If you have been arrested for DUI in Seattle, you need to make sure you understand your rights. The Law Offices of Steve Karimi can help you get the results you want by building a strong defense to the charges you are facing. You may be thinking that there is too much evidence against you and you should just plead ‘guilty' and get it over with. Many DUI attorneys will even advise you to do this too.
Seattle DUI attorney Steve Karimi, however, believes in fighting in order to get you the best results possible. He is a former prosecutor who uses his knowledge of the criminal justice system and DUI law experience to find the best defense for you. The strongest evidence against you in a DUI case is usually the results of the sobriety tests you take. There will likely be a breath or blood test that shows your blood alcohol concentration (BAC) as being over the legal limit (.08%) and you may have also taken a field sobriety test as well. When you take field sobriety tests, the dashboard camera in most police cars will record your actions. This video can be used as evidence in court to show the jury that you were intoxicated. If your Seattle DUI defense attorney can challenge this evidence and place doubt on its validity, the prosecution's case becomes weak and they will be more likely to give you a deal or reduce the charges.
Our Seattle DUI lawyers work to challenge every piece of evidence that we can in order to find some point of weakness. We will look at how the traffic stop and arrest was made, how the sobriety tests were administered and if any of your rights were violated along the way. It is important to remember that you always have defense options and you should speak to a Seattle DUI attorney as soon as you are arrested in Washington.
