New DUI Ruling by Snohomish County District Court

November 25th, 2015 No comments

On November 17, 2015, the Snohomish County District Court judges ruled that the Prosecution and the Washington State Patrol must provide full information to DUI defense attorneys concerning the new police Draeger breath test instruments now being used in DUI cases. The new Draeger instruments were introduced in Snohomish, Skagit, Whatcom and Island Counties in early January 2015. They replaced the old Datamaster breath test instruments.

The Snohomish County Prosecution, the Washington State Patrol and the Draeger manufacturer had all been resisting DUI defense attorney requests for the information on the Draeger operating systems.

Lynnwood / Shoreline DUI attorney Paul Hanson participated with other local DUI attorneys to obtain this favorable ruling for DUI clients.

DUI charges for the Non US Citizen

November 24th, 2015 No comments

If you are not a US Citizen, getting a DUI conviction is much more serious. Even a very old DUI conviction can really hurt you. Immigration authorities can lock you up in detention centers, then deport you. The best defense is to show the immigration authorities that you"ve obtained alcohol / drug treatment and fully rehabilitated yourself. And getting a good, experienced DUI attorney who truly understands the serious immigration consequences non citizen clients face with a DUI charge. Lynnwood / Shoreline attorney Paul Hanson works closely with local immigration lawyers when his DUI clients are not US citizen.
