The powers that be in Olympia seem to be at it yet again … they are again attempting to reduce the number of DUI offenses it takes to become a felony, not a gross misdemeanor. A similar measure was proposed last year, but did not get signed into law.
Earlier this month the state Senate unanimously passed a bill which would make a fourth DUI conviction within a ten-year period a felony. Currently it takes five DUI’s to be classified as a felony. The bill now goes to the House for consideration.
In this political hot bed of a climate for DUI’s it is now more important than ever to have a qualified Seattle DUI attorney in your corner when accused of driving under the influence. A qualified and respected Seattle DUI attorney can quite possibly save you thousands of dollars in court and insurance fees. Washington DUI laws are far too complicated for any ol’ attorney to handle. Be smart … hire a qualified and skilled Seattle DUI attorney when arrested for DUI in Washington State.
