Award-Winning Law Firm
When you hire Veitch Ault Defense, you deal one-on-one with your own lawyer rather than getting passed on to a Junior Attorney. In addition to reaching the resolution most favorable for our clients, we feel responsible for our clients’ peace of mind along the way as well. Every one of our clients is given their attorney’s personal cell number and is told to call, text, or e-mail any time they have questions. If your lawyer can’t get back to you right away for any reason, you will hear back within 24 hours, if not sooner.
Our attorneys are certified in administering the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration’s (NHTSA) Field Sobriety Tests (FST). They have been trained in the process and scoring of the physical tests you may have had to perform. Unless these physical tasks—which are designed for failure—are administered properly, their validity is “compromised.” Thus, the smallest details regarding these tests can be of utmost importance. Additionally, our attorneys have successfully completed the NHTSA ARIDE (Advanced Roadside Impairment Detection Enforcement) course. While some Washington State law enforcement officers have received this training, only a limited number of DUI defense attorneys in the State have successfully completed the training. Contact us now so we can start investigating your case right away!

Not necessarily. The vast majority of DUI cases do not go to trial. Whether or not your case will go to trial depends on far too many factors to list here.
As of January 1, 2009, anyone suspended for a DUI arrest or conviction is eligible for an "IGNITION INTERLOCK LICENSE." Further, one may be eligible to drive an "employer-owned vehicle" for work purposes if they apply for an "Employer Exemption."
Possibly. In the state of Washington, even if your reading is below the legal limit or there are no alcohol results, the police and prosecuting attorney will proceed if they believe that there is sufficient evidence to show that even though your alcohol concentration was below the legal limit, that your ability to drive was appreciably affected by alcohol, thus charging you with a DUI. This opinion will be based upon the officer's observations and the tests they conducted. Remember, the officer arrested you because they felt that your ability to drive was impaired, so DUI charges may still be a very real possibility.
