Redmond DUI & Criminal Defense Lawyers
Learn How to Defend Against Your Charges
In Washington, if you are found driving while intoxicated it does not matter if the police pulled you over legally or not—you can be prosecuted for DUI. The state has taken every measure it can to take down anyone accused of drunk driving, which means you will need quality legal assistance from a Redmond DUI and criminal defense attorney to defend yourself.
At Veitch Ault & Associates, we utilize aggressive litigation techniques to achieve the best possible outcome for our clients. Our Redmond lawyers will walk you through every step of the legal process to ensure that everything is done correctly and in your best interests.
Criminal Charges We Defend Against
While Veitch Ault & Associates focuses strongly on DUI defense and would consider that our area of proficiency, we are able to defend you against a variety of misdemeanor charges as well.
Charges we can help you fight include those related to:
- Boating under the influence (BUI)
- Reckless endangerment
- Domestic violence
- Driving with a suspended license
Things to Know When Arrested for DUI
Be courteous and respectful to a police officer during your arrest, even if you feel you are being harassed. Anything you say or do could be used against you, but by acting like a model citizen you have a better chance of defending yourself. If you were mistreated by law enforcement, you may even be able to bring charges against them later. It is always better to resist the urge to fight back.
It is the state’s responsibility to prove that someone was intoxicated when operating a vehicle. Even if there was a field sobriety test, a skilled attorney can challenge the results and reduce or dismiss charges. Our lawyers are trained and certified in the same breath tests most Washington law officials use and know how to pinpoint and demonstrate margin of error to a court.
Redmond DUI Courts
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, located at 600 5th Avenue in Seattle. While the judges tend to rotate, the ones currently hearing DUI cases as of 2021 are Judge Catherine McDowell, Judge Damon Shadid, Judge Faye Chess-Prentice, Judge Anita Crawford-Willis, Judge Adam Eisenberg, and Judge Willie Gregory.
We know these courts and how hard the prosecution can fight. Therefore, we highly recommend retaining legal representation well before your first hearing even begins. Feel free to contact us to learn more during a free, no-obligation case evaluation.
