Kirkland DUI & Criminal Defense Lawyers
40+ Years of Quality Legal Counsel in Washington
Drunk driving laws can be very messy. In the state’s relentless quest to end drunk driving, Washington has created an overzealous police force that does not always maintain the rights entitled to those accused of DUI. That’s where Veitch Ault & Associates comes in. Our Kirkland DUI and criminal defense attorneys are strong advocates for individuals charged with drunk or intoxicated driving as well as other misdemeanor crimes. We thoroughly investigate cases using scientific evidence gathering to create a full picture of what really happened the night our clients were arrested.
If you need a DUI defense lawyer in Kirkland, call (425) 307-5515 now. We offer free consultations to all potential clients.
Criminal Cases We Handle at Veitch Ault & Associates
DUI charges do not always come alone. Depending on the circumstances of your arrest you could be facing additional penalties. Worse still, in the confusion of the arrest, many people have a slew of information shouted at them and do not fully comprehend everything being said. At Veitch Ault & Associates, our team will run through all the charges with you and give you a clear idea of where you stand, and how you defend yourself.
We also defend against misdemeanor crimes such as:
- Violation of no-contact or PFA orders
- Theft of under a $250 value
- Reckless endangerment
- Reckless driving
- Prostitution and/or patronizing a prostitute
- Negligent driving
- Hit and runs
- Driving with a suspended license
- Domestic violence
- Criminal trespass/criminal mischief
- And more
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 Seattle. While Seattle Municipal Court judges occasionally rotate, currently hearing DUI cases in Kirkland are Judge Catherine McDowell, Judge Damon Shadid, Judge Faye Chess-Prentice, Judge Anita Crawford-Willis, Judge Adam Eisenberg, and Judge Willie Gregory.
Because there are stringent pre-trial conditions of release at DUI arraignment hearings, we highly recommend hiring an experienced Kirkland DUI attorney well before your first hearing to give your case a fighting chance.
You Do Not Have to Fight Alone
The difference between a Kirkland DUI defense lawyer and a public defender is that a dedicated counselor will have training and skills specific to DUI litigation. At Veitch Ault & Associates, our team has time to speak with clients and fully understand their situation. We look into every detail that could be used to your advantage. With a professional attorney, you can feel more confident in your chances and have a better shot at protecting your future.
