Arraignment

Within 24 hours of a DUI arrest, you must appear before a judge. You can expect to be informed of your rights, the charges against you and your conditions of release. As your DUI Attorney, I can go to court with you to be your counsel and advocate.

Discovery

You have the right to review all of the evidence against you. As your DUI Attorney in Tri-Cities, WA my review of the evidence can make all the difference.

Plea Negotiation

Suppression Motions

The police don’t always get it right. That is one of the things you hire an DUI attorney to look for. If the police pulled you over without reasonable suspicion or arrested you without probable cause, I may be able to get your case dismissed. We all have to follow the law and that includes the police.

Driver Hearings

Every DUI comes with a court case and a Department of Licensing case. Unless you request a driver hearing with the Department of Licensing you will lose your driver’s license. Let me defend your license to keep you on the road.
