Tacoma WA DUI Defense
Compared to other states, DUI laws and penalties in Washington are very harsh. With the police and charging prosecutors aggressively working to find evidence and use it against you, it can easily become an unfair fight if you have inadequate legal representation. The legal system, rules of evidence, and the science behind DUIs are all complex. A good DUI lawyer can use the criminal justice system to successfully negotiate in your favor.
WA DUI Arrests are Time Sensitive
After a drinking and driving arrest in Tacoma, WA or another jurisdiction in Washington State, you have 20 days to request a hearing with the Department of Licensing to contest your driver’s license suspension. During this hearing, your attorney will attempt to save your driver’s license. In addition, misdemeanor or felony criminal charges will be filed in the jurisdiction that you were arrested for an alcohol or drug DUI. Our firm includes contesting the license suspension case as part of the overall defense that each client can expect.
