  • “If at any point you find yourself in the need of a professional in Robert's line of work, I cannot urge you enough to contact him and at least have the initial meeting.”

    - Chris
  • “Rob treated my case as if I was his only client, I could tell he put a lot of thought into everything he did to support me.”

    - Troy
  • “I hired Rob to represent me and it was the best decision I believe I could have made. He actually won the initial DOL hearing for me (which is rare I understand now), meaning I didn't lose my license for 90 days as most charged people do.”

Dedicated to Exceptional DUI, DWI & Criminal Defense

When you hire Veitch Ault & Associates, you deal one on one with your own lawyer rather than getting passed on to a Junior Attorney. In addition to reaching the resolution most favorable for our clients, we feel responsible for our clients’ piece-of-mind along the way as well. Every one of our clients is given their attorney’s personal cell number and is told to call, text, or e-mail any time they have questions. If your lawyer can’t get back to you right away for any reason, you will hear back within 24 hours, if not sooner.

Our attorneys are certified in administering the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration’s (NHTSA) Field Sobriety Tests (FST). They have been trained in the process and scoring of the physical tests you may have had to perform. Unless these physical tasks—which are designed for failure—are administered properly, their validity is “compromised.” Thus, the smallest details regarding these tests can be of utmost importance. Contact us now so we can start investigating your case right away!

Have a DUI Question?

Explore Our FAQ
  • If I hire an attorney, does that mean that the case will go to trial?

    Not necessarily. The vast majority of DUI cases do not go to trial. Whether or not your case will go to trial depends on far too many factors to list here.

  • In Washington State, if my license gets suspended for a DUI arrest or conviction, can I drive for work?

    As of January 1, 2009, anyone suspended for a DUI arrest or conviction is eligible for an "IGNITION INTERLOCK LICENSE." Further, one may be eligible to drive "employer-owned vehicle" for work purposes if they apply for an "Employer Exemption."

  • My breath/blood alcohol reading was below the legal limit. Do I have anything to worry about?

    Possibly. In the State of Washington, even if your reading is below the legal limit or there are no alcohol results, the police and prosecuting attorney will proceed if they believe that there is sufficient evidence to show that even though your alcohol concentration was below the legal limit, that your ability to drive was appreciably affected by alcohol, thus charging you with a DUI. This opinion will be based upon the officer's observations and the tests that he/she conducted. Remember, the officer arrested you because he/she felt that your ability to drive was impaired so DUI charges may still be a very real possibility.
