May 2017 King County Municipal Court
Mark W. Garka's Client was contacted by the police while parked in the roadway one evening. He was asked to give a sample of his breath and he blew above the legal limit of 0.15 which requires an enhancement of punishment if he pleads guilty to a Driving Under the Influence charge (DUI). Mark W. Garka subpoenaed the officer for the Department of Licensing (DOL) hearing. The Washington State Hearing Officer found in favor of the Client and the hearing was won. Mark W. Garka negotiated a reduced charge of Reckless Driving (RD) and no jail time for his Client with the City Prosecutor As the result of this representation, Mark W. Garka's Client did not go to jail, there was a quick resolution to this case, and the Client was very pleased with the results.
