Kirkland DUI Defense

Call (425) 300-5566 Now for Your Consultation

Have you been arrested for drugged or drunk driving in King or Snohomish counties? If this is your first DUI charge, anyone who’s been through it can tell you without a doubt – it’s scary. Overeager police officers treat you like a criminal and in many cases you’ve been booked into the county jail. The penalties and long term implications of a DUI arrest are severe and for most people it’s pretty overwhelming. The government started building a case against you even before you were stopped, and it’s critical to get started on your defense right away.

Get a Former Prosecutor on Your Defense

What does it mean to have a former prosecutor on your defense team? It means that you are working with a legal professional who has real-world experience on the other side of the courtroom. When you have been charged with driving under the influence, there are a lot of things the police and the prosecutor need to do right. I know the procedures that the police have to follow, and I know how the prosecutor will build the case against you.

Armed with these invaluable insights, I can craft the strongest defense possible, one that anticipates the prosecution’s tactics and proactively defends against them. Find out how I use this insider knowledge to your advantage!

How To Get Help

Immediately after an arrest, you need to talk with an attorney about your situation

Trust me – you’ll feel a lot better. Beyond the flashing lights and handcuffs, the most stressful thing about a DUI arrest is really “what’s going to happen to me?” As your Kirkland DUI attorney, I can explain the DUI process, so that you can feel more assured and in control.

I offer a free one hour consultation
with three primary goals:

  • You tell me what happened
  • I explain how I can help
  • We discuss what you can expect from here

Tell me what happened: Not only do I need to know what’s going on, but it really helps cement the incident in your memory in case together we decide that you should testify in court later. Most people don’t remember everything because their encounter with the police is so stressful that they’re really just focused on getting through the situation and cooperating with the guy holding a badge and a gun.
