    Average cost of lawyer: I'm not sure what the average is, but they do range from $2,000 to over $10,000. Money of course is an issue, but you really want to seek out an attorney that is right for you. Many good lawyers offer reasonable rates and even payment options. Average punishment: There are mandatory punishments if convicted, but each case is different. Depending on the case you may be able to have your DUI reduced where the punishment is a lot less severe. Without going over the case...

    I know this sounds like a generic answer, but you should really consult an attorney in person right away. The conversation with the attorney would be confidential unlike this forum. You will be able to tell the attorney all the details without risking making admissions, and that attorney could best consult or advise you if retained. Sorry to hear about your misfortune and I wish you the best of luck.

    As the attorney above metioned, you should contact a lawyer ASAP. However, since you asked about Corpus Delicti a good point to start your research is with: State v. Hamrick, 19 Wn. App. 417 (Wash. Ct. App. 1978) "A state patrol officer investigated a two-car accident. As a result of that investigation, defendant was charged with driving while under the influence of intoxicating liquor. The trial court dismissed the charge for failure to establish the corpus delicti. On appeal, the court...

    You should meet with an attorney ASAP. From the limited information it sounds like you will have defenses. You also will have to deal with the DOL. make sure you request the hearing within 20. Best of luck, Joseph Rome www.josephrome.com

    Could have the Trooper suspected a drug DUI? "where the officer has reasonable grounds to believe that the person is under the influence of a drug, a blood test shall be administered by a qualified person as provided in RCW 46.61.506(5)." You should set up a consultation with a DUI attorney and to go over the details.

    The DOL and the criminal charge act for the most part separately. You have 20 days from the date of arrest to request a DOL hearing. So, simple answer is yes, you probably should request a hearing. On the criminal Dui issue the prosecutor has up to two years to file. Often it is more like 4 to 8 weeks. Call a DUI attorney ASAP.

    That sounds really scary. Sorry to hear that your child had to go through that. You should begin interviewing personal injury attorneys ASAP. This makes me nervous, since my kids will always run right to the machines anytime we enter a sporting good store. I do tell them to keep off, but they don't always listen.

    In my humble opinion it would only be appropriate for you to contact "your lawyer" so that he or she could address these questions. He/she would be in the best position to know how to answer your questions.
