Washington State has one of the toughest laws in the nation on driving under the influence of intoxicants. Our highly experienced defense team stands ready to give you the toughest legal defense. Immediately after you or someone who has received a DUI arrest, your next steps can have an important and irreversible impact on the outcome of the case.
The Lustick, Kaiman & Madrone team is here to provide you the urgent legal advice you need right over the telephone. On weekends, we have an on-call attorney available to give you urgent assistance.
We diligently and thoroughly examine and then hyper-prepare for the DOL hearing and work toward building solid defenses in the court case as well. We examine your entire case from the moment you were initially stopped by the police to the moment when the breath ticket is printed by the Breathalyzer machine, and every even that fell between. We are keenly aware of the possible winning strategies and work very hard to obtain the best possible outcomes for our clients in both parts of the DUI case.

Adrian Madrone, with Lustick Kaiman & Madrone, reviewed the facts of my case, a DUI charge, and with his help and guidance we created a plan to fight my charge and get it reduced… Had it not been for Adrian Madrone my case could have gone very badly. With him as my defense attorney my life was not ruined by a gross criminal charge.”
