DUI criminal charges are the most common criminal charges around.  If you are facing a DUI charge, it is imperative that you consult with the best DUI lawyer you can find.  A DUI conviction can require a long jail term, thousands of dollars in fines, a loss of your driver’s license, probation, forced alcohol treatment, and more.  Even though DUI charges are often misdemeanor matters, they can be among the most complicated criminal charges.  A routine DUI case will often involve expert witnesses, scientific evidence, and potential constitutional claims.  Your average attorney can easily overlook defenses, pitfalls, and crucial evidence when dealing with a DUI case.  Therefore, hiring the best DUI attorney is absolutely vital if you are facing a DUI charge.  Priest Criminal Defense has experience with hundreds of DUI cases, involving trials on several dozen of those.  You can leave your case to chance, or you can call Priest Criminal Defense.

Domestic violence charges can turn your life upside down.  Even a simple fight between spouses can escalate quickly into an arrest and being charged with a domestic violence crime.  In Washington, police are required to make an arrest if they are called to a domestic disturbance and one person says it got physical.  Once an arrest is made, charges almost always follow.  Domestic violence charges always result in booking and, if you don’t bail out on the charge, facing a judge in court to be arraigned while in custody.  Almost always, the Court will enter a no contact order between you and the alleged victim, which can last a long, long time.  As you can see, it can be vital that you consult with an experienced domestic violence lawyer if you are facing a domestic violence criminal charge.

“I don’t want to answer any more questions and I want to talk to an attorney”  –A Smart Man

Priest Criminal Defense can assist you through all phases of the criminal justice system.  If you have become the suspect in any criminal investigation, you have the constitutional right to say “I don’t want to answer your questions and I want to talk to an attorney.”  If you tell the police that, they must immediately cease asking you questions and, as promptly as possible, given you the opportunity to call a criminal defense attorney.  Some people think that the police might “go easy” on them if they just cooperate and answer all police questions.  Some people even think they can talk their way out of trouble.  Both types of people are wrong.  In every one of those cases, the police want you to answer their questions so they can use your answers against you.  Without exception, you should stop talking and contact a criminal defense attorney to help you out.  Therefore, save the phone number above in your phone and don’t hesitate to exercise your constitutional rights to remain silent and to an attorney.  You will be glad you did.

What Clients Are Saying

Mr. Priest was very professional, knowledgeable, and actually cared about the outcome of my son’s case. He went above and beyond what any normal attorney would have done in assuring us throughout the process of what needed to happen, what was currently happening and what we were trying to get to happen. The cases he has, I am sure, are very trying, however, he gave us his full undivided attention when meeting with us. y family owes him a great deal and will definitely call on him again if needed. He comes highly recommended in our work circle as well. 5 Stars Mr. Priest !!!!! You earned it.
