"The oldest and strongest emotion of mankind is fear, and the oldest and strongest kind of fear is fear of the unknown."
H. P. Lovecraft
When you or someone you care about is charged with "Driving Under the Influence" (DUI) in Washington, the fear can be overwhelming. For the last eleven years I have focused my practice exclusively on the defense of those charged with "DUI" in Washington. During the course of my practice I have assisted over 1,400 clients through the DUI process. Even on a first offense, there exists steep potential penalties to your driver's license, personal finances, and personal liberty. My goal is to eliminate the "unknown" as best I can and then formulate a plan that we can carry out together.
I have argued motions and trials in courts throughout Southwest Washington, including prevailing on the largest breath test suppression motion in Clark County history. DUI defense is what I do. It is the focus of my practice. Let's take fear out of the equation and begin working toward the successful outcome you are looking for.
