DUI DISMISSED ADMINISTRATIVELY: In 2017, my client was arrested, booked and jailed by Seattle Police for an alleged DUI and refusal to comply with a field sobriety test. While DUI charges were pending, the client received a notice from the Washington Department of Licensing informing him of his right to an administrative hearing within 30 days or his license would be suspended. I approached this issue as if it was already a criminal court case. After gathering all the evidence through the state's public records request, I was able to apply the facts, research applicable law and develop the case. I knew that if I could stop the DOL from suspending his license during the administrative hearing phase, he would most likely not be charged with a DUI. And I was correct. No criminal DUI charges were sought.  See DOL Rescinds License Suspension

After move-out and inspection she expected a $175.00 refund. Instead she received a $2,250.00 early termination assessment and other fees.

IRS LOSES FORECLOSURE CASE ON APPEAL: This client was served a lawsuit by the IRS to foreclose on his apartment complex. A number of motions were filed in this case by both sides.

I exploited this admission against interest and moved for dismissal, which the lower court denied. Nonetheless, we got a favorable appeal and remand back to the district court for further proceedings. The case was so well briefed, my client got a call from a civil defense attorney firm who offered to help him litigate the case at no cost. After consulting with me, he agreed and I remained in a "oversight" position making sure they were going to be working on his behalf. Judge Denies IRS Rule 60(b) Motion - Error Stands
