"Atty. Kim E. Hunter, a leading Tacoma DUI attorney, has successfully defended countless cases in the Washington courts. As a testament to her impressive track record, we are happy to announce that just recently she was able to have a client’s DUI case commuted to a mere reckless driving charge. That’s the kind of service you can expect to get from Atty. Kim, who is described as one of SuperLawyers.com’s “Rising Stars.” As you might know, the State of Washington does not take DUI cases lightly. Even if you’re a first-time offender, you will face mandatory license suspension, huge fines, and possible incarceration. You’ll also experience a hike in your automobile insurance premiums, and employers may have qualms about hiring you."

"In the event that you also find yourself arrested under suspicion of a DUI, remain calm. Contrary to popular belief, there are ways to beat a DUI charge. Immediately inform the apprehending officer(s) that you wish to talk to a Kent DUI attorney. Once you are face to face with your lawyer, try to recall the following details: Why You Were Stopped Police officers cannot flag down a vehicle simply because they suspect a driver is impaired. A standard traffic violation such as swerving or a busted tail light must be the reason why you were stopped; otherwise, the DUI charge will be shot down in court. For your reference: in Washington, an anonymous report is not sufficient cause for pulling you over."

The danger of random searches can strike a chord with Washington State residents as well as with any American. Some of these situations have even resulted in the defendants suing the authorities for unwanted searches. If you have been the subject of an illegal search or seizure and you feel that some corners were cut, a professional such as a criminal lawyer in Tacoma can help you. One of the most important angles your lawyer can argue is unlawful entry by the police into your premises even before you read the warrant in full. In the article noted above, Komisaruk suggested opening the door if prompted by the officers and close it behind you. Get the warrant from the serving officer and read it on the spot line for line, looking for the subject address, date, the judge’s signature, and details of any items to be searched.

If you find yourself on the hot seat for drunken behavior around the time of a sporting event, you can seek legal representation through the assistance of a DUI attorney in Federal Way like Atty. Kim E. Hunter. A full accounting of the facts from both sides usually helps in getting a better picture of what happened, which your lawyer can then use in their arguments. In the mascot case noted above, the St. Petersburg police reported that one Trevor James Martin allegedly wrapped his arms around Raymond’s neck every time the latter went close to the railings. The mascot was forced to shake loose during the incident.
