Clyde Hill DUI Attorneys

Facing a DUI? You Need a Hero!

After you get charged with a DUI, it can be far too easy to be convinced that you’re a villain, which is why it is so important to find a hero! At DUIHeroes, we proudly defend locals in Clyde Hill from the worst that can happen after getting pulled over, arrested, and charged for a DUI. We dedicate ourselves to seeing our clients as more than the things they are accused of doing. Too often, the criminal justice system and society look down on people who get into legal trouble for drunk driving. Let us stand by your side and remind you that you aren’t your DUI; you’re a person and a friend who made a common mistake and now want to find a way to put it behind you.

Our Clyde Hill DUI lawyers know that most DUI arrests happen outside of regular business hours, such as late on a Saturday night. That’s why we answer the phone 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, and 365 days a year. The moment you need us to stand up for you is the same moment that you can call 1-800-DUI-HERO for help.

Don’t go with an uncaring corporate defense firm across the lake. Contact DUIHeroes instead.

How We Help You Through a DUI

Driving under the influence (DUI) is a mistake that most drivers will make at one point or another. Whether they are pulled over for that mistake, or they will ever admit to it, is a different situation altogether. If you were charged with a DUI, then please know that you aren’t alone and you aren’t a criminal. You’re just someone who needs help, and that’s exactly why DUIHeroes is here. Our Clyde Hill DUI lawyers are ready to handle all aspects of your DUI case.

Even if you admit that you made a mistake and drove after drinking too much, that doesn’t mean that you should be slammed by the Washington State criminal justice system. You still deserve a chance to defend yourself as well as your rights and driving privilege. With us leading the way on the case, you will be prepared to do just that with confidence.

When working on your case, we can help by:

  • Initial consultations: During a no-cost consultation, we can review the key aspects of your case to determine the best ways to defend you.

BAC Tests & Field Sobriety Tests in Clyde Hill, WA

If you get pulled over for a DUI in Clyde Hill, then you will likely be told to take two different tests: field sobriety tests (FSTs) and blood alcohol concentration (BAC) tests. How you handle these tests can make a huge difference in how your DUI defense case will progress later.

Here’s what you should know about these tests:

  • Field sobriety test: Despite what the name implies, a field sobriety test is not designed to prove your sobriety. Instead, it is designed to give the officer probable cause to make an arrest. You can refuse to take a field sobriety test without an immediate legal consequence, so you usually should.
  • BAC test: A BAC test measures the chemicals in your blood via breath, urine, or blood test analysis. If you refuse to take a BAC test, then your driver’s license can be automatically suspended, even if you are completely sober. Before you take a BAC test at the police station, inform them that you want to call DUIHeroes at 1-800-DUI-HERO. We can quickly inform you if you should take the test or not.

DUI Penalties in Clyde Hill

No one should be unfairly punished by the criminal justice system. However, if you were charged with a DUI, it could happen to you. The state likes to heft heavy penalties even for first-time DUI convictions to try to deter people from drinking and driving again. This strategy fails to acknowledge that DUIs usually happen as honest mistakes and are not due to premeditation.

A first-time DUI conviction in Clyde Hill, WA can result in:

  • Up to 24 hours in the Clyde Hill PD jailhouse
  • Up to 15 days of electronic home monitoring
  • 90-day license suspension
  • One year or more of mandatory ignition interlock device use
  • More than $900 in fines paid to the state
  • Court-ordered alcohol or drug counseling

DUIHeroes can fight for you to make sure that the criminal justice system stays fair and honest. We know how to create defenses that argue for case dismissals, not-guilty verdicts, or significantly lowered sentencing requirements.

How a DUI Impacts Your Future

Losing money to legal fines and days to jail time is obviously not ideal. Yet you could recover from those losses sooner than you think. The real damage that a DUI conviction can cause is often seen in how it impacts your private and professional lives.

If you must drive to work or school each day, then losing your driver’s license could also cause you to lose those opportunities as well. If you have child custody obligations after a divorce, then you might struggle to meet them. If you take pride in your name and livelihood, then you will want to double down your efforts to fight DUI charges, which starts by teaming up with DUIHeroes.

Clyde Hill DUI Defense FAQ

Why is it important to hire a local Clyde Hill DUI attorney?

At DUIHeroes, we know how local officers, courts, and prosecutors act, which can give you an early benefit in your case. We can use this familiarity to build the right strategy for your case, whereas a corporate law firm in downtown Seattle might struggle due to its unfamiliarity.

What happens if I refuse to take a breathalyzer test in Clyde Hill?

If you refuse to take a breathalyzer test when pulled over for a DUI, then your driver’s license will be automatically revoked for one year. This administrative penalty can’t be challenged in criminal court, either. If you've been arrested for DUI, you need to call an attorney as soon as possible to start defending your rights.

How long will my license be revoked if I'm convicted of a DUI?

A first-time DUI conviction in Washington usually removes your license for 90 days. The more DUI convictions you have on your criminal record, the longer this license revocation becomes. It is possible to permanently lose your driving privilege due to multiple DUI convictions.
