DUIHeroes is pleased to announce that Attorney Jonathan Dichter recently secured a dismissal on behalf of a client facing charges for a second DUI offense in Everett, Washington. The case was a difficult one given the circumstances surrounding the arrest and the evidence against our client. With Attorney Dichter's extensive experience, negotiation skills, and positive relationship with local prosecutors, he was able to secure a significant victory.
According to police reports, our client was pulled over under suspicion of DUI after crossing lane dividers. The arresting officer reported that in addition to crossing dividers and weaving, our client fumbled with paperwork, failed all field sobriety tests, and gave a breath test of .137. The legal limit for DUI in Washington is .08. This was our client's second charge for driving under the influence.
Ultimately, Attorney Dichter was successful in negotiations with the prosecutor's office, and was able to have our client's charges dismissed. As a result, our client will not face the elevated penalties of a second DUI conviction, which can be costly, severe, and potentially damaging to one's future.
Attorney Dichter commented on the significant victory: “It's nice when I can show the prosecutors the weakness of their cases and they understand that it makes the case not prosecutable for them. Having a good negation relationship with them allows for those kinds of conversations. I'm very happy to get this result for my client.”
Attorney Dichter's recent case result speaks volumes about his professional abilities and record of success, which currently averages 90% of all DUI offenses reduced or dismissed. These types of results are also one of the primary reasons he has received a number of distinctions and achievements, including his inclusion to the 2014 Washington Super Lawyers® list of Rising Stars℠
