Claimed Lawyer Profile

I defended my first DUI in 1969, and what I've learned during 40 years of daily combat in the courtroom is that there is no such thing as a DUI case that can't be won.

Today, I work alongside a team of experienced Seattle DUI lawyers to defend the rights of people accused of driving under the influence. Call 1-866-822-1230 today and put our 75 years of combined experience to work for you.

At Cowan, Kirk & Gaston, DUI litigation is our passion. We have spent decades refining our strategies for handling these difficult and complex cases on your behalf. Although many lawyers and law firms take on drunk driving cases, I believe that our Seattle DUI attorneys' focus on and experience with DUI law gives us a unique ability to help you:

Defend DUI Charges
Protect Your Driver's License
Get an Occupational Driver's License
Handle Pretrial DUI Litigation
Take on the DataMaster Breath Test

Over the years, my partners, associates, and I have become known for tenaciously defending our clients at every turn. The prosecutors know that I never take the easy way out. When you choose the Seattle DUI defense lawyers of Cowan, Kirk & Gaston, the prosecution will know that you are prepared to challenge every pillar of their case - and that your attorneys will stand by you every step of the way.

In addition to actively practicing DUI litigation, the attorneys of Cowan, Kirk & Gaston are also proud to contribute to the practice of DUI law nationwide. I literally wrote the book on how to defend DUIs in this state: Defending DUIs in Washington, a textbook for other lawyers who defend these difficult and complex cases.

In 1995, along with eleven lawyers from around the country, I founded the National College for DUI Defense, which is presented each year at Harvard Law School. I've lectured in 19 states to other lawyers on how to defend DUI cases. My experiences have taught me one simple truth: if you bring to the courtroom the ironclad will to win, coupled with a commitment to know more about the case, the facts, and the science involved in DUIs than anyone else in the courtroom, success will follow.
