There is nothing more terrifying than finding yourself in handcuffs for DUI. If you have been charged with DUI, you need to seek the help of an experienced Snohomish County DUI defense lawyer. I, Mark W. Garka, established the Law Office of Mark W. Garka, PLLC on the belief that many accused individuals are wrongfully arrested for DUI. My goal is to help you obtain the most positive outcome possible.

DUI Procedures in King County

If you have been arrested and charged with a DUI in King County, it’s important to know how your case will likely be handled. The first question is which court your case will be filed under and where it will be heard, which is often determined by what law enforcement agency made your arrest. If you were arrested by a City of Seattle Police Officer, your case will likely be heard in Seattle Municipal Court. Kirkland Police arrests are usually heard in Kirkland Municipal Court and Bellevue in Bellevue District Court. Conversely, if you were arrested by a Washington State Patrol officer, your case will likely be heard in a King County District Court, which is located in several locations throughout the Seattle area.

Don’t remember what agency made your DUI arrest? Check your ticket receipt, which should tell you on a line at the bottom of the document. If the “arresting agency” line reads “Washington State Patrol” (or, more often, “WSP”), or the King County Sheriff’s Office (“KCSO”), then your case will likely be headed for King County District Court.

As your DUI attorney, I can handle cases in any of these courts, and am familiar with the procedures and requirements of each one. Call my office for a consultation today.
