Criminal Traffic Offenses

Some vehicle related offenses are charged as criminal offense, including hit & run, reckless driving, driving with a suspended license as others. These offenses can lead to jail or prison time, heavy fines and you could have your driver's license revoked for years in certain cases, as well as face the future as a convicted felon.

Civil Traffic Offenses

Traffic tickets can create serious problems, such as increased insurance rates, license suspension and other repercussions. You can fight back, whether you are dealing with a ticket for speeding, reckless driving or other traffic tickets.

Drug Crimes

State lawmakers have passed statutes that heavily punish certain types of drug crimes, and a conviction can have very serious consequences, including a long term of incarceration, forfeiture of assets and heavy fines, as well as leaving you with a felony conviction on your criminal record, heavily impacting your future opportunities. If you are facing criminal accusations involving drug sales, distribution, possession with intent to deliver, possession of marijuana, prescription fraud, VUSCA crimes, or possession of drug paraphernalia, you need a defense lawyer immediately.

Violent Crimes

The penalties in cases of violent crime are extremely severe in Washington. If you are facing criminal accusations of domestic violence, assault, harassment or other violent crime, immediate actions for the defense must be taken.

Communication was brief, straightforward, easy to understand, and without a typical condescending tone you can sometimes experience from attorneys on top of their field. Correspondence was timely and always affective. Any in need of criminal defense, should have a conversation with Mr. Blair, and you will quickly see and feel, no further contacts, referrals, or phone calls need be made. The money and time that can be saved by streamlining future contact and collateral damage in the sentencing process will far and away be worth every penny of the fee structure. Thank you very very much Mark Blair. N.Mark French
Sara Kim of BlairKim is a great attorney. I had never before had representation or dealt with the legal system and she made it very easy for me. She converted the legalese into laymans terms for me and helped me to understand the steps of the process. When I hesitated on certain decisions, Sara gave me the confidence and encouragement to proceed – especially since it was most beneficial to me in the long run. Sara is very straightforward and professional while also being personable and pleasant to deal with. Tamara
Sara Kim was the perfect lawyer for our situation. We were determined not to involve the courts in our divorce. Within the first 30 minutes of consultation, Sara proposed an equitable formula for division of property which we used to negotiate an agreement that felt fair to both of us. Our flat fee arrangement with Sara covered the filing of paperwork which alleviated much pressure for us during a very stressful time. I highly recommend Sara for her flexibility, professionalism, and efficiency. Carrie
