Our DUI attorneys aided a client after they were stopped for speeding and ultimately charged with driving under the influence. The individual was pulled over for speeding on I-5 and after the officer noted a strong odor of alcohol and noticed an open can of beer in the cup holder, they performed field sobriety tests and were ultimately arrested. The client now faced the possibility of a mandatory jail sentence and a license suspension, so they contacted Emerald City Law Group. After an in-depth investigation, our DUI lawyers negotiated with the prosecution and facilitated an agreement that saw the DUI drastically reduced to first-degree negligent driving. This spared the client from any time in jail and allowed them to keep their driving privileges. By choosing effective legal counsel, this client avoided the costly penalties of a DUI conviction.
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.
