Q: I was arrested for DUI more than 10 years ago but was not convicted of DUI (it was reduced). I was recently arrested again for DUI, do I have any serious concerns at my arraignment?
A: Washington State law makes in mandatory for the Ignition Interlock Device to be installed in a vehicle within 5 days of a first court appearance should that individual have a prior DUI arrest. As a result you can expect a court to impose this restriction. If you choose not to drive or do not have a vehicle, the other option is inferior - the installation of a TAD bracelet (4 times more expensive). Additionally, Whatcom and Skagit Counties will place you on pretrial probation and Snohomish County will likely impose bail. It is imperative to plan ahead and talk with a DUI defense attorney.

We understand that being arrested for driving under the influence was not planned. We equally understand that hiring an attorney to fight your DUI was not budgeted for. In some instances, namely Whatcom County, Skagit County and Island County you will find yourself in court immediately following your DUI arrest and in need of a lawyer right away. The same is true for many cities including Bellingham, Mount Vernon, Burlington, Anacortes, Everett, Lynnwood, and Marysville, to name only a few. Knowing this we offer different payment plans and fees for all cases. We can keep our fees low by not charging our clients for services they do not need.
Further, we have set our retainers relatively low so to make us more affordable than comparable attorneys. All the while our clients can expect top quality legal representation but for reasonable fees. If you want the best DUI attorney at a price most people can actually afford please contact our office today to speak to one of our experienced Washington State DUI attorneys.
We have made our name and reputation with defending thousands of individuals charged with driving under the influence but by no means is this the only of law that we handle. We accept all Whatcom County traffic infraction matters, including speeding tickets and all moving violations. We provide affordable, legal counsel to the people who need it most. Complimentary consultations are offered so you are able to consult with one of our experienced attorneys to ensure the service we provide is right for you and your case.

Big news in Snohomish County - in a ground breaking ruling all Judges and Commissioners agreed that "[n]o Draeger breath tests will be admitted into evidence over objection of the non-moving party until the moving party has established the accuracy and reliability of the instrument."
If Jail is imposed by Bellingham Municipal Court, you have options but one of those options is not serving Jail in Whatcom County Jail. One option is the "Friendship Diversion" program which permits home monitoring in lieu of jail. However, if Jail is mandatory you will need to serve Jail in Yakima - go figure.

Following your DUI arrest you may have many questions and many more concerns. Certain counties in Western Washington, such as Whatcom, Skagit and Island require the person charged with DUI to appear in court immediately following the arrest. Many more cities, such as Bellingham, Everett, Marysville, Lynnwood, Bothell, and Mount Vernon, to name only a few, demand the defendant appear in court only days after the arrest.

The State of Washington is renowned for being tough on drunk drivers. The penalties in this state are some of the strictest in the entire country. Washington State enacted the first marijuana DUI law that specifically made it illegal to drive with 5 or more nanograms in the body. The State legislature is now talking about lowering the blood alcohol concentration level from 0.080 to 0.050. As you would expect, law enforcement, prosecuting attorneys and Judges are taking DUIs more seriously than ever and acting in accordance with the wishes of State of Washington politicians. If you have been arrested for driving under the influence it is more important than ever to retain a qualified and experienced Washington DUI attorney.
DUIs are taken very seriously by law enforcement in Snohomish County. Some of the most experienced and well trained prosecuting attorneys are located in Snohomish County and as a result every DUI charge is a battle. If you have been arrested for DUI in Snohomish County and the arresting officer was a Trooper or Sheriff you can expect a summons notifying you of a court date in approximately one month. If you were arrested by a local city officer in Everett, Lynnwood or Marysville, you can expect to appear in court immediately.
