University DUI Defense

Helping Students Fight Their DUI Charges

University life offers many new and exciting experiences: parties, concerts, and athletic events, among others. And while many schools restrict or prohibit the use of drugs or alcohol during certain activities or on campus in general, these substances might still be present. While enjoying yourself at a school event, you might have a couple of beers or take a hit of marijuana. It may be fun at the time, but your actions can have substantial consequences later on. If you're under 21 or you drive while intoxicated, you could be charged with a crime. If you're convicted, you could be facing various penalties.

At DUI Heroes, we understand that a mistake you made during a social event can significantly impact your educational and professional future. That is why our university DUI defense lawyers are here to help fight your charge. Our firm focuses exclusively on DUI defense, and our team is skilled at developing legal strategies tailored for each person we serve. You can trust us to work hard toward obtaining the best possible outcome in your case.

Serving University Students in Washington

Washington State has dozens of colleges and universities. Both campus and local police recognize that many students partake in activities that may involve alcohol and/or drug use. As such, they are vigilant about watching areas where students usually hang out. Because of this, you might find yourself handcuffed and being taken to a station because of an alleged alcohol-related offense.

Such an experience can be frightening, especially if you've never had a brush with the law before. You might not know what to do or who to turn to. Dozens of questions may be going through your mind about what the arrest could mean for your future. At DUI Heroes, we're available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. This means that we're ready to provide the answers you need when you need them.

Our firm helps students from colleges and universities throughout Washington, including, but not limited to:

  • Gonzaga University
  • Seattle University
  • University of Washington
  • Washington State University

Know that our heroes will be on your side throughout your case. We will seek to help you avoid or minimize the harsh consequences of DUI conviction.

Defending Against a Variety of DUI Charges

Washington State has several laws prohibiting behavior related to alcohol consumption and drug use. Some of the statutes apply specifically to people under 21, while others are applicable regardless of age. No matter the charge you're facing, any case can be challenging to navigate, and a conviction can have lasting consequences.

Your school might impose sanctions on you, such as removing you from campus housing or expelling you. Later, when pursuing your career, you might find it difficult to get a job because of your criminal record (drug- and alcohol-related convictions may show up on your background check). Also, some professions may deny, suspend, or revoke professional licenses for people who've been convicted of DUIs.

In addition to the punishments listed above, if you're convicted of a drug- or alcohol-related offense, you will face criminal penalties, such as incarceration, probation, and/or fines.

The most effective way to work toward avoiding such consequences is to fight your charge with the help of a skilled university DUI defense lawyer.

At DUI Heroes, we provide legal representation for various types of charges, including:

  • DUIs
  • Marijuana DUIs
  • DUIs and drugs
  • Underage DUIs
  • Minors in possession

No matter the offense you've been accused of, you can trust that our team will aggressively defend you.
