Emerald City Law Group was contacted when an individual was charged with DUI and drug possession. Allegedly, they were driving erratically and after submitting to field sobriety testing, they were arrested for driving under the influence. A subsequent search revealed a bottle of alcohol as well as marijuana. The DUI attorneys with Emerald City Law Group negotiated fervently on this client’s behalf and successfully convinced the prosecution to amend the charges to negligent driving in the first degree and exclude any drug charges. This is a simple misdemeanor that does not include mandatory jail time and the client could resume their lives with minimal impact.
The outcome of an individual case depends on a variety of factors unique to that case. Case results do not guarantee or predict a similar result in any similar or future case.
