Regular people with good jobs, lives and families are arrested every day for driving under the influence in Washington State.  Most people are not aware that drinking as little as one glass of wine, or consuming THC many hours before driving can result in an arrest for DUI.

Many people in Washington are now being arrested for driving under the influence of prescription drugs like Ambien, Oxycodone, Oxycontin, and even drugs like Wellbutrin and Zoloft, or drugs like marijuana, sometimes in combination with alcohol or other drugs and sometimes alone.

Having a skilled attorney who knows the law, equipment and procedures relied on by law enforcement in DUI cases is the best thing you can do to have a fighting chance when facing the harsh potential consequences associated with a conviction for driving under the influence.

Whether you have been accused of driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs, you need a lawyer who is able to take a thorough approach, from walking the client through proceedings in a careful and detailed way, to mounting a technical defense and attacking the validity of the state’s evidence.  In Washington State, having nearly any drug in your system can result in a DUI charge and prosecutors often fail to understand  which drugs have intoxicating effects and which drugs do not.  We have handled cases involving Ambien, anti-depressants, blood pressure medications, and other substances with various medical applications and varying effects or entirely absent effects on one’s state of mind and ability to drive.

Recently, the Washington legislature has passed a bill which creates severe collateral consequences for a second qualifying offense under Washington’s DUI statute. While there is some ambiguity in the statute, and it may well be vulnerable to attack as unconstitutional, on its face the statute would result in loss of gun rights for people convicted after being charged with a second DUI in seven years, potentially even where the conviction is a reduced charge or treatment program. Although the statute may eventually be challenged and may not pass constitutional muster, in the meantime, having a knowledgeable and aggressive attorney to protect you from Draconian collateral consequences is a must.

We understand the law, and DUI science, and we know how to protect your rights when faced with unfair and arbitrary or capricious charges of driving under the influence.  This is your life and you deserve a great defense.

Whether your focus is fighting the charge or minimizing the damage, we’re here to do what we need to do to fight for the results you need.
