There are many technical defenses that are available in DUI cases. However, many criminal lawyers may not be aware of those defenses. That’s why you need an experienced DUI defense attorney to defend you if you have been charged with drunk driving.
I’m Schöen Parnell, a DUI lawyer with offices in Lynnwood and Kirkland. I have extensive experience defending people charged with DUI, BUI and other alcohol-related charges in Washington state.
There are few criminal cases as difficult to defend as drunk driving. Some attorneys say that DUI is almost on a par with a serious felony charge in the complexity of legal issues you will face. Your DUI case may involve:
You will never know if you have a viable defense in your DUI case unless you consult an experienced DUI/DWI defense lawyer. Any attorney can walk into a prosecutor’s office and try to work out a plea bargain. However, only an experienced lawyer will know if a specific plea bargain is a good result based on the facts of your case.
As your lawyer, I will review all reports and evidence. I will investigate the scene and interview the police officers and witnesses. Since an important part of your defense consists of weakening the prosecutor’s case, I file and argue motions to suppress evidence. This helps ensure that the prosecutor’s first offer is not their last offer. If the prosecutor does not offer an acceptable plea bargain, I am always prepared to defend you at trial.
