How can a Seattle DUI (Driving Under the Influence) attorney help?

There are many ways to challenge and disprove the evidence against an accused, and an experienced Seattle attorney knows the procedures involved. The attorney can:

File pretrial motions to suppress evidence: A successful motion almost always results in the criminal case being dismissed
Review the maintenance and calibration records of the breath/blood machine: These machines are not infallible. They are made of up of metal, plastic, and silicon, and all these materials deteriorate over time. To believe that they work every time, at 100% efficiency, is like believing your car will never break down. And, like a car, the amount and type of maintenance is very important to how well it works. Hire an analyst to determine if the driver’s blood alcohol concentration (BAC) was accurate. Effectively cross-examine the officer to expose mistakes and inaccuracies in the gathering of evidence.

What Does A Seattle DUI Attorney Do?

The attorney can represent the accused in court (the criminal case) and in the case brought by the Department of Licensing (the civil case). In court, the attorney can raise legal issues and negotiate with the prosecutor in order to get the case dropped or significantly reduced. With DOL, the attorney can raise legal issues in order to prevent a lengthy license suspension.

"Horwath Name Carries A Lot Of Weight"
When I got a DUI, I had no idea what to do. Having never been arrested, I was overwhelmed with fear, regret and questions. [...] Not only did Angela and her dedicated staff fight for me in the courtroom, they also walked me through the countless bureaucratic obstacles along the way. Whether dealing with judges, counselors or administrators, it quickly became clear that the Horwath name carries a lot of weight. "
