When you or someone you care for has been charged with driving under the influence (DUI), it can be a frightening experience, especially if law enforcement threatens you with consequences. You must understand the importance of acting quickly after an arrest to hire a skilled Tacoma DUI lawyer to defend you. Being convicted of this type of crime can lead to imprisonment, large fines, probation, suspension of your license, and professional consequences. Our team at The Law Offices of Krupa & Clark is here to provide you with the representation you need.

We offer the aggressive defense for the following DUI-related charges:

  • First time DUI
  • Multiple DUI offenses
  • BUI
  • DUI causing injury
  • DUI with accident
  • DUI and drugs
  • Federal DUI
  • Felony DUI
  • Military DUI
  • Underage DUI


When a person has a breath test over a certain level or refuses the breath or blood test, the department of licensing can attempt to suspend the person’s driver’s license. In such cases, the arresting officer will typically provide you with written notice of such a proposed action. If you are facing this situation It is critical that you contact an experienced Tacoma criminal defense attorney right away. You will only have 20 days from the date of the breath test to request a hearing or the suspension of your license will go into effect automatically.


Depending on the circumstances of your arrest, there is a wide range of defense strategies we can build on your behalf. For example, if you suspect that the Breathalyzer equipment was not working correctly, we can argue that the testing was not sufficient evidence. Or if the initial reason to pull you over and ask you to prove your sobriety was questionable, we may be able to have the case thrown out or the charges reduced.

Whatever the case may be, you need an experienced Tacoma DUI attorney on your side. Call us now at (253) 573-1000 for a free consultation.
