Snohomish County DOL Hearing Attorney
Protecting Your Driving Privileges from the DOL After a DUI
If you are arrested for DUI, you will need to address both the criminal charges against you as well as the administrative proceedings regarding actions to be taken against your driver’s license. There are specific steps to take and deadlines to meet in order to keep your license. If these are not done correctly, it can result in actions against your license that may otherwise have been avoided. Being unsure of what to do next can be unsettling and overwhelming, but you don’t have to face it alone.
At DUIHeroes, an experienced Snohomish County DOL hearing lawyer can fight to ensure you keep your license. You only have one week from the date of your arrest to attempt to save your driver’s license, so you can’t afford to wait. The good news is our team can help you navigate the Washington Department of Licensing while we prepare your defense in criminal court.
