Testimonials

  • Great attorney - highly recommended!
    Matt is a great attorney. I highly recommend his services. After receiving a DUI while on probation for a case in Seattle Municipal Court, being nervous was putting it lightly. Matt kept me informed throughout the entire process and was very professional in all of the hearings. Ultimately, my case was dismissed due to lack of probably cause to arrest. Without Matt's comprehensive knowledge of the law and professionalism, I'm sure I would not have received this end result. After talking with numerous DUI attorneys of all price ranges, Matt was the one I trusted most and I owe him many thanks.

    Being arrested for DUI in Washington is not a joke. You need the best representation out there. Hire Matt Leyba.
