Tacoma and Olympia DUI Defense Attorneys

Put our crew of former DUI Prosecutors at the helm of your DUI defense.


If you are arrested or charged with DUI in Tacoma, Olympia or Seattle, you need an experienced DUI attorney in your corner fighting for you. At Puget Law Group, our team of former DUI prosecutors are ready to help you through this stressful experience.

The DUI attorneys at Puget Law Group, including two former DUI prosecutors, have successfully defended thousands of people charged with DUI and other criminal offenses in Tacoma, Olympia, Seattle and throughout Western Washington. Dan is rated "10/10" and "Superb" by AVVO.

At Puget Law Group, our team of DUI defenders has over 50 years combined experience fighting DUI charges in Tacoma, Olympia and Seattle. 



As a former prosecutor, Tacoma DUI attorney Dan Gerl took over 40 cases to trial – the vast majority of which he won. Casey Arbenz worked as a DUI prosecutor before launching a successful career defending the accused with the Hester Law Group in Tacoma. Both Dan and Casey are rated 10.0 and "Superb" by AVVO.

Dan and Casey, along with the rest of the PLG defense team, now put their experience and skills to work defending those accused of DUI and other criminal offenses.

At Puget Law Group, we are very successful at beating DUI and other criminal charges.

Since our founding, over 95% of our DUI cases have resulted in either reduced or deferred charges, or dismissals. Each case is different, of course, and results are always case specific.

With offices in Tacoma, Olympia, and Bremerton, we take your situation seriously and we promise to fight our hardest for you.But don't take it from us – see what our clients have to say about our results.




It is possible to beat a DUI charge – but you need to act now.

You only have 7 days following arrest to request a hearing from the Department of Licensing in order to fight your suspension. And key evidence that may greatly help in your fight against both the DOL and the government could disappear over time unless you request it early.

And that's where we come in. At Puget Law Group we start working on your case immediately, often before your charges have even been filed. We get you pointed in the right direction and lead you every step of the way. You will never be unclear about what's going to happen next. Your fight is our fight.

“I was arrested for DUI. I hired Dan hoping it would make a difference. Dan got the case dismissed by arguing that the officer had no legal reason to stop me. I felt confident in Dan's knowledge of the law and aggressive approach in representing me.”

You don't have to pay us extra to go the extra mile.

At Puget Law Group, we typically charge a flat fee – which means you pay one amount for our legal services. That means one fee for our services and nothing more to pay.

This includes DOL representation, motion hearings, and even trial. We don't charge by the hour; we don't come after you later for more money if your case takes more work than originally thought. And we never plead clients out just to resolve a case.

We understand that putting your faith and your fate in a DUI attorney's hands is one of the most important and stressful decisions you can make, which is why we offer a complimentary "Strategy Session" (by phone or in person) to discuss your case and your particular concerns. Once we've had a chance to talk, we will have a better idea of what will be involved in your case, and can tell you exactly how much it will cost you.

Nobody ever plans in advance for a DUI arrest. We know that paying for an attorney when charged with a DUI can be difficult. We will be as flexible as possible with you and work with your budget. We offer payment plans for those clients who qualify, and we accept all major credit cards.
