The Law Office of Dan E. Liebman, PLLC, has taken those cases, that at first glance, seem impossible to win, and win.
Whether you are facing drunk driving charges or marijuana (DUI) charges, you have questions regarding breath tests, refusals, license suspensions, are seeking a reduction in charges, or are in need to go to trial, The Law Office of Dan E. Liebman, PLLC, can help.

Sentencing hearings are often taken for granted, and not bifurcated, spilt into two separate hearings. One to enter your plea. One to pass sentence. In criminal law, most practices will combine the two. Sometimes it makes tactical sense. Sometimes it does not.

All who know your charges, friends, family, the prosecutors, the judges, they all want to lock you up for years and throw away the key. And some lawyers will take that first deal, or go to trial. Sometimes when neither are good choices, you need a lawyer to find another way.

In some matters, hiring an attorney who takes the time to read the law, the statutory construction, and understands all the possible steps one can take, can mean the difference between going to jail or going home. A law practice that takes the time to prepare your case, schedule hearings, edit irrelevant matters, and keep the focus on important circumstances is successful. A lawyer who prepares to show the court facts specific to your case, that's a law practice that wins. When it seems impossible to convince the prosecutors, and the court to understand your mitigating circumstances, sometimes compelling expert testimony can help. We focus on the center of your issues and presented your facts in a way that gives the court the statutory opportunity to rule in your favor. This can make all the difference in your sentence.

If you are a regular medical marijuana smoker and you are on probation for alcohol DUI, don't tell the court you can quit both. Your setting yourself up for failure and will be back doing time. My office treats medical marijuana, the as the law treats it, as a medicine. You need your medication when on probation. You need that box on your restrictions while on probation, unchecked. Call my office, we have been successful convincing courts to allow marijuana use while on probation for DUIs for alcohol. We have unchecked that box.

You want a lawyer who takes the time to make that argument, not one who does not know it was there to make.
Family law encompasses a breadth of issues relating to marriage and raising children.
There are two kinds of divorce lawyers: those who work on solving the specific problems of a case, and those who are process-oriented, and treat every case exactly the same.

The second kind will fight vigorously for a sofa, for example, when the client has said he or she doesn't really care about furniture. Such lawyers feel they are "just doing their job" but it's the wrong job.

Dan Liebman strives to be in the first group. Dan Liebmanlistens and crafts a customized plan for every client. His No. 1 goal is to get the divorce process behind you, so you can start to create the kind of life you want.

Child custody: As part of the divorce process, it is important to keep the children's best interests in mind when attempting to create comprehensive and attentive custody, visitation and parenting plans.
Child support: The amount of child support that is to be paid is set by a state statute and calculated by entering certain numbers, such as income of each parent and number of children, into a standard formula.
Spousal support/maintenance: Not all cases dictate a need for spousal support. However, your lawyer can advise you whether or not spousal support may be available to you or needs to be fought against.
Property division: In Washington, property is divided equally and fairly, but not necessarily 50-50, as our state abides by the law of equitable division and is a community property state.
Business valuations: If an individual has some interest or stake in a closely held or family business and is divorcing, it is essential that the business be properly valued to ensure that it is appropriately divided between the spouses during the divorce.
High net worth divorce: When a divorce involves high-dollar assets and property, you want a lawyer on your side who can handle the most complex and intricate matters. Dan Liebman is this type of attorney.

expiration of the 90 waiting period upon motion of the petitioner if the respondent was properly served, but failed to respond
the parties agree on all issues, including property division, parenting arraignments, and financial support
the Court conducts a trial to resolve disputed issues.
Parenting Plans

If children are involved parenting plans are needed. Parenting plans can be a very difficult task when parents disagree on who takes care of the children. A plan can be about power plays, jealousy, and emotional issues between parties instead of what the law says it is; What is in the "best interest of the children". My law office explains how and why the focus needs to be on the law not what may be bad emotional baggage.

Paternity literally means fatherhood. Establishing paternity creates a legal relationship between a father and a child. Establishing parentage for a child provides that child many potential benefits. Some of those benefits include:
A sense of belonging because the child knows both parents.
If your child becomes sick, the family doctor will appreciate a full family medical history.
Your child may be eligible for government benefits such as social security or veteran's dependent benefits.
Your child may qualify for medical insurance coverage through the other parent's health plan and could become the beneficiary of a life insurance policy. Your child may also have the right to future inheritance benefits.
Your child will become eligible for financial support from both parents.
