    More information as to the typre of hearing you have coming up is needed. If this is a civil motion for an antiharassment order against you then you need not be present. However you lack of presence will likely mean an automatic finding against you. If this is a hearing on a criminal matter you probably need to be present.

  2. Do I need a traffic infraction lawyer?

    The reality of traffic infraction defense is that explaining the story to the judge results in a finding against you 99% of the time. Think of it this way. You will be hiring an attorney not only to fight the new charge but the old one as well. A finding against you in the new case will llikely result in a finding against you on the older deferred case.

    He needs to contact a criminal defense attorney immediately. Most will offer him a free consultation whether or not he ultimately hires them. He can use the advice he receives to determine what his next step is.

    It depends on whether or not a warrant still exists for your arrests. Warrants in Washington have an expiration date but often are renewed. It is likely that a warrant does still exist. If that is the case, if you crossed into Washington, you would be arrest upon entry. Determining whether or not a warrant exists is a simple matter. Contact an attorney in Washington or even the court the DUI was filed in to detrmine the warrant status. If there is a warrant, it likely can be quashed prior...

    Before turning himself in or contacting an attorney, have your friend call the court that issued the warrant. Depending on the charge, the court, and the amount of bail imposed, your friend might need only go to the clerk of the court and sign for a new court date. If it turns out that this particular court won't allow that or that the bail is too high too simply post, he should definitely contact a DUI attorney in Seattle. A motion to quash the warrant can be made to the court and most...

  6. DUI deferred

    I wouldn't feel comfortable just telling you to anser "yes" without knowing more. It's easy to say that since the application asks, "Have you ever had a prosecution deferred?" that entry in a deferred prosecution would require an answer in the affirmative. I don't know if that is that simple. There are different ways that a prosecution could be deferred. A "deferred prosecution" is a stautorily created construct, one of the purposes of which is to allow someone who has a problem with alcohol to...

    There certainly seem to be a few issues here. The most intriguing is the timing of the implied consent advisory. Presumably, the test you were being requested to take by the roadside was a portable breath test (pbt). If so, the implied consent statute does not apply to that test. You were not under arrest and the officer was not asking you to provide a breath sample in order to satisfy the implied consent statute. What an officer does and what he writes in his report can be two different things,...

  8. Why will the Washington DOL not issue you me an Ignition Interlock license for my administrative suspension before my conviction

    Answered about 5 years ago.

    Something is not computing here. Assuming that you are otherwise eligible for the IIL, the DOL should not delay the granting of the license while it waits for a conviction that may or may not come. Either all of the facts are not before us or someone at the DOL is way off base. If you haven't done so already I suggest conacting a DUI attorney. A simple call to the right people within the DOL might be able to resolve this.

  9. Is SR22 unavoidable with DUI charge?

    At this juncture, in order to avoid SR-22 you have two options. One is to win an appeal of the DOL order of suspension and have the DUI charge dismissed or reduced to an offense that would not require a license suspension. The other option is to enter into and complete a five (5) year deferred prosecution of the criminal charge. I am certainly not suggesting you enter into a deferred prosecution pursuant to Chapter 10.05 of the RCW just to avoid SR-22. Entering into deferred prosecution...

    It is unfortunate but some prosecutorial jurisdictions in Washington, King County in particular, often take several months to file a DUI charge. Generally, the state has a two year statute of limitations in which to file a DUI. A charge filed anywhere within this time frame is generally acceptable. There are however, exceptions, that are based on a case by case nature. If you were made to post bail and that bail was never returned, it's possible that your speedy trial clock has run. If you...
