Washington DUI lawyers fighting the good fight one case at a time.

Being arrested for DUI and the ramifications of it is extremely confusing. This is especially problematic when there are deadlines and serious consequences. It is absolutely vital that an experienced attorney be contacted as soon as possible after the arrest to discuss and explain what you will be facing.

Our Washington State DUI attorneys are here for a free consultation – ready to answer all of your questions, and believe us, you will have questions even if you don’t know what they are yet.  We've handled hundreds of drunk driving cases throughout Western Washington over the last decade.

In Washington, a DUI is most commonly charged as a gross misdemeanor. This means you are facing a maximum penalty of 354 days in jail and a $5,000 fine. Additionally, a conviction comes with a license suspension, an ignition interlock requirement, probation, court ordered drug & alcohol treatment, increased insurance rates, and more! A conviction will also impact your ability to go to other countries like Canada and also drive as a part of your job.

You will likely face harsher consequences if:

  • You are under 21 years old
  • You have previously been arrested for DUI
  • You blew over .15
  • You had passengers under 16 years old.
  • There was an accident
  • You refused to provide a breath sample

Many people do not realize when they are arrested for a DUI, they are actually facing two separate cases. Most people know they will be charged criminally, as described above, but do not realize they the Department of Licensing will attempt to suspend their license.

This is especially important to be aware of because there are deadlines that need to be met soon after the arrest if you wish to fight the suspension. Our offices will be able to help you understand the confusing world of the DOL.

Even if you feel like there is no hope, it is important to be represented by an experienced attorney.  They can explain the confusing process for you and make sure you do not get yourself into even greater trouble. In addition, they will make sure your rights are protected and work to minimize the consequences of your alleged mistake.
