Since 2003, I have committed myself to becoming one of the most well-respected well-renowned criminal defense attorneys in Western Washington. I work hard every day to achieve this goal by being more prepared, more knowledgeable, and more aggressive than my peers and opponents.
I have become known by the legal community and the court staff in almost every court in Lynnwood, Bothell, Everett, Seattle, Shoreline, Edmonds, Bellevue, Redmond, and more! My membership in national organizations and continued training keep me on the cutting edge of all DUI and Criminal issues in Washington State.
I have studied DUI law with the National College for DUI Defense at Harvard Law School, and am ready to fight for you! I also recently completed the NHTSA and IACP DWI Detection and Standardized Field Sobriety Testing Student Course – this is the same course officers must complete to administer Standardized Field Sobriety Tests!
While in school, I worked as an intern in both the public defense and private defense arenas. After graduating, I began my career as a public defender for the city of Shoreline, handling over 100 cases a day at times. Now I own my own firm, practicing law the way it is meant to be practiced – with an eye towards detail, aggressive representation, and unsurpassed client satisfaction. I created my firm to be a different kind of law firm. The kind you have been looking for.
Our office’s mission is to embody excellence, experience, empathy, and enthusiasm in everything we do.
We strive to provide the highest quality legal representation for individuals charged with DUI and DUI related offenses, Domestic Violence, other minor criminal traffic offenses, and all areas of criminal law in general. I am one of the highest rated criminal defense attorneys in the Lynnwood, Bothell, and Snohomish County areas on the independent AVVO rating scale. I am one of the highest rated DUI and Domestic Violence defense attorneys in the same areas. I have been asked to sit as a judge pro-tem in some of the courts in Snohomish County.
I have emphasized criminal and DUI defense since the start of my career as a lawyer. I’ve never done anything else. I have worked as a public defense attorney, managing caseloads over 300 cases at any one time, and as a private attorney, focusing my skills and craft on creating the best possible defense in every case. I continue to learn and refine my legal skills by being a member of local and national organizations that support DUI and criminal defense attorneys with membership and continuing legal education. I have even given presentations about DUI law to local chemical dependancy treatment providers, and written a published legal guide on finding the right defense attorney for your case. Most recently I have graduated from the same NHTSA certification course the police officers go through.
Being charged with any criminal charge is one of the most stressful and upsetting things a person can go through. I take special pride in knowing each of my clients needs and goals for their case. I work hard to do as much of the worrying for you as possible, so you can worry about the things you normally do, resting assured that your case is in the hands of someone who not only knows how to help you, but cares enough about you to want to help you as well. I will remain in close contact with you, protect your privacy, and keep you informed about every aspect of your case, so you don’t have to worry about whether or not you’re being taken care of.
In addition to working hard to get you the results you want on any criminal case, I am known throughout the legal community for not only my legal skill, but my love of the field and profession. I truly enjoy practicing criminal and DUI defense, and this enjoyment shines through in every aspect of my representation of you as his client.
