Robert is an excellent lawyer . He is also very communicative and guided me through the entire confusing process of the legal system. I was facing 2 new duis in a short timespan and a violation of a deferred prosecution. 3 total charges . He helped me resolve this issue by negotiating my new duis into reckless driving charges. I highly recommend him.

I received a DUI for an interesting situation and Rob helped me through everything. Not only would he call to give me updates, but was also hands on with seeing how my personal life was. Rob makes time for people even when he’s packed with work, and somehow manages to keep calm and collected through it all. If you’re looking to hire a lawyer I would recommend Rob to anyone.

I was referred to Robert by another attorney when looking to see if he could help with a situation I found myself in. I made a terrible mistake and a bad choice during a difficult time in my life and the result left me feeling at the end. In my initial meeting with Robert he not only talked me off the ledge but he got me started down the path of resolving the issue. Despite the situation, and the absolutely terrible set of circumstances I presented him with, Robert was able to compartmentalize and put a plan of action into place. Robert had a real belief in me as an individual and treated me as such. He was kind, thoughtful, intelligent and understanding. I left the initial meeting with a feeling of some hope and not quite so bad about myself personally. Robert then worked tirelessly to get the best possible result imaginable and made it happen. I had to put my work in at his instruction and everything asked of me was both beneficial personally and toward the resulting outcome. Great service like this does not come without a price tag but is was the best money I have spent in a long while. Part of making a mistake is owing up to it and it does come with a cost. The resulting conclusion of my case has allowed me to move forward with my life in a positive manner and I owe that to Robert. I have never endorsed a professional in my life before this point but having been referred to Robert I feel it is important that I pass on my experience so that others may share in the same good fortune. Consider paying it forward. If at any point you find yourself in the need of a professional in Robert's line of work I cannot urge you enough to contact him and at least have the initial meeting. I am confident you will find that I need a caring individual who is exceptional at what he does. Thank you.

Robert James Ault is a good person who defies the lawyer stereotype. This is someone you want in your corner. He cares and will do everything in his power to help you. Without judgment of whatever circumstances led you to needing his council. I'm not anticipating I'll ever need him again, but if I do he is my first and only call.

I was referred to him from a family friend, I spoke with him and he was very honest and upfront about the process. As soon as I got an official court date I called him and hired him immediately. He went through all the reports, all witness statements and was able to contact or see the opinions of all parties involved. This led to a dismissal of the case after he began to question the prosecutor about the holes in stories and put pressure on them. He is a very tactical and also intelligent attorney. Very highly recommended.

Robert helped me with some minor infractions that the prosecutor wanted to turn into a big deal. Rob handled things with amazing professionalism and did not let them play their games. Worth every penny, I would recommend him to a family member without any hesitation.

Robert Ault is one of the most assuring guys in his field. He made me feel like more than just a client while working with him through my case. Very straightforward and non judgemental. If you want a lawyer who both works hard, and has credentials to back it up Robert Ault should be amongst the first that you consider.

Hiring this attorney to represent me after I made a poor decision. Was definitely the best decision I made all year, and clearly the best option for my life going forward. I could not have asked for a better attorney. He has definitely left an impression on my life and I am forever grateful to have found him. This guy is the best out period.

Rob was very knowledgeable about the law and came up with a good game plan to defend me against my arrest. He also knew what the prosecutors were going to try and do which definitely aided in my defense.

We hired Rob to defend us in a DUI case. We were hoping to get the charges/penalties reduced. That wasn't going to be enough for Rob. No. Rob was able to get all charges dismissed. No penalties imposed. I will strongly recommend Rob to anyone I know who is charged with a DUI without hesitation.

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.
