Talk to a burlington DUI Lawyer to avoid the harshest Penalties

Appearing in Burlington Municipal Court following an arrest is intimidating and frightening.  Such an appearance does not equate to guilt.  In fact the case has only begun and it is the job of the Burlington prosecutor to prove you are guilty.  Burlington DUI Lawyer David N. Jolly believes that the constitutional right of innocent before proven guilty is the perfect place to start a case.  During a case the law firm’s attorneys will challenge evidence, all evidence, including but definitely not limited to analyzing the maintenance records of breath and blood testing equipment, interrogate the police officer's work and look for errors in the report and breaches in police procedure and policy. The goal is simple and that is to demand the State of Washington or City of Burlington meet its burden of proving guilt. If it cannot prove guilt beyond a reasonable doubt on every element of the charge, the result is that charges could be reduced or your case dismissed.

Burlington WA DUI Lawyer David N. Jolly offers a free consultation including a thorough review of your case.  He or one the other attorneys will discuss your legal options, deadlines to be aware of, how to beat your charge, and of course their fees for representation.  To schedule a meeting, call (360) 336-8722 and one of our Skagit County DUI lawyers will talk to you immediately.  Phones are answered day or night.

We will examine the details of your arrest and the police reports for any inconsistencies or irregularities.

Being convicted of driving under the influence in Washington will result in financial penalties, the loss of your driving privilege, the installation of an ignition interlock device and jail - yes, mandatory jail.  

If this is not your first DUI in Washington the penalties increase rapidly and involve many weeks in jail, not simply a day or two. Additionally, the license suspension is no less than 2 years and an ignition interlock device must be in your vehicle for no less than 5 years (10 years if this is your third DUI in years).  Further, if you want to freely travel to Canada after a DUI arrest you can forget it.

The penalties for Washington DUI change frequently, making it even more important to hire an experienced and qualified Burlington criminal defense attorney like David N. Jolly.
