When you are facing the many consequences of a DUI arrest, it's important to keep everything in perspective.  While we naturally do not want any client to lose their license, the truth is that it does occasionally happen.  When it does it is important to be ready with an option to allow you to drive.  Our Blaine criminal defense lawyers will educate you about the option of a restrictive driver's license called the "ignition interlock license."  This license is easily obtained, although clearly inconvenient, and will allow you to driver during the suspension of your license.  You must however, install an ignition interlock device, obtain SR 22 insurance, and complete an application for the license.  To find out all the details about this license, call our office and speak to one of our criminal defense lawyers.  Blaine is not an easy place to defense any criminal charge but our DUI attorneys can help you if you are facing a DUI charge in Blaine, Washington.


There are also a number of more social stigmas that often come with an arrest for DUI in Washington. A Blaine DUI attorney understands that your reputation and time are valuable to you.  Some of the programs and conditions that come with a DUI arrest and possible conviction include an alcohol evaluation, an alcohol drug information school or alcohol / drug treatment if the organization deems you dependent,  DUI Victims’ Panel, and the installation of an ignition interlock device.  The Victims’ Panel is a group of people whose lives have been affected by drunk driving. It's imperative to participate in the programs and complete them prior to the resolution of your case if you wish to save the expense and inconvenience of being placed on supervised probation.  To discuss these programs and conditions in detail talk with a DUI lawyer in Blaine.


​Do you really need to hire a Blaine DUI defense lawyer? The simple and most obvious answer is absolutely yes.  A DUI charge can come with many serious repercussions, including jail time, steep fines, and losing your driver's license. A Blaine DUI defense lawyer is vital when dealing with all of these penalties, and navigating the legal system. At The Law Firm of David Jolly our attorneys primary roles are in defending those accused of DUI and will help you stay informed of your options at every stage of the DUI process.
