  • “Thanks again for all your assistance, you did more than my expectations. I think I'll be able to keep my job, and for that I owe you everything.” - A Local Firefighter

  • “Going through the court system can be so confusing and maddening. I don't know what would have happened if I had another lawyer. Kevin was always available to answer my questions, no matter how paranoid or irrational. He truly cares and is the best in Seattle.” - A.B.

  • “Thank you for all that you did for my family and me. There is nothing you can say about the support you gave us.” - B.H.

  • “MOST TRUSTWORTHY AND RESPECTEDLAWYER!!!!! Kevin has taken care of many of my criminal cases, starting from a Negligent Driving to Reckless to DWI. I worked with other lawyers, actually 7 to be exact, and no one even comes close to Kevin's expertise. He worked and works very hard in order to get a ticket dismissed or reduced the least to say. He has been a very thorough and very knowledgeable attorney. He has dismissed and/or reduced all of the the cases in which I hired him to represent me! He is the Best! The Only Attorney I would hire to represent me in any criminal court. He has done a superb job, and I am very happy to have such an understandable at the same time aggressive lawyer that will do everything in his power to help you!” -A.C.

  • “While my traffic case was minor, I didn't want to go it alone. My friend recommended Kevin to me. From the first phone conversation til it was resolved, Kevin and his team were pure perfection! This is the team you want on your side. Period.”  -K.M.

  • “Superstar DUI lawyer! I had never had any sort of dealings with the law before I was arrested for DUI. I blew over twice the legal limit at the police station and basically thought my life was screwed up for good. I called a few lawyers and told them my situation, the response i got was consistently something to the effect of, “The blood alcohol level in your case is just too high, you're just going to have to take a DUI, sorry.”. I was about to accept my fate, but then i had a stroke of luck, I found Kevin.

I called him up and talked about my situation, he literally laughed when I told him what the other lawyers had said, incredulous that they could be so bad. Right then I knew that he was different than the others, a cut above the rest. I could tell that he knew everything there was to know about fighting a DUI. So I went with him, and I have never been more happy about a decision in my life. The first court date was nerve wracking, sitting in a courtroom on a cold wooden bench with a bunch of other people in similar situations. Kevin was smooth, intelligent, and confident, smiling and joking with the prosecution, they smiled and laughed back, you could tell they knew him and respected him. Even the judge cracked a few jokes with him.

Kevin was able to get my breath test completely thrown out, I am still not sure how on earth he did this, as everything was done by the book at the police station…. it was some kind of technicality, I think. The prosecution ended up offering us a deal for a reduced charge; reckless driving, and couple days work release jail, in a jail of my choice, plus a couple days on a public work crew, and a fine. This alone would have been an amazing result, considering my BAC. Kevin was able to get this reduced even further!! I ended up with a slap on the wrist; Reckless driving (30 day license suspension) with 3 days electronic in home monitoring, a $300 fine and some various counseling sessions, that's it! And he was able to get the judge to give me a 24 month deferred sentence, which means its completely off my record in 2 years if i stay out of trouble, piece of cake!

Lets review:

-Without Kevin: DUI permanently on my record, up to 364 days in jail and a $5000 fine. Huge license suspension.

-With Kevin: Reckless driving, $300 fine, 3 days hanging out at home with an ankle bracelet, 30 day license suspension, attend some counseling sessions.

This guy is the best DUI lawyer around, period. He's the guy that will use every ounce of his abilities to get you out of the hole that you're in. He knows every nuance, loophole, nook and cranny there is to know about DUI law. I had such immense piece of mind just knowing that he was fighting for me, and now that its over, a huge weight is lifted off my shoulders because of the AMAZING ruling that he was able to get me. 5 stars all around, recommend to everyone facing DUI in the Seattle area. If you don't get a good result with Kevin, you just plain wouldn't have gotten a good results anywhere else, there is nobody better."               -A.D.
