Are You Facing DUI Charges?

Being charged with a DUI offense typically involves two hurdles. First, there is the criminal case filed by a prosecutor. Second, at the same time, the Department of Licensing for Washington State and the Department of Motor Vehicles for Oregon State seeks to suspend or revoke your driving privileges. When facing a serious offense, such as a DUI, it is therefore important to hire experienced legal representation immediately to efficiently fight both cases. At the law firm of Marsh, Higgins, Beaty & Hatch, we understand the complex workings of the legal system from both sides and can help prepare your case in order to have your charges dismissed or the penalties reduced in your favor.
