When It Comes to DUI Law, I Wrote the Book
In 1969, Doug Cowan began what would eventually grow into the respected Cowan Kirk Law Firm to help those in need get the legal defense they deserve. Since entering into the field of DUI defense, few other DUI defense lawyers have attained a comparable level of experience or accomplishment as Doug Cowan, who shared his knowledge with state DUI attorneys through the legal textbook Defending DUIs in Washington.
In addition to his contributions to the academic world and the reducation of future DUI defenders, Cowan was instrumental in the founding of the National College for DUI Defense. Working with 11 other DUI defense attorneys from other state jurisdictions, the college was put together in 1995 to help assist Harvard law students and other attorneys recognize the importance and nuances of DUI defense. Lecturing in over 19 states, Cowan has made an impact on the national stage for the improvement of DUI defense.
Every American has the right to a fair trial and a fair chance to fight the charges that are levied against them. Even though it is popular to vilify those charged with DUI violations, the Bellingham DUI attorneys of Cowan Kirk recognize that you deserve to be treated with respect.
