If you have been arrested for driving under the influence or physical control in Snohomish County, you need a 5-star DUI law firm for your defense.
We are that firm. We know the prosecutors and judges that handle Snohomish DUI cases, having years of experience in all of the district and municipal courts of Snohomish County.
A DUI or Physical Control is a serious crime; the penalties reflect that. We are here to give you hope though because we have had tremendous success in getting the prosecutors to see the problems we have found in their assigned cases.
As a result, they often agree to reduce the DUI charge to a non-DUI, allowing our clients to avoid jail, ignition interlock restrictions, and other severe penalties of a DUI conviction.
The penalties of a first offense DUI or Physical Control conviction include:
As if the criminal penalties are not enough, society views those convicted of DUI or physical control very negatively.
When an officer arrests someone for DUI or Physical Control and they refuse the breath test or test over the legal limit, the department of licensing is notified.
The DOL then notes the DUI on the driver’s record and sends the driver notice of the date that they have to stop driving due to suspension or revocation of their driver’s license.
To challenge the action, the driver may request a hearing with DOL, but time is of the essence–the hearing request must be postmarked within 7 days of the date of arrest.
We are very experienced in DOL hearings. We extensively prepare for these telephonic hearings, as they are difficult to win.
We go so far as to obtain statistics on every hearing examiner’s decision in every case they decide.
This knowledge enables us to tailor our defense to a particular hearing examiner’s tendency to favor that defense.
If you prefer not to request a hearing (the DOL charges people to have these hearings) there is a temporary restricted license for which you may apply.
Give us a call and we will tell you everything you need to know to get the restricted license, including giving you tips on how to get it quickly so that you have it in hand the day your suspension or revocation goes into effect.
