This Attorney with his law group totally did nothing that I myself in law library could have not have formulated. Very Needless individual. Mr Hall's last remarks to me were
"Your Momma gots money..." then his facial expression went blank as he took off to his high price Mercedes /AMG that i am sure my family's money went to pay for.
I drive a Honda hybrid to save our country gas and money. Chose wisely. I don't understand why James Newton would stand for this person.
I was in a one car accident in early December – I took a wrong turned, overcorrected and ended up going up an embankment and flipping my truck. The WA State Patrol responded, I was transported to the hospital and subsequently arrested for DUI because, while on a backboard being wheeled into the ER the trooper as me if I would take a blow test and I said "not right now"... I was on a stretcher and could barely breathe! Apparently, if you refuse to blow no matter the circumstances you are arrested AND you automatically lose your license for a year! For the sake of argument, I blew a the blood tests showed .8.
Enter Keith Hall at Jim Newton Law who I hired to represent me a few weeks. We entered a plea of not guilty and he worked with the prosecutor to have the charges “reduced” to reckless driving. Because I did refuse to blow, the DOL is still mandating that I have an ignition interlock device in my car for a year – AND I have to pay for high risk insurance which I couldn’t get through the carrier I had been with for two decades. This is DOL and it's mandatory because I didn't blow while on the stretcher! Bottom line, if you are asked to blow - just do it! Not blowing is the only way your license can be suspended automatically. Had I said yes, the results could have saved me a lot of money!
I was initially wanting to represent myself but was strongly encouraged to hire an attorney and am thankful I did. Keith did a great job representing me. I recommend Jim Newton Law if you're charged with a DIU
