Our Mission & Qualifications
Penalties for DUI vary from county to county in Washington. In some areas, the laws are so strict that you could face jail time. It does not matter what you said or did at the time of your arrest, it is always worth speaking with an attorney to find out how you can dismiss or reduce the charges. Our firm always fights for the dismissal of charges against you. If at any point this seems like an impossible goal, we aim to reduce charges so that they have less of an impact on the client’s life.
Our Bellevue DUI defense lawyers have several relevant qualifications that make them stand out from other DUI attorneys. We are certified in administering the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration’s (NHTSA) Field Sobriety Tests (FST), members of the National College of DUI Defense, and are ARIDE (Advanced Roadside Impairment Detection Enforcement) Certified. We have extensively studied the science behind field sobriety testing and breathalyzer tests to better defend our clients.
If arrested for DUI by an officer employed by either the Seattle Police Department or Port of Seattle, your case will be filed in Seattle Municipal Court. The court is located at 600 5th Avenue in Seattle. While the municipal court judges occasionally rotate, currently hearing DUI cases as of this writing are Judge Catherine McDowell, Judge Damon Shadid, Judge Faye Chess-Prentice, Judge Anita Crawford-Willis, Judge Adam Eisenberg, and Judge Willie Gregory.
