DUI Comes With Many Serious Consequences
If you’ve been arrested on suspicion DUI in southwestern Washington, you face both a criminal charge that could result in mandatory jail time as well as an administrative action that could result in license suspension or an interlock device being placed on your car. Typically, people first learn of the pending administrative action when they receive a letter from the Washington State Department of Licensing.
At Reitsch, Weston & Blondin, P.L.L.C., we have represented hundreds of people charged with DUI (also known as drunk drinking or DWI) in Longview and across southwest Washington. We are familiar not only with the prosecutors and judges, but also the arresting officers involved. We will represent you both in your criminal charge as well as the administrative hearing with the Washington State Department of Licensing.
Suppressing Or Challenging Evidence On Your Behalf
Our first priority is to achieve a dismissal or acquittal of the DUI charges by suppressing evidence due to an illegal stop, an illegal search or lack of probable cause to arrest you.
Secondly, we can argue lack of intoxication based on what the officer claimed to have observed.
Finally, we can challenge the Breathalyzer results in your case. We can call on expert witnesses to contradict the state’s witness and point out variations that will invalidate the sample you had provided. We can also challenge the calibration of the machine or the temperature of the solution.
