For the best chance of having charges dropped or an acquittal, you need the help of a defense attorney who knows what techniques are effective at fighting DUI charges. Even if your goal is simply to maximize plea negotiations, the presentation of a dynamic defense can motivate the prosecution to make the best possible offer.

The Best DUI Defense Is a Good Offense

When you hire DUI lawyer David Partovi, he will thoroughly examine your arrest and alcohol testing to ensure your rights are respected. Areas he may probe include:

  • Was the breathalyzer properly calibrated?
  • Was the officer who conducted your testing properly trained on how to operate the breathalyzer?
  • Was there probable cause for the officer to pull you over in the first place?
  • Were symptoms of a medical condition mistaken for signs of intoxication?
  • Is there any history of defects or false positives from the specific model of breathalyzer you were tested on?

Act Right Away to Avoid Administrative License Suspension

Once you have been arrested for DUI, you have a short amount of time to act before an administrative suspension is placed on your driving privileges. You must mail in a request for an administrative hearing on the matter. In Washington, you have 20 days to mail in the request for a hearing. In Idaho, you have only seven days.

Criminal defense lawyer David Partovi can help you submit the necessary forms. Contacting our Spokane law office as soon as possible after your arrest for DUI can help you keep your driver's license.

DUI Penalties

Hiring a DUI lawyer is critical because drunk driving charges carry serious penalties in both Washington and Idaho. The classification of your DUI as a misdemeanor or a felony, as well as the severity of the consequences you face, is determined by numerous factors, including your blood alcohol concentration (BAC), your behavior towards police, and whether you've been found guilty of DUI before.

At a minimum, in a first offense DUI case, the penalties you face include:

Washington Idaho
Jail Time Between one day and 364 days in jail Up to six months in jail (or one year if your BAC is .20% or greater)
Fines Up to $5,000 Up to $1,000 (or up to $2,000 if your BAC is .20% or greater)
License Suspension 90 days (or one to two years if your BAC is .15% or greater) 90 days to 210 days (or up to one year if your BAC is .20% or greater)
Ignition Interlock Device In place for one year after suspension In place for one year after suspension

Of course, if this is your second or third DUI, the penalties you face are more severe. To protect your freedom, the best course of action is to consult with a DUI lawyer like David Partovi.
