About Us

Experience and Knowledge at Your Side

Our office handles over 400 DUI cases per year. This is not an area of criminal law that we dabble in from time to time. We stay on the cutting-edge of existing drunk driving laws and pending legislation and pass that knowledge on to you. We know the steps to take. We know the consequences you face.

We Don’t Plead Guilty As Charged
Pleading cases out to a charge of guilty may be the norm for other attorneys. That is not the practice at our firm. Pleading guilty as charged ignores your rights and assumes that every step in your arrest was made mistake-free. Blood tests are prone to error. Breath tests may be suspect due to poor calibration of a breathalyzer. Pleading guilty to DUI can result in the loss of a driver’s license that could lead to they loss of your job.

Olympia DUI and Criminal Defense

Our Representation Includes:

  • Attending all court hearings with you;
  • Answering all your phone calls, emails and questions within 1 business day (usually immediately);
  • Investigating your case;
  • Advising you of your options for your charges and giving you our opinion of what you should do;
  • Reviewing the accusations, witness statements, and law enforcement’s arrest report with you;
  • Aggressively fighting your case – this means negotiating with the prosecutor, filing legal motions, representing you in court and doing whatever it takes to get you the best deal possible for your case. (Please note, if you want fist pounding, shouting and screaming lawyers, we are not for you – that is not our style. We have found that we get the best results by being ourselves – civilized, honest and hardworking, not by grandstanding); and
  • Being there to “hold your hand” throughout the entire process – beginning to end, in court, in the office, and over the phone.

Our Goals:

  • Honesty
  • Direct and no-nonsense
  • Hard-working
  • Organized
  • Professional
  • Excellent at what we do
  • Provide top-notch customer service
  • Respected by judges, prosecutors and other lawyers
