The State of Washington is renowned for being tough on drunk drivers. The penalties in this state are some of the strictest in the entire country. Washington State enacted the first marijuana DUI law that specifically made it illegal to drive with 5 or more nanograms in the body. The State legislature is now talking about lowering the blood alcohol concentration level from 0.080 to 0.050. As you would expect, law enforcement, prosecuting attorneys and Judges are taking DUIs more seriously than ever and acting in accordance with the wishes of State of Washington politicians. If you have been arrested for driving under the influence it is more important than ever to retain a qualified and experienced Washington DUI attorney.
Hire the Best DUI Attorney
Following your DUI arrest you may have many questions and many more concerns. Certain counties in Western Washington, such as Whatcom, Skagit and Island require the person charged with DUI to appear in court immediately following the arrest. Many more cities, such as Bellingham, Everett, Marysville, Lynnwood, Bothell, and Mount Vernon, to name only a few, demand the defendant appear in court only days after the arrest. If you find yourself in this situation you must consult with a DUI attorney as soon as possible to protect your rights and build a defense. The Washington State DUI lawyers at the Law Firm of David N. Jolly are available day and night to take your call and will respond to messages and emails on the same day. We can help!
The criminal defense attorneys at the Law Firm of David N. Jolly have more than 20 years of DUI and Traffic Ticket legal experience.

Finally, we also offer criminal defense to those charged with crimes other than DUI, including assault, suspended licenses, reckless driving, negligent driving, malicious mischief, Marijuana DUIs and theft.
We Listen. We care. We Fight. We Protect.
If you have been charged with a DUI in Western Washington, most particularly in Snohomish County, Whatcom County, Skagit County, King County or Island County, please call one of our Washington State DUI attorneys today. We have appeared in every District and Municipal court from Tacoma to Bellingham and understand exactly what it takes to successfully defend our clients when faced with a driving under the influence charge. We are responsive and dedicated to the best results for our clients and are ready to meet in either our Snohomish County law office in Everett or our Whatcom County law office in Bellingham. Contact our Washington State DUI attorneys today for a free consultation. Also, in 2015 look for a series of helpful videos that explain the entire DUI process including how to deal with court, the Department of Licensing and related driving issues and the entire alcohol evaluation process and why it is so important.
Low Retainers and Payment Plans
We understand that being arrested for driving under the influence was not planned. We equally understand that hiring an attorney to fight your DUI was not budgeted for. In some instances, namely Whatcom County, Skagit County and Island County you will find yourself in court immediately following your DUI arrest and in need of a lawyer right away. The same is true for many cities including Bellingham, Mount Vernon, Burlington, Anacortes, Everett, Lynnwood, and Marysville, to name only a few. Knowing this we offer different payment plans and fees for all cases. We can keep our fees low by not charging our clients for services they do not need. While a Jury Trial is always possible, the truth is that most defendants charged with driving under the influence never go to a trial, therefore we only charge for trial if it is needed. Similarly, most clients never need the services of an expensive expert in cases, as a result we never charge for experts unless they are necessary. Further, we have set our retainers relatively low so to make us more affordable than comparable attorneys. All the while our clients can expect top quality legal representation but for reasonable fees. If you want the best DUI attorney at a price most people can actually afford please contact our office today to speak to one of our experienced Washington State DUI attorneys.

As always, if you have been arrested for DUI call our Everett DUI attorneys at (425) 493-1115 or our Bellingham DUI attorneys at (360) 293-2275.

Following your arrest for DUI in Whatcom County you will likely be released directly to the Whatcom County Jail. This should be an indication of how seriously law enforcement and prosecutors take any DUI in Bellingham. To add insult to injury, upon release from jail you will receive a summons indicating a court date within a day or two of the arrest. Because you will be required to appear in court and face a Judge almost immediately following your arrest it is imperative you contact a criminal defense attorney as soon as possible. Our Bellingham DUI law office is located in downtown Bellingham next to Whatcom County District Court and only 2 blocks from Bellingham Municipal Court. For information on your case and help immediately, contact our Whatcom County DUI attorneys.

If you have been arrested do not hesitate to contact one of our aggressive King County DUI attorneys today.
Island County includes Whidbey Island and Camano Island and the county as a whole is considered a difficult place to fight a DUI charge.
