Being accused of Driving Under the Influence (DUI) in Washington can feel like the whole world is against you. You need a strong advocate on your side. Suffering the accusation may possibly be the most stressful and terrifying event of a lifetime.  The arrest can bring humiliation on the roadside, at the police precinct, and in the courtroom. Without a driver's license, some people lose their jobs.  The threat of a jail or prison sentence raises nightmarish concerns about personal safety. And a conviction for DUI can create a permanent criminal record following a person for the rest of his or her life and exclusion from Canada.

Kevin Trombold is a  Seattle DUI attorney who has travelled the entire State of Washington defending people just like you for nearly twenty five years.

He has successfully obtained not guilty verdicts, dismissals, and reduced charges for their clients quickly, and quietly.

Quality Representation at a Highly Regarded Firm

Kevin is dismayed by the growth of for-profit criminal defense mills in the Puget Sound, where getting money in the door and cases out seems to be the only goal. Working the charges down from DUI to negligent driving on a case where the client has blown a .18 breath test, takes time and expertise. Serious Vehicular Homicide or Assault charges are reduced after combining knowledge, wisdom and creativity with old fashion hard work and labor. Kevin is meticulous about keeping his caseload manageable so that he can focus his energy and expertise on a small number of cases and fight each as if it was his last. He is reliable and will not send an inexperienced substitute to a hearing.

Why Hire a Seattle DUI Attorney?

DUI charges dominate the Seattle Court System, the Tacoma Court System, and the Everett Court System.  Seattle alone handles a similar number of DUI cases when compared to Pierce and Snohomish Counties combined.   A hardened Seattle DUI attorney with the seasoned experience of several decades of DUI litigation in the Seattle DUI Court System is what you need to handle a DUI anywhere in the State of Washington.  You need to bring experience to the table with you when negotiating the impact of your DUI arrest on your life.  Don't let a Seattle, Tacoma, or Everett DUI ruin your life.

The Machine is the same throughout the State of Washington.  The same exact machines are used at every police precinct in the State.  They all come from and are managed by the Washington State Patrol office in Seattle, located above the intersection of I-5 and 520 - the Roanoke Station.

Driving Under the Influence (DUI) is a very serious offense that the Seattle DUI Judges take very seriously.  You need a highly trained DUI defense attorney who understands the complex nature of DUI charges in Seattle and where you were arrested.  Over the last twenty years, Kevin has watched the laws in Seattle DUI cases get tougher and tougher.  The Judges now tend to impose ignition interlock devices at the initial hearing called the arraignment.   What the Seattle Judges do, the rest of the State will soon do.  Bringing the full context to negotiations in your case will aid to minimize this unfortunate incidents impact on your life.

While other more serious felonies can be removed from your record, Seattle DUI gross misdemeanor convictions are permanent on your record.  You can remove many felonies from your record but a Seattle DUI must be admitted at all job interviews for the rest of your life.  You need a serious, well trained Seattle DUI attorney to keep this harsh punishment from following you the rest of your life.

While many felony charges might not have any supervision beyond one or two years, Seattle DUI convictions carry a five year probation period that the Seattle DUI Judges routinely impose unless proper defenses are made and asserted by an experienced Seattle DUI attorney.  Kevin does that in every case.

While many felony charges might not  carry mandatory jail time if reduced to lessor crimes, Seattle DUI charges have strict negotiation standards.  Kevin is the kind of experienced Seattle DUI attorney that knows what defenses are needed to reduce a Seattle DUI to something that does not mandate jail.   Kevin knows the arguments made against Seattle DUI defendants and how to counter those arguments.  Kevin has twenty years of experience as a Seattle DUI attorney understands the Seattle DUI prosecutor's tactics.

A Seattle DUI attorney should be trained in the administration of the Standardized Field Sobriety Tests so that they can properly cross examine the Seattle Police DUI Squad. Kevin Trombold is trained to administer the Standardized Field Sobriety Tests and has graduated from an overview course of the Drug Recognition Expert training course.
