Make no mistake about it, a DUI arrest and conviction should not be taken lightly.

How We Can Help Your Case
In a sense, the personal judgment by your peers may begin as soon as people learn that you have been charged with DUI. Although the justice system heavily depends on the presumption of innocence, the intense emotional reaction that people have to the issue of driving under the influence can serve to completely erase that principle from a person's mind. Some examples of how an experienced DUI lawyer can help include:
- Determining whether your legal rights were respected in the arrest and any interrogation or sobriety tests
- Identifying lesser charges to which it might be reasonable to plead
- Arguing the facts of the case that are in the defendant's favor or which undermine claims made by the arresting officer
You should not entrust your legal standing to just anyone. Retain the services of an attorney upon whom you can rely. Contact the Seattle DUI lawyers of the Cowan Kirk Kattenhorn Law Firm at 866-822-1230.
