fees, clients do not know how much the attorney’s services will cost them until the end of the case.  With flat fees, clients know exactly how much Mr. Sheehan’s services will cost them up front, when they hire him.

Furthermore, when an attorney charges hourly fees, clients worry that they will be charged for unnecessary work.  With flat fees, clients pay the same amount no matter how many hours the attorney works on their cases.

Traffic Infractions

Mr. Sheehan charges a flat fee of $300 to fight a non-accident traffic infraction* issued in King, Pierce or Snohomish County**. Examples include Speeding, Failure to Stop/Yield, Failure to Signal, Unsafe Lane Change, H.O.V. Lane Violation, Following Too Close, No Vehicle Insurance and many others.  Mr. Sheehan charges different fees for accident cases and Negligent Driving cases. (see below).

*Mr. Sheehan charges $300 to fight one (1) such infraction.  If you received a ticket with more than one (1) infraction listed, please call or e-mail Mr. Sheehan to discuss the appropriate fee.

**Mr. Sheehan charges more for traffic infractions issued outside of King, Pierce or Snohomish counties (because he must drive longer distances to appear in those courts).  If you received a ticket outside of King, Pierce or Snohomish counties, please call or e-mail Mr. Sheehan to discuss the appropriate fee.

Accident cases often involve more complex legal and factual issues, more evidence (for example, photographs, diagrams, etc.) and witnesses and thus, require more preparation. For a traffic infraction that was issued as the result of an accident, Mr. Sheehan charges a flat fee of $350.00.

Negligent Driving cases often involve more complex legal and factual issues, more evidence (for example, photographs, diagrams, etc.) and witnesses and thus, require more preparation. Furthermore, a Negligent Driving infraction carries with it more severe penalties for the driver.  For Negligent Driving infractions, Mr. Sheehan charges a flat fee of $450.
