If you are arrested for DUI, you will need to address both the criminal charges against you as well as the administrative proceedings regarding actions to be taken against your driver’s license. There are specific steps and deadlines involved in attempting to keep your license. If these are not done correctly, it can result in actions against your license which may otherwise have been avoided. Being unsure of what to do can be incredibly unsettling and overwhelming but you don't have to face it alone.
At the Dichter Law Office, PLLC, an experienced Lynnwood DUI lawyer can make sure your case will be addressed with competence and skill. You only have three weeks from the date of your arrest to attempt to save your driver's license so don't wait to take action.
We understand that losing your driver’s license would have a significant impact on your life. It may affect your ability to earn your income, execute your responsibilities, and enjoy your usual activities and freedom. Not being able to drive is a very frightening prospect but you can be sure that we will fight energetically to protect your driving privileges. You have the right to a hearing with the Department of Licensing (DOL) and we can help you to approach this strategically. As of a legal update on January 1st, 2019, you only have one week from the date of your arrest to mail this in and request your hearing - so you need to make sure you retain our office before this time. There are specific ways to make this request benefit you.
Our team can argue persuasively on your behalf regarding facts which support your right to keep your license. These may include whether your police stop had a lawful basis and if there was due cause to arrest you. Whether you were advised of certain rights at the time of arrest and the validity of your breath and blood tests can also be presented for consideration. It is still possible you may keep your license and we will do everything we can to help you.
