Find The Most Realistic Outcome For Your Seattle DUI Case

DUI lawyers in SeattleFirst of all, the most important question you should be asking your Seattle DUI lawyer is “what is the most realistic outcome for my DUI case?” Before you do, of course, you need to honestly and circumstantially describe what happened when you were pulled over and arrested. Therefore, after we hear all the details and receive answers to all our question regarding your situation, we should be able to explain on what to expect for your DUI case.

Hence, it is important to be extra careful and not to get involved with DUI lead generation services. In fact, it is easy to recognize a lead generation service apart from an actual DUI attorney. Consequently, a lead generation agent will be eager to draw you in and will promise you anything just to get you to sign a legal contract. On contrary, our Seattle DUI attorney will never promise you to get your case dismissed unless he is absolutely sure he can make it happen. Our lawyer will ask you about all the details of your arrest and only then will make a prediction.

Furthermore, nearly every reputable criminal defense law firm offers a free initial consultation, these days. Because the initial consultation is just the right time to ask all your questions. This is why we recommend that you come prepared and take a full advantage of our free consultation. In order to do it right, you should prepare a list of questions and go over your list with our Seattle DUI attorneys one by one. Hence, having a so to speak “cheat sheet” will help you address all your worries and not leave anything out due to stress or simple forgetfulness.

Experience The Benefit Of Face To Face Consultation With Your Lawyer

It is absolutely important to have a face to face appointment rather than an over the phone consultation. Unfortunately, an over the phone consultations are often held not by a Seattle DUI lawyer but by a case manager or administrator. As a result, at times, case managers may be very experienced and helpful. They don’t have a right to advice a client or make any kind of predictions on the case. This is why our attorney himself is always ready to take a call and schedule a face to face consultation.

Also, it is extremely important to research your potential Seattle DUI lawyer to make sure he is currently practicing DUI criminal defense. Consequently, lawyers decide not to go to courts with each and every client, but rather send a less experienced associate to handle your case. As a result, such an attorney will not be able to make a realistic estimate for your case. On contrary, our lawyer, who personally represents his clients in court, is acquainted with local judges and prosecutors. Hence, he will know better ways on how to approach them, which can lead to a positive outcome for your case.

What To Expect After Being Arrested For DUI

In addition, we strongly recommend contacting our Seattle DUI Law Offices to schedule a FREE Consultation.

The Importance Of an Arraignment

The DUI arraignment is your first appearance in court after being arrested for driving under the influence of alcohol or illegal substance. Also, while at the DUI arraignment, you will be informed about the charges and will be granted with a possibility to enter a plea. In addition, you can plead “not guilty”, “no contest” or “guilty”. Therefore, if you disagree with the DUI charges and wish to challenge them, you will have to plead “not guilty”, and the judge will set your trial for the future date. Hence, dealing with the arraignment can be confusing, particularly if this is your first DUI. Our Seattle DUI lawyer from Kleyner Law Offices will be there for you during the arraignment and will make sure that you understand everything that is happening during the hearing.

Request an Administrative DOL Hearing

If you are inclined to challenge your driver’s license suspension after the DUI arrest, you or your DUI lawyer will need to get in touch with the DOL’s office within 10 days after the arrest in order to request the DOL administrative hearing. Consequently, an experienced DUI lawyer in Seattle is well informed about time frames and will know when to request your hearing as well as will be there to help you during the hearing.

In case you fail to request the hearing within 10 days after your DUI arrest, you will automatically lose your right to challenge the suspension and your driver’s license will be suspended after 30 days. Even if you had your driver’s license issued in another state, it will be suspended if you fail to request a DUI hearing within 10 days.

Avoid Driver’s License Suspension

If you were arrested for DUI, the arresting officer will most likely confiscate your driver’s license and will give you a special “notice of suspension” document along with a “temporary license”. Due to the arrest, this temporary license will be active for 30 days after the arrest. Afterwards, your license will be suspended for at least six months. If you refuse to submit yourself to the breathalyzer or the blood tests, your license will be suspended for at least a year. And if you were previously convicted for DUI in Seattle, your license can be suspended for up to 10 years.

Furthermore, if you wish to challenge the suspension of your driver’s license after DUI, you have the right to request an administrative DOL hearing. But only within 10 days after your arrest. Therefore, our Seattle DUI attorney will represent you at the hearing and will aid you in keeping your driver’s license from lengthy suspension.

Get Familiar With DUI Legal Punishment

If you were arrested for DUI in Seattle, you risk facing penalties such as jail time, driver’s license suspension, expensive fines and community service. Hence, if you committed a DUI misdemeanor for the first time, the legal punishment will still be strict. You can lose your license for up to 6 months, possibly can spend up to 6 months in jail (although in most cases, jail time for the first-time misdemeanor offenders is unlikely), will have to attend special alcohol awareness classes for up to 9 months and will have to pay up to $2000 in fines. Furthermore, if you had prior DUI convictions within the last 10 years, the legal punishment will be even more severe.


Avoid a Criminal DUI Conviction in Seattle

Most importantly, in most DUI cases, the prosecutor will make you believe that they have you cornered and you have no options left. In truth, there is a large variety of DUI defense strategies that our attorney specialist will be able to use in order to help you avoid conviction.

Here are some examples of successful defense strategies:

  • The law enforcement officer did not have a probable cause to pull over your vehicle
  • Wrongful testing procedures related to breathalyzer and BAC tests
  • Violation of the Miranda rights
  • Unlawful arrest
  • Not enough evidence

Finally, if you were arrested for driving under the influence in Seattle, these defense strategies may well help you avoid harsh penalties. An experienced Seattle DUI attorney will be happy to help you find the right defense strategy and will use it in court so as to fight the DUI charges. Time is of the essence and you must get in touch with the lawyer as soon as possible.
