Baumgarten Law Office PLLC today announced that Pullman attorney and former
deputy prosecutor Luke Baumgarten has created a non-profit professional
association called Eastern Washington DUI Defense Association and has
also been accepted into the National College for DUI Defense.
Mr. Baumgarten’s practice, formed in early 2010, has significantly
increased its emphasis on DUI defense over the past 3 years. “As
the legislature continues to create new DUI laws and amend current laws
to get tougher on offenders, Washington DUI law continues to become more
and more complex,” Baumgarten said. “Earlier this year I invited
a group of attorneys in Spokane to meet periodically to discuss DUI law
and defense-related issues. We’ve been meeting regularly since then
and even organized a presentation by a renowned expert in the physiology
of breath testing. Because I’d like this group to grow and to continue
supporting excellence in DUI defense on this side of the mountains, I
decided to form a non-profit which can hold money to finance future presentations
Baumgarten has also recently been accepted into the National College for
DUI Defense (NCDD), a nationally recognized nonprofit organization which
is dedicated to the improvement of the DUI defense bar as well as informing
the public about this ever-changing and complex area of law. To join,
members must be receive recommendations from two attorneys or judges and,
once admitted, members are required to attend NCDD-sponsored seminars.
“I have so long looked up to ‘rock-star’ founding members
like Seattle-based Doug Cowan and California-based Lawrence Taylor. I
feel very honored to join them and so many other excellent DUI attorneys
in this organization,” said Baumgarten.
Located in Pullman, WA, Baumgarten Law Office PLLC has grown to be one
of the area’s top criminal defense firms. The firm may be reached
