Ellensburg DUI Defense Attorney
Protecting Drivers throughout Kittitas County & Central Washington
Being pulled over can be a stressful experience, but once an officer decides you might be guilty of impaired driving, the situation can quickly spiral out of control. At Ellensburg Law, we understand how frustrating it can be to deal with these kinds of charges. Our Ellensburg DUI attorney has spent more than 25 years exclusively in criminal matters, giving her the experience and insights to help you obtain the best possible outcome for your situation. You don’t have to suffer the full weight of consequences of an arrest just because you were charged with a crime.
Washington DUI Laws
Throughout the United States, it is illegal for drivers age 21 and up to operate a vehicle with a blood alcohol content (BAC) percentage of .08 or higher. What a lot of citizens don’t understand is you can also be charged with a DUI even if your blood alcohol content (BAC) is less than .08. However, each state treats this crime differently. In Washington, being charged with drunk driving can result in a license suspension of 90 days up to years, depending on your prior driving history. It is important that you have a representative on your side who can fight for you and protect your rights.
At Ellensburg Law, we can help you by:
- Appealing your license suspension right away
- Applying for an Ignition Interlock Driver License (IIL) to allow you to continue driving
- Confirming that all evidence against you was obtained lawfully
- Checking for errors in equipment and arrest procedures
- Enrolling in a treatment program to avoid jail
If you are arrested for DUI, your license will mandatorily be suspended unless you appeal within 7 days. Our Ellensburg DUI defense attorney can help you file all paperwork and applications properly in order to avoid mistakes that could harm your future.
Defending against the Charges
Law enforcement can be overzealous in asserting that someone is guilty of drunk driving, using unlawful traffic stops as a way to get a person to admit to committing a crime. In some cases, they will use faulty field sobriety tests or BAC testing equipment to try and justify their stop. You have rights, and a strong criminal defense lawyer can help you fight for them.
The sooner you call our firm, the more time we will have to request evidence from law enforcement to better understand the charges you face. Many times, this review helps us to uncover crucial details that could help you obtain a better outcome. Don’t try to manage your case on your own.
