October 2011 King County District Court Case
A Client hires Mark W. Garka for her first time DUI. The Municipal Officer is subpoenaed to appear at her DOL hearing. The Municipal Officer fails to appear despite being served a subpoena. The DOL Hearing Officer dismisses the DOL action and the Client wins. The Client follows Mark W. Garka's advice by doing the following early: community service, an alcohol evaluation, follow-up to her evaluation, and victim impact panel. After negotiations, her DUI case is reduced from a DUI charge to a Negligent Driving charge. Mark W. Garka's client does not serve jail time, does not lose her license, does not need SR22 insurance, nor need an Ignition Interlock Device (IID) installed. She leaves her pre-trial hearing with no further obligations to the Court.
