I was accused of breaking a traffic law. I hold a CDL and this was a big deal to me and the company that I work for. I contacted Mr. Bugbee and presented some evidence that I had not broken any traffic laws. He took my case, then presented all prepared evidence to the prosecuting attorney and won my case.
Mr. Bugbee was very easy to talk to and was a pleasure to work with.

Beat the Dept of Licensing automatic year suspension on Lack of Probably Cause.
Took a plea to Reckless Driving on the DUI.
Think we could have used the Lack of Probably Cause on this one too.
Chris is good at what he does. I recommend him and would hire him again.

Chris' experience in federal court and well as Spokane County court was important to us. HIs contacts and influence within the local legal community helped make the best of a complicated, multi-jurisdiction situation. The counsel we received from him was carefully considered, based on years of experience, and very helpful. As well, he was very generous in regard to the fees we paid for his services.

If you have been arrested for DUI in or near Spokane, I highly recommend that you check out Chris Bugbee, his team and his website. There's a ton of free information available to get your started. If you are serious about your future you should not be hiring a lawyer based on lowest fee. Do your research and find a lawyer with experience and a proven track record.
