Extremely qualified Attorney!
Andrew Wheeler gave very sound guidance and listened to every detail with patience deserving a saint. This attorney knows all the nuances of DUI and the process. I have no hesitation in recommending Andrew Wheeler for your DUI representation.

Excellent service!
I can’t say enough good things about the way Attorney Wheeler handled my case. He gave me a realistic expectation of what was to come and fought hard to dismiss my DUI case. I didn’t feel as if this was just another dollar sign to him, I felt as if he genuinely cared about the facts of the case and making things right. I would recommend him to anyone looking for true representation and someone that will fight for their client.

First offense and not a WA resident
I am delighted to share my experience with DUI attorney Andrew Wheeler, who went above and beyond to help me with my case. From the beginning, he was very understanding of my situation and made me feel at ease throughout the entire process. Not only did he get my charge reduced to a negligent driving offense, but he also helped me to keep my license without any license suspension time or breathalyzer requirements for my car. He was very professional and thorough in his approach, leaving no stone unturned in his quest to get the best possible outcome for me. One thing that really impressed me was his willingness to listen to my concerns and answer any questions I had. He never made me feel like I was bothering him or that my questions were insignificant. Instead, he took the time to explain everything in detail, ensuring that I fully understood my options and the potential consequences of each. He provided me with guidance where I needed it, and made sure I knew what to expect next. I would highly recommend Wheeler-Boyd to anyone facing similar charges. They are incredibly knowledgeable, passionate, and dedicated to helping their clients get the best possible outcome. If you're looking for a lawyer who will fight for you and keep you informed every step of the way, then look no further than this exceptional attorney. Thank you so much for all your hard work!

History of DUIs
Having previous DUIs on my record from years prior, another one did not look good and I was not sure what to do. Thanks to Affordable Bail Bonds, they handed me Andrew Wheeler’s business card and strongly urged me to call him. They said he was good at what he did and reasonably priced, so I called him. Seeing that he specializes strictly in DUIs, I could tell immediately that he knew precisely what he was talking about and so I hired him on the spot—and am so glad I did. Andrew and Alex Uskoski, both working hard on my case, even requested a more lenient prosecutor, which ultimately resulted in an agreement that worked out for both parties and satisfied the court. The entire time, they had my best interest at heart. Doing my part and everything they instructed me to do, my outcome was far better than I expected. Thank you Andrew for investing in me! Got a DUI?

Amazing attorney
I hired him for a DUI hearing and interviewed many other lawyers in the process, but I chose him because he had the most expertise on the matter, was the easiest to get in contact with, and he really listened to everything I said and answered every possible question in a way I could understand. I am so glad I went with him too! Throughout the whole process him and his team was way ahead of everything I'd need to do, they got my charges and fees reduced SIGNIFICANTLY, and even to this day if I have a question or something else comes up they get back to me within minutes with advice or assistance. If you need a lawyer who cares and can make the process way easier on you he's your guy without a question.

Andrew Wheeler handled a DUI for me. He was meticulous in getting all of the details to strategically implement his plan. Andrew was able to reduce this DUI to Negligent Driving. Excellent outcome. Saved my Driver's license. I highly recommend Andrew Wheeler.

Miracle workers
I was in a tight spot with a .14 first offense DUI. Fortunately, the first lawyer who answered while I was at the station was Alex Uskoski (who works closely with Andrew Wheeler). Andrew and Alex took my case and were very professional and up front about the possibilities as well as the cost (which is very reasonable). Even with very little to work with they somehow were able to negotiate my case down to a reckless driving, no jail time and only minimal court fees!I was very much expecting a far worse outcome but Alex/Andrew and the rest of the team Wheeler Boyd, PLLC were able to work wonders for me in a very unnerving situation. I highly recommend you go to them if you find yourself in a DUI situation.

DUI charges? Andrew Wheeler is your man!
I could not have asked for better representation. From start to finish, I did not ever have a single doubt that i was in excellent hands. If I wanted the best result possible, Andrew was who I needed in my corner. I was a very special case, it was incredibly complicated, and I truly needed top notch representation for the result I was hoping to get. Mr. Wheeler did such an amazing job with everything. He guided me through the entire process without fail! From working with my mother to get me released from custody, to working with me while I was hospitalized for over twenty days and multiple one week stays in the hospital. Reguardless of your circumstances, if it is a dui related case, I wholeheartedly reccomend Andrew Wheeler.

Great Attorney
I was very happy with Andrew. His office is very organized, and provided me with step by step directions on how to navigate a confusing law system. I would not hesitate referring friends or family to him. He is very friendly, approachable and organized. If you need an attorney, he is an excellent choice.

Amazing choice for Lawyer
I had the best experience with Andrew as my lawyer. From the initial consultation, he already had my court documents and an initial plan for my case. He was straight forward about realistic expectations and guided me through the entire legal process. He kept me informed about my case and about our options every step of the way. Andrew also made himself readily available by phone if I had any questions or just needed to clarify things. If you are in need of a very knowledgeable and experienced lawyer, I would 100% suggest Andrew and his team.

Excellent representation
I was arrested for DUI and Andrew and his team really went the extra mile for me and put in the time and effort to help me out. Andrew explained my options and we fought the charges. Using his knowledge of the way Washington states laws work and the legal system as well as putting in the time, Andrew and his team were able to get the charges reduced. I am grateful and so happy that I made that call and would recommend his firm to anyone that needs a competent lawyer to represent them .

In your best interest
The title says it all! From the initial consultation all the way through the court hearing Andrew and his team of professionals are always there and ready to answer any questions you have. If you are unfortunate enough to need an attorney, go with the best and hire Andrew wheeler. I had a prior incident and with the new laws the judge thought that he was required to give me some mandatory sentencing but thanks to Andrews knowledge of the law he was quick to point out to the judge that he was mistaken and was able to change the outcome of my case in a very positive way! Many thanks!!

Great Defense Lawyer
I am very impressed with the consideration Andrew took with my case. I was looking at a much more severe penalty because I refused to blow after I was pulled over. He was able to get that reduced and my speeding ticket dropped. Worth every penny! The entire team is working for you if you hire them. The paperwork was always very clear and my phone calls always returned. I highly recommend Andrew!

Mr. Wheeler is awesome!
(23M) First time ever having to do anything court related, Mr. Wheeler walked me through everything and answered many of my questions that would have gone unanswered had he not been there. Mr. Wheeler was exceptional at communication when explaining documents and never left me feeling unsure. I would highly recommend Mr. Wheeler to anyone that needs a lawyer for a DUI case.

Amazing Attorney
Mr. Wheeler not only is a great, confident attorney, but he also has true emotional intelligence. He is genuinely empathetic and compassionate to the situation. He even took the time to give me a quick consultation during an arraignment just because I was a previous client. I could not recommend him enough!

Needed Help Right Away
Me. Wheeler represented me in a DUI case. He not only showed pose and professionalism through the entire trial but he also listened and helped me understand all the possible options available. He always made my questions seem constructive and was available without fail. Although I hope I never have to use his help again, I would recommenced 10/10 to my family and friends.
