Alex Uskoski
Clark County Attorney Since 2016

I focus my law practice exclusively on defending driving-related criminal charges and navigating the collateral licensing issues that are often associated with those charges. To this end, a large portion of my practice is devoted to Department of Licensing administrative hearings (also called “Implied Consent” hearings). I have argued over 500 hearings, successfully obtained over 100 dismissals, and prevailed on dozens of appeals in Clark County Superior Court (including several commercial licensing cases). The odds are often stacked against drivers at these hearings, and I am passionate about ensuring that every detail and piece of evidence is carefully examined to craft the best legal defense possible at these hearings.


Beyond criminal and administrative litigation, I was also chosen to work with the Washington Association of Criminal Defense Lawyers (WACDL) to assist in drafting statutory amendments and law changes relating to DUI licensing issues. In 2019, I testified in front of the state senate in support of these positive legislative changes, which simplify many aspects of the licensing process for drivers convicted of DUI-related offenses. Additionally, I was selected by the Washington Foundation for Criminal Justice (WFCJ) as a presenter on DUI licensing strategies at the statewide DUI Defense Seminar in both 2019 and 2020. As a result of my ongoing work in both the local and statewide criminal defense community, I was awarded the “Rising Star” award by the Clark County Bar Association in 2020. I continue to work closely with the defense community and DOL administration at the forefront of these issues, and I take pride in ensuring that every driver is afforded a fair opportunity to be heard in this complex and often overwhelming area of law.
