I just got a DUI.
If you did, then you are probably worried about how this ticket is going to affect your license, job, and your future. Your reputation is on the line and now you need to talk to an attorney that is willing to explain the necessary steps you need to take with this type of citation.
Keep in mind that although the officer gave you a citation that looks like "just" a ticket you need to take it seriously. It is actually a Gross Misdemeanor in Washington State. There is a maximum of 364 days in jail and a $5,000 dollar fine on gross misdemeanors. But, don't worry, I know you just had a heart attack. I have never had a client where those maximums where imposed.
What do I do now?
First, call my office and schedule a consultation at 509.317.8184. Bring in any paperwork you have on the incident and be ready to have an open conversation about what happened. I promise that you will leave feeling better about your situation. It is my job to take some of the burden of your case off your shoulders.
If you don't feel that way after discussing your case, I might not be the right fit for you. I always tell my clients, "If I have to convince you, I'm not for you." And, that is ok, I will be happy to refer you to someone that might be a better fit for you.
For now, hold your head up high, good people make mistakes too, and you're going to get through this!
