DOL Hearing Lawyers in Washington State

When you get a ticket for drunk driving, the government has two opportunities to deprive you of your driver’s license. They can take away your license after a criminal DUI trial. They can also suspend your driver’s license after a Department of Licensing Hearing (DOL). Many people are unaware that the DOL has this power. Our attention to detail ensures that we take every opportunity to defend your right to drive. If you have been arrested for a DUI, you have no time to lose since you must request a DOL hearing in writing within 20 days of your date of arrest or risk forfeiting your right to contest the administrative action.

What to expect at a Washington State Department of Licensing (DOL) Hearing

Once you send in your notice, you will be scheduled for a hearing. The sole purpose of the DOL hearing is to verify that the police officer complied with the Washington Administrative Code throughout the DUI process. You need a quality advocate to ensure that the police officer is held accountable because the DOL hearing examiner is not there to help you find the inconsistencies in the police officer’s story. Did you really cross the fog line? How well did you perform on the field sobriety tests? Did the police officer comply with the 15 minute observation period? Having a zealous, detail-oriented lawyer is vital because it could mean the difference between a license suspension, high risk insurance rates, ignition interlock device and no suspension at all.
