Strong Defense Against DUI Charges

What Consequences Are Possible For A DUI?

A DUI or DWI charge is a very serious matter. In some cases, a car accident or personal injury may be involved. Every situation is unique, but I remain educated and up to speed on the complex issues and consequences of DUI laws. Know that you do not have to go through the DUI legal process alone — and doing so is borderline foolish. In fact, the severity of a DUI charge almost necessitates the need for the tough, but empathetic, representation that I provide.

The consequences of a DUI can be catastrophic. A DUI is considered a felony charge if during the last 10 years, five other charges have already been made against you. Today, a DUI or DWI charge can include a variety of harsh penalties, and some can be mandatory such as:

  • Expensive fines
  • Higher rate of car insurance or losing car insurance altogether
  • Jail time
  • Lasting criminal record
  • License revoked or suspended
  • Electronic home monitoring
  • Probation
  • Counseling

In Washington, the legal threshold is .08 of blood alcohol content, which can result from the consumption of just one drink. I position a defense that examines every detail of the case. Sometimes, evidence can be suppressed and can result in the charge being dropped altogether. In other cases, your compelling story of who you are will result in a reduction of the charge or outright dismissal. Reduced sentencing may be available through participation in counseling programs.
