Commonly Asked Questions About DUI Charges

At the end of the week, going to the bar or relaxing with some Sunday night football is probably a well-deserved break. Driving home afterward may not seem like a big deal. Alcohol works differently for everyone, and a few beers for you may be very different than a few beers for someone else. However, if you are pulled over for drunk driving, you need to address the problem head-on.

Now, you may be wondering what to do if you get pulled over for drunk driving and what to expect afterward. We have tried to answer some of our most frequently asked questions on this page. Please keep in mind that even though these answers will probably apply to you, you should still talk to one of our lawyers about your case.

What Are The Penalties For A DUI/DWI In Washington?

The consequences for a DUI depend on your individual circumstances. The law treats underage drivers differently than those over 21 years old. It treats regular drivers differently than truckers. In general, you can expect to pay an expensive fine, have new restrictions on your license and face jail time. To find out what to expect for your case, in particular, call our office and speak to an attorney.

How Can A DUI Conviction Affect My Future?

A conviction has direct consequences like license suspensions and fines. It also has long-term consequences. A conviction will show up on your background checks, make it impossible for you to drive a car professionally and make accessing public services very difficult.

What If I Was Consuming Something Other Than Alcohol?

Certain drugs, even prescribed medications, can lead to a DUI/DWI charge. Your case will depend on what you consume, details in the police report and other factors.
