Kevin R. Cole is an experienced Seattle attorney who practices in the areas of speeding and traffic ticket defense, criminal law, and personal injury law. He has been a lawyer for over 20 years, and he has represented clients in Washington State District, Municipal and Superior Courts, the Washington Court of Appeals, and the Washington Supreme Court. He regularly travels to courts in King, Pierce, and Snohomish Counties.
Having been an attorney for many years, and having represented people from all walks of life and a wide range of income levels, Kevin has a good idea about what constitutes a reasonable and fair attorney fee for clients in the various kinds of cases he handles.
For a typical speeding infraction case in King, Pierce, or Snohomish County, Kevin charges $200.00, and he waives his fee if, at the contested hearing, the Court enters an order finding that his client committed a speeding infraction. He does not waive his fee if the speeding ticket is dismissed, or if it is amended to a non-moving violation, or if the case is resolved with a deferred finding. Kevin's fee for traffic ticket defense is higher in other counties that are farther from his office.
Kevin's fees in criminal cases depend on the nature of the charge and the amount of work he anticipates the case will require. Kevin has defended persons against charges ranging from misdemeanors such as driving under the influence and reckless driving, to serious felonies, including homicide. He has been part of the defense teams in two capital murder cases in which the defendants were spared the death penalty. And he has won the reversal of a murder conviction in the Washington Supreme Court. Whether a criminal case involves driving under the influence or reckless driving, or something more serious, Kevin has the experience to help.
For personal injury cases, Kevin's attorney fee is typically one-third of his client's total monetary recovery. Kevin helps people who have been injured as a result of other persons’ negligence. For example, he has represented a married couple who were injured by a corrections officer who was driving drunk, and he has helped represent a man whose arm was severed in an industrial accident.
