I can tell you the details of what you may be facing in a free initial case evaluation and consultation Fines up to $5,000, 5 years’ probation, ignition interlock device, potential loss or denial of employment, denial of student loans or school attendance, and perhaps noncitizen deportation and being unable to visit some countries outside the US (such as Canada) My clients say they felt better after their free initial case evaluation and consultation.

DUI arrestees stopped in Bellevue’s city limits by the Bellevue Police are prosecuted in Bellevue District Court. This is is one of the East Division satellite courthouse facilities of the large King County District court system. Bellevue’s courthouse is located just south of SE 8th near I-405 in South Bellevue.
Arrestees are booked into the Bellevue Jail and breath testing is administered there. If you refuse or if drugs are suspected, you will be taken to Overlake Hospital, still in custody, and your blood was drawn by a hospital phlebotomist and given to the police as evidence. Subsequently, this will be processed by the Washington state Toxicology lab, which can sometimes take months because they are severely backlogged, and some are then transported to King County jail.
If your DUI was a repeat offense or you got into an accident in which someone was hurt or major property damage occurred? Or if you had a child passenger (under age 16) in your vehicle? Then you may easily face the Bellevue court setting a bail and other burdensome conditions of release at your first appearance. These can include requesting the judge to impose Ignition Interlock Device (“IID”) or a ‘SCRAM” or ‘TAD’ device (another ankle bracelet that measures for alcohol consumption from your skin). Also, Electronic Home Monitoring (EHM”), and other conditions of release at your arraignment may be in place.
After all, you must have an experienced private Bellevue DUI Lawyer at that arraignment hearing representing you then and throughout your Bellevue District Court DUI prosecution.

First Hearing with Bellevue DUI Lawyer Phil Weinberg
The first hearing is a pretrial hearing and will ordinarily be roughly 3-8 weeks after the arraignment. Moreover depending upon how congested the court calendars are at the time. In fact, many things need to be discussed and done to prepare for that hearing.
I know how the system works and what the Bellevue City Prosecutors will likely seek from the court against you. Also, which private evaluators and treatment professionals to refer you to so we can prepare a .defense. In addition, there are almost always other things I will ask you to proactively do in order to optimize your defense. For example, attending a 90-minute DUI Victim Impact panel and obtaining an alcohol/drug evaluation (and in some cases, a mental-health assessment, too, if you are willing to do so). Other things could include performing some voluntary community service hours, when applicable.
Bellevue DUI Lawyer Phil Weinberg will fight to get your case dismissed
As an experienced DUI Lawyer, I think your case can be dismissed on good pretrial motion practice or won at trial. I will not recommend that you do these things, but you must want and agree to go to trial; this is never my decision – it is yours alone. But I help you reach your decision based upon the strengths and weaknesses of the case and the charge(s) filed against you. Also, there may be several pretrial hearings while I am negotiating or preparing for trial. Thus arguing pretrial motions to suppress evidence or dismiss the case, or both, and gathering all available evidence to support our defense plan.
