Washington's DUI laws are among the toughest in the nation, that's why even if you have a completely clean criminal history, but blow a BAC over the legal limit, the DOL will notify you that it intends to suspend your driver's license. This also holds true even if you refuse any voluntary field sobriety tests, the DOL will look to suspend your license for at least 90 days and possibly up to a year. Suspension can be avoided however, if you file a timely hearing request within 20 days of the incident. One out of four adults will be arrested for DUI sometime in their life; how you respond to the arrest may mean the difference between a suspended license and maintaining your license.
After getting arrested for DUI, life must go on and your obligations at work and with your family simply don't cease to exist, that is why after being arrested for DUI you should contact a reputable and experienced attorney who will not only assist you in how to mitigate possible license suspension but also look at your unique situation and tailor an individualized plan of action.
