Renton Law

About 8 months ago I was arrested for my first DUI. Went to the station and had a BAC of 0.09. I've done pre-trials and will probably have to set my case for trial. I've been told that my case is an easy drop to neg 1 or reckless driving..but apparently negotiation is not an option right now. Kind of nervous
In my experience, State prosecutor's in King County are not currently reducing to Negligent or Reckless driving on the...
will they combine all of them together from one state to another
No. You'll have to deal with each case separately in each state.
I am pending a DUI charge from February of 2012 in the State of WA. The case is now at a point of either pleading guilty or going to trial. I am due to relocate to Los Angeles the last week of July for work and I am not getting a straight answer from anyone as to the following: A) Will the WA State criminal charge "90 day suspension" show as served concurrent with the WA State administrative suspension that was served completed if the CA DMV goes to issue me a license? B) WA State requires first time offenders to have an IID on their vehicle for one year in order to operate a motor vehicle in the state of WA. Since I am moving to CA, would this still be required? If I get the IID installed in WA and later get a CA license, will I still need it?
Don't ask WA attorneys to comment on CA law unless they are licensed in both States! Generally, if you have a...
I was arrested for dui in dec. 2012. I refused the BAC. I have an attorney and tomorrow is my final court date. he called today and said I am looking at a no contest. That he submitted paperwork for it to be reduced to negligent driving on Wednesday and hasn't heard back. I am confused at what exactly is involved when I plead no contest. I do know its 24hrs jail time and 20 hours probation/ community service. And also the breathalyzer had to be installed 2 years. My confusion is how it will effect my current employment. The company doesn't employ felons or people on probation. my attorney does know about this. So tomorrow if I say no contest. What am I actually saying? And what are all details/ consequences of pleading to no contest.
You need to speak with your attorney about what you are agreeing to. You should not enter a plea until you understand...
I am getting charged with a DUI of .20mg of Oxycottin, and since this is my first DUI, I felt no need for a Attorney and go for the Public Defender. But when my Public Defender offered me a plea deal of pleaing guilty on my Pre-Trial as the deal, I noticed she is not concerned whether or not I get charged with this or not. I am highly willing to fight this so I did not take her offer, so now I am reconsidering a Lawyer of my choice instead. But have doubts since I am so close to Trial if my case will be handled properly on switching Lawyers. And whether if it is better off to keep the public defender since she has already been dealing with my case. Or hire my personal lawyer????
Many public defenders are very good. The problem with the public defender is that you can't change. If you're not...
I know this question has been asked before but there is no clear answer because it seems to depend on the border agent checking ID. So if I don't declare that I have a neg 1 in Washington State and let's say I get unlucky and have to go to secondary. They look up my info and see neg 1 will that cause current and future problems at the border? I mean there is NOTHING clear if a neg 1 is ok or not ok to enter Canada as a US citizen from my research. I have a deferred neg 1 that will be off my record in December 2014 as long as I fulfill the deferral guidelines. I like to visit Canada a few times a year. Please give me your best answer from experience that you have heard from your clients, friends, associates or even yourself. Thank you.
I have absolutely no idea whether the Canadian authorities would have any problem with that, but apparently the US...
I have been through the legal process of a DUI conviction. My Lawyer, was very helpful in dismissing the DOL hearing and I was found guilty of a first DUI charge and served my sentence. I was not required to have treatment. The prosecutor and assessment agency called for it, but the Judge felt it was a one time thing, and did not require it in my sentencing. Now I am unable to reinstate my license, as my suspension has been fulfilled and my Interlocking License is expired. I was not aware that the DOL required treatment. I spoke with my Lawyer, and he said he would look into it and contact the DOL. Both the Court and Assessment Center recommended my Lawyer stepping in. Well, unfortunately, he last contacted me one month ago about this (my suspension ended 3/29/2013). I have called him at least 2-3 times a week, and he is nowhere to be found. Won't return my phone calls, even after promising he would contact me. I was told by another Lawyer that I cannot seek other counsel, until I terminate him as my Attorney. Is a voice message considered termination? Thank you for your help. Very frustrated, Julie
All you have to do is retain a new attorney and that attorney can file a notice of substitution so that old attorney is...
