Kent DUI Attorney

Like most Kent DUI attorneys, the Webb Law Firm's attorneys travel to Kent, WA on a regular basis to defend those charged with a Kent DUI.  Whether you were arrested by a City of Kent Police Department officer or Washington State Patrol Trooper or Sheriff's Deputy in the Kent area, your case will be heard in one of two courthouses.  State cases for DUI are heard at the Maleng Regional Justice Center (MRJC) and City cases for DUI are heard at the Kent Municipal Courthouse.

At the Maleng Regional Justice Center DUIs which used to be heard at the King County District Court in Burien, WA have now been transferred to the 1st floor and there are 4 assigned judges hearing these types of cases.  A Kent DUI Attorney must be familiar with the processes and protocols necessary to effectively represent a client facing a Kent DUI and the Webb Law Firm has you covered.  We appear weekly in Kent courthouses in defense of those accused of DUI.
