The penalties for a DUI conviction can be extremely severe in our state, even if it is only your first time being convicted of such an offense. At the Dichter Office, PLLC we employ skilled and trusted Lynnwood DUI lawyers that are available to provide you with legal defense and support in the event that you have been charged with such a crime. We understand that you may be frightened and confused, especially in light of the possible penalties you might be facing. Our intention is to defend you as aggressively as possible against your charges, in order to resolve your case in a manner that is favorable to you.
The mandatory minimum penalties for a base level DUI conviction in Washington can be broken down as follows:
These penalties can be increased substantially if your breath or blood test indicates that your alcohol content was above 0.15 or if you refuse to give a breath or blood test. If you are pulled over for a DUI you should speak to a lawyer immediately before choosing whether or not to take a breath or blood test - only a lawyer can give you the best advice at that time. Feel free to call me, available 24 hours a day.
These penalties are far more severe it the DUI resulted in the injury or death of another.
Just by the simple fact that you are facing DUI charges, your chances of conviction may be inordinately high, as DUI laws and standards typically facilitate guilty verdicts.
