Prior Convictions for DUI in Seattle

Are you facing a 2nd, 3rd or 4th DUI charge?

If you have an earlier conviction for DUI and are facing new charges, you may be subject to increased penalties. Pursuant to RCW 46.61.5055, those who are considered repeat DUI offenders face exceptionally severe consequences should they be convicted again, such as increased prison time, higher fines, more severe license penalties, electronic home monitoring, sobriety treatment and/or required insurance. Our attorney identifies the flaws and errors in the case and implements the best course of action for your defense.

If you have prior DUI convictions and a new DUI charge is brought against you, our review and evaluation of the evidence is critical with regard to the final outcome of your case, since the penalties are extremely harsh for repeat offenders. The most serious penalties are implemented against those who have four prior DUI convictions within 10 years. With such an extensive prior record, the new DUI charge will be filed as a Class C felony with very serious consequences that will have a negative impact on your life.

Mark C. Blair has no rival in his field in Seattle. A consummate professional. Communication was brief, straightforward, easy to understand, and without a typical condescending tone you can sometimes experience from attorneys on top of their field. Correspondence was timely and always affective. Any in need of criminal defense, should have a conversation with Mr. Blair, and you will quickly see and feel, no further contacts, referrals, or phone calls need be made. The money and time that can be saved by streamlining future contact and collateral damage in the sentencing process will far and away be worth every penny of the fee structure. Thank you very very much Mark Blair. N.Mark French
Sara Kim of BlairKim is a great attorney. I had never before had representation or dealt with the legal system and she made it very easy for me. She converted the legalese into laymans terms for me and helped me to understand the steps of the process. When I hesitated on certain decisions, Sara gave me the confidence and encouragement to proceed – especially since it was most beneficial to me in the long run. Sara is very straightforward and professional while also being personable and pleasant to deal with. Tamara
Sara Kim was the perfect lawyer for our situation. We were determined not to involve the courts in our divorce. Within the first 30 minutes of consultation, Sara proposed an equitable formula for division of property which we used to negotiate an agreement that felt fair to both of us. Our flat fee arrangement with Sara covered the filing of paperwork which alleviated much pressure for us during a very stressful time. I highly recommend Sara for her flexibility, professionalism, and efficiency. Carrie
