DUI / DWI Defense headline graphic

Ted C. Barr & Associates represents clients who have been arrested and charged with the offense of "Driving Under the Influence" (DUI or DWI) and "Boating Under the Influence" (BUI).

We represent you from the very beginning of your case through the conclusion, and even later if necessary. Our goals are to ensure that your legal rights are protected and achieve a favorable outcome, while being affordable.

We investigate the events leading up to and resulting in your arrest. We review police reports and BAC records, interview witnesses, and obtain audio/video tapes if made by the police.

We obtain your input and then develop a legal strategy tailored to the circumstances of your case.

Ted personally represents you in pretrial negotiations with the prosecutor, at pretrial motions, during trial, and throughout the entire case. Whether the charges are dropped, are reduced, a deferred prosecution is obtained, or the case goes to trial, we aggressively protect your interests from beginning to end.

DOL DUI Defense Representation headline graphic

When you have been arrested for a DUI offense, in addition to the criminal charges you face in court, you will normally be subject to a separate suspension or revocation of your driver's license by the Washington State Department of Licensing (DOL) regardless of the outcome of your court case.

You have only 20 days from the date of your arrest to request a hearing to prevent an automatic loss of your driving privilege.

Depending on your circumstances, you face a 90-day to 2-year loss of your driver's license. If your license is suspended or revoked, you will be required to maintain high-risk SR22 insurance for 3 years at up to 3 times the normal insurance rates. You may also be required to have an ignition interlock device installed on your car, and be subject to additional enhanced penalties for 7 years.

We are available to represent our clients in all matters before the Washington State Department of Licensing, especially those related to a DUI arrest.

One of the many advantages of choosing Ted C. Barr & Associates to represent you in your DUI and/or DOL cases is flexibility. In other words, you can hire us for either case or both, at the same time or separately. We like to give you as many options as possible.

Another advantage is that we use a DOL consultant (a retired DOL director) on each of our driving-related cases. He assists us in achieving superior results and assists you with any other licensing problems you may encounter.
