Negligent Driving Success

Today, Ashbach Law Offices, LLC had a client’s criminal allegation of Negligent Driving in the First Degree (a misdemeanor) reduced to a traffic infraction, and the client’s other traffic infraction was dismissed as part of the agreement. This took place in Snohomish County District Court, Evergreen Division, located in Monroe, Washington.

Negligent Driving is defined as “the failure to exercise ordinary care, and is the doing of some act that a reasonably careful person would not do under the same or similar circumstances or the failure to do something that a reasonably careful person would do under the same or similar circumstances.”
The main difference between Negligent Driving First degree and Negligent Driving Second degree is having exhibited effects of consuming alcohol (for the first degree allegation).

Such a result not only saves our client’s criminal history, keeping a clean record, avoiding jail time and large fines, but also saves large amounts of money in insurance payments over the years.

Great results such as this are what we fight for every day at Ashbach Law Offices, LLC. If you need help with a Negligent Driving accusation, please call or text us at 360.474.7872 (or email to learn what we can do for you.
