Did a great job at taking care of a review hearing for noncompliance. He not only took care of it quickly he had the hearing struck from the calendar. He also awnsered many questions and concerns I had very quickly usually in less then an hour.

Short version: Nathan Webb is an excellent attorney. If this is your first brush with the law in Washington, as it was mine, the courts and the Department of Licensing (DOL) will surprise you, and not in a good way. Mr. Webb may surprise you but only in a good way.
Long version: I got arrested for DUI in the spring of 2012. I was never booked, fingerprinted or jailed. This happened just before several high-profile drunk driving tragedies so the prosecutor was out for blood. I've always thought of driving as serious business whether I'm in a car or merely near one and I let that mindset lapse one night.
I hired Mr. Webb to hopefully remain eligible to enter Canada for work, or at least not go to jail even if it would have been one weekend in Issaquah. I didn't end up behind bars but I can't go to Canada more than once between now and 2022-ish unless their new government has a change of heart or I become a celebrity.
He testified for me at a DOL administrative hearing where the officer didn't show. Their appearance is not required because the police report is a sworn statement. My license was revoked for a year as there were no obvious mistakes in the report. They suspended it in error immediately after the hearing; since I had been brutally honest with Mr. Webb about what happened, I was upset when he didn't believe at first that I had a clean record prior to this (i.e. the suspension had to be for some other reason) but I chalked that up to cynicism gained by experience. At his behest they reinstated it that morning and I used the 60 day grace period to get an alcohol interlock installed.
He recommended the best alcohol interlock company (as long as "best" implies the least energetic piranha in the school) and an excellent alcohol dependency evaluation clinic. The DUI awareness class is not mandatory but it is part of sentencing and should be completed before then to show that you're serious.
Haven't seen an alcohol interlock before? Strangers won't notice it as long as you make small changes in your driving, parking and fueling habits. Locals aren't often busybodies but not everyone is a local these days.
You will need an ID card if you want to fly or cash a check. Entry to any country other than Canada is no problem. The DOL will not process Ignition Interlock License applications until after your suspension starts. Processing takes two weeks and I wouldn't drive (Google "automated license plate readers"). If you look at the jail rosters for SCORE, Issaquah, King, Pierce, etc. you'll see that every fourth or fifth person is locked up for DUI, DWLS 2, or interlock violations. Not something to experiment with.
Mr. Webb led me through my legal nightmare, showed up early for each appearance and managed to get my case to the top of the docket almost every time, so I was in court for less than an hour every 4-6 weeks over 18 months except for trial day. He didn't pressure me to accept a plea at any point but he stressed that juries are unpredictable. The prosecution rejected any juror who sounded like they understood "innocent until proven guilty" so 10 of the 12 jurors on the day of my mistrial were women who looked as if they were ready to volunteer as executioners. Lucky for me the officer made mistakes on the stand. Later, when he didn't appear again for the fifth time and the case was about to be continued, the prosecutor finally offered a plea and I gave in. I was not prepared to slog through the muck into a third year, whether or not a rational jury would have convicted me on stale rehearsed officer testimony alone. IIRC the court fine was about $1200. Pleas are offered and rescinded within minutes.
I was happy that Mr. Webb was there for me. His skills and knowledge are worth it. Since you're probably not here researching a term paper, hopefully you have an understanding boss and aren't driving for work. You probably won't be doing the latter again soon anyway.

No one wants to hire a DUI attorney, yet DUIs are a fact of life for many and not one that many are proud to share the experience of having gone through. Nate operates from an exceptional playbook of tactics to cover the bases but also personalizes and modernizes his approach based on current case law, facts, and particulars related to your incident. He defends thoughtfully, carefully, and mindfully and beyond just being a defense attorney, he has gained respect and standing with prosecutors and judges who take his presence on a case seriously.
He is consultative in his approach, spends a great deal of time educating on core concepts and legal precedents, and many years later, Nate has been willing to tie off some final loose ends of a case that is many many years old.
I highly recommend Nate and strongly encourage you to consider him should your personal situation require such focus.
