​​Exceptional Traffic Defense Lawyers

Beating your DUI


There are a lot of levels of evidence in a DUI. Your traffic stop has requirements and the documentation of the stop must be done a certain way. Not only that, but roadside tests are only valid if they were correctly ordered and conducted. The breath test machine, and the paperwork associated with it and your test must comply with very specific regulations. There is a lot of room for error, and some errors can get your case reduced, or even kicked out. Our lawyers know what to look for. Call today for your free consultation, (253)683-4180.


Your License


If you have been arrested for a DUI, the arresting officer probably punched a hole in your license and provided you with notice of your DOL hearing rights. You need to quickly request and pay for a DOL hearing if you want to challenge your suspension. You can also apply for an ignition interlock license, but talk to a Durflinger Oliver attorney before you do anything. Remember, though, you only have 20 days to request the DOL Hearing.


DUI Penalties


If you have been charged with DUI in Washington State, you may face jail time, loss of your driver license and expensive fines and fees. A first DUI can land you in jail, Alcohol classes, and probation. Fortunately, many DUI charges end with something much better than a DUI conviction, so your case probably is not nearly as bad as you think. Click here for more info.
