Were you or a loved one recently pulled over and arrested for drunk driving in Washington? If so, it’s very important that you speak with a knowledgeable DUI attorney from our team today.
Our drunk driving lawyers understand how frustrating it can be to face a serious criminal charge like a DUI/DWI. Many of our clients are usually scared and confused when they initially contact our office. They usually inform us of what happened to their friends and family members who were charged with a DUI. While it may give you solace to seek guidance from someone who has actually been charged with drunk driving, this can be a bad idea.
Every Washington DUI/DWI case is unique. What happened in your loved ones case may not happen in yours. That’s why it’s important to speak with a Washington DUI lawyer who has the skills, experience, and knowledge to help you contest your drunk driving charge.
There are many factors that will determine how your DUI/DWI case will be resolved. One of those factors includes the reason for your arrest. In Washington, a police officer can arrest you if he had any suspicion to believe you were driving under the influence of alcohol or other drugs.
Our DUI lawyers will aggressively fight to determine if the arresting police officer had probable cause to pull you over. Some reasons that may have led to your arrest include:
- Reckless driving
- Smell of alcohol or other drugs
- Slurred speech
- Failed sobriety tests
- Failed breathalyzer test
- Physical control of your vehicle
While most of these actions are associated with drunk driving, not everyone who performs these actions is actually drunk at the time of their arrest. There are many other factors that will determine how your DUI/DWI case will be handled in court. That’s why we take an aggressive approach to help the prosecutors understand what really happened the night that you were pulled over and arrested for drunk driving.
Don’t speak to anyone about your DUI charge until you hire a DUI attorney.
Immediately after your arrest, it’s in your best interests to call an attorney. In most cases, the arresting police officer and other law enforcement officials will try to ask you questions that can be used to incriminate you in court. At the time of your arrest, your Miranda rights should have been read to you. One of those Miranda rights states you have the right to remain silent. We highly recommend that you take advantage of those rights and don’t speak to law enforcement personnel or anyone else until you call a lawyer to discuss your case.Why You Shouldn’t Plead Guilty to a DUI Charge
Many drunk driving offenders accept a plea bargain or plead guilty after being charged with a DUI. They feel that there is no hope. While it may be appealing for them to plead guilty and move on with their lives, they don’t realize they are doing more harm than good. A DUI conviction can lead to:
- Expensive fees and fines
- Mandatory jail time
- Restricted travel to Canada
- License suspension/revocation
- And much more
In addition to paying expensive fines and losing your freedom, a DUI conviction may also affect your ability to get a job or lease an apartment in some cases. That’s why it’s important to hire a Washington DUI attorney who will provide you with the necessary guidance you need to challenge your charge.
