    Assuming you have no prior alcohol/drug related charges, you can expect to pay between $1,500 and $5,000 for your defense. These fees will be based upon both the experience of the attorney you hire and the complexity of your case. As someone who regularly practices throughout Eastern Washington including Pullman/Colfax and Spokane, I must respectfully disagree with the folks who refer to those charging $1,500 for DUI representation "fly-by-nights and hacks." There are many excellent...

    Of course, coming from a defense attorney, I would always request a contested hearing. Whether it is the right decision for you is another matter. It would depend on the facts of your case and how much your time is worth. The speeding statute talks about traveling at a reduced speed when necessary to avoid a collision and at a speed that is consistant with using due care. I would encourage you to consult with an attorney in the Kennewick/Tri-Cities area, who practices in the traffic...

    There is no mandatory jail sanction on DWLS 3rd. Obviously, you are aware that the possibility of a judge ording jail goes up with the number of prior charges and will go up if you are on probation for any of the prior cases. Sounds like the first thing you need to do is get organized. By that, I mean you should immediately two things. First, call DOL. You should verify exactly what you'll need to do to get your license back AND verify they have the best mailing address for you. They...

    Your questions absolutely need to be discussed with your attorney. It sounds like you have only been accused of DUI and H+R so far. As such, you still have the right to present a defense at trial. The defense of having consumed alcohol after driving typically can only be used during negotiations and/or trial. You should immediately compile a list of any witnesses and phone numbers of your treating physicians and anyone who may have seen you consume alcohol and Ativan after driving. This...

    If your are looking for information on how many cases were filed in a certain area, you can check www.courts.wa.gov. You may also just call the local district/municipal court for the specific location you're investigating. On the other hand, if you are trying to find in-depth information about an individual case, you'll likely want to talk to the prosecuting and/or defense attorneys who handled the case. Hope that helps.

    There are two parts to your question. Assuming you mean your girlfriend was charged with Domestic Violence Assault 4th Degree, she is facing a potential jail sentence of up to 365 days on that specific charge. Regarding the probation for DUI, she MAY be facing a probation violation and potential jail if the conditions of her probation prohibited her from being charged with a new crime. She should refer to her original probation order from the date of sentencing on the DUI to verify. I...

    It's difficult to answer your question without more detail. If you think there may have been changes to the Ignition Interlock License (IIL) that altered your driving privilege, I suggest you immediately contact the Washington State Department of Licensing at (360) 902-3900. One change that became effective 1/1/11 is that folks who submitted to a breath/blood test at the time of arrest and who have entered a Deferred Prosecution in court for an alcohol related DUI no longer need the IIL....

    I always warn folks on any licensing question to begin by calling Washington Department of Licensing (DOL). I can tell you the law, but only DOL can authorize you to drive. First, if you are suspended in ID, WA DOL will most likely honor ID's suspension. You may be able to apply for some kind of restricted WA license, but that would depend on your residency and the reason you were suspended in ID. WA shouldn't impose any restrictions on your driving privilege beyond what ID has done....

    In a DUI setting the Department of Licensing can suspend or revoke your driving privilege in several different circumstances. These include being convicted of an adult DUI or Reckless Driving. You can also be suspended or revoked by DOL for failing to request an administrative hearing within 20 days of the arrest/notice of suspension or by losing the administrative hearing. If you have been suspended or revoked you are required to turn your old license in and obtain an "Identification Card....

  10. Revoked license in CA from 2 DUIs 10 years ago, now I live in WA. Will this prevent me from getting my license in this state?

    The quick answer is no. WA Department of LIcensing will not issue a driver's license to you until you have resolved the revocation in CA. You should immediately contact CA's DMV and ask them how to resolve the revocation down there. Only after that revocation is resolved with WA issue a license to you
