Ashbach Law Offices, LLC has long provided aggressive defense for clients charged with DUI in Washington State. Having obtained “not guilty” verdicts at trial, dismissals on suppression motions, and reductions in charges, we have the experience necessary and the reputation with courts and prosecutors required to obtain the most favorable results possible. To learn more about traffic defense for DUI and Physical control accusations, and results, please visit our DUI page.

Hit and Run Attended and Hit and Run Unattended

Our office has a strong track record of having hit and run charges dismissed or significantly reduced. Hit and Run Attended is a gross misdemeanor and results in a year license revocation, whereas Unattended does not typically result in suspension or revocation and is a simple misdemeanor. Felony Hit and Run also can exist where injuries occur. To learn more about our traffic defense practice on Hit and Run allegations, and results, please visit our Hit and Run page.

Negligent Driving

Negligent Driving charges are often considered “baby dui.” They do not typically, but can, carry license and interlock ramifications. Often, DUI cases are resolved via an amendment to Negligent Driving First Degree, although in some instances we have had DUIs resolved via Negligent Driving Second Degree. To learn more about our traffic defense practice for Negligent Driving charges, and results, please visit our Negligent Driving page.

Reckless Driving and Racing

Our office routinely represents clients charged with Reckless Driving and Racing allegations. A reckless driving or racing conviction can result in a minimum 30-day license suspension, plus SR-22 insurance. The suspension and higher insurance often pose the risk of job loss/disqualification, so strong traffic defense is necessary. Our office knows how to handle these cases, and recent results include “not guilty” at trial, outright dismissal of charges, reductions to infractions, and reductions to charges that do not have license/insurance/employment consequences.
