What to know BEFORE you get stopped

Speak to your attorney first!

If you are stopped, identify yourself but everything else you tell the police will be used against you. Do not engage in casual chit-chat with them – discipline your mouth, please. Demand they immediately put you in touch with me at 425-367-1122 or a public defender.

Politely but firmly tell the officer:

  • I do not consent to any search or detention.
  • I want my attorney or a public defender & help reaching them.
  • I am not answering ANY questions.
  • If I'm suspected of DUI for alcohol and/or drugs, then:
    • I will not take a PBT (Portable Breath Test) or any Field Sobriety Coordination Tests.
    • I will provide breath samples at the police station or take a blood test.

So... Be Quiet and Wait for Me!
