Welcome to Seattle DUI Attorney Ted C. Barr headline graphic
We all make mistakes in judgment ... no one sets out to get arrested for a DUI. But lapses in judgment do occur and can have a major impact on our lives and our families.

When such an unfortunate event like this does happen, it is important to get the best possible legal help immediately. Inaction or insufficient legal advice can and will adversely affect your job, your insurance rates and even your freedom. Long-term consequences of a DUI conviction can even prevent you from traveling outside the State of Washington or the United States on business matters or personal vacations.

Seattle DUI attorney Ted C. Barr photoTed Barr is the "Seattle DUI Attorney" — one of the Seattle area's most experienced and effective DUI defense attorneys.

(Ted is also an internationally recognized expert in the game of backgammon and author of the best-selling book Barr on Backgammon.)

If you have been arrested for a DUI offense, it is important you consult with legal counsel sooner rather than later. Ted offers a free 2 hour initial consultation and often accommodates clients' work schedules and need for payment plans.
