Snohomish County DUI Pretrial Hearing Lawyer

Leveraging Pretrial Hearings for DUI Charges in Snohomish County, WA

After you’ve been arrested and arraigned for DUI in Washington, the next step is a DUI pretrial hearing. It is usually scheduled several weeks after your arraignment and bail hearing. At the DUI pretrial hearing, the state and the defendant tell the judge how they plan to proceed and what pretrial motions they plan on making. It is also an opportunity for your DUI defense attorney to discuss your case with the prosecutor, entertain plea bargain offers, or propose a plea bargain.

There are three outcomes possible as a result of the DUI pretrial hearing:

  • Both sides discuss the facts of the case and reach an acceptable resolution through negotiation or plea bargains.
  • Either side can request a continuance for additional time to prepare their case.
  • If no plea bargain or other resolution can be reach, a motion hearing and trial date is set.

The pretrial hearing is the first official hearing where your defense attorney can test the strength of the state’s case relative to the defense’s. If it’s clear to our team that the state is bringing a weak case, we may prepare for a plea bargain offer from the prosecutors or push ahead for dismissal. In either case, strategically strengthening your position at a pretrial hearing requires a truly experienced and skilled DUI lawyer in Snohomish County.
